Could you help to clarify what is the correct static resistance value for R-fan motor (refrigerator RB1955VQ, part DA31-00003N)?
My R-fan does not rotate, its resistance is 160 oum or so.
Answer Hello Gary. The manufacture does not offer resistance values. However, here is how they say to test them. Fridge and Freezer evap fans are 120vac, controlled by a 5vdc door switch, a small resistance in the door switch
will cause an intermittent no cool condition.
My fridge compartment too cold and everything is frozen. Could it possibly be the fan. I open the door and dont hear a fan running.
I removed the back panel and see your part number 10. Should there be a fan (blades) on the spindle which sticks out of the back of it?
Answer Hello Nick,
As far as the fan there is a wheel that has blades on it. This would be on the front part of the fan motor where the shaft comes out of motor. For the freezing in the refrigerator compartment you will want to check the thermistors to make sure that they are not faulty. Make sure not broken and check resistance. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Thank you for your answer on part. Now I am confused by your details of where the fan is located and what do I have to remove (I assume in freezer section) to get to the defective motor location?
Answer Hello Mary Jo. You will need to determine which fan motor is not running. You have one in the freezer and one in the refrigerator. Both of these are accessed by removing the back wall of the refrigerator/freezer. Hope this helps.
