Evaporator Fan Motor - Part # 1483843 Mfg Part # 297250000

Evaporator Fan Motor

RepairClinic Item # 1483843

If the freezer runs too long the evaporator fan motor might have stopped working. On the back wall of the freezer, normally behind a panel which can be removed, there is a small fan. This fan draws air over the evaporator cooling coils and moves it around inside the freezer. If the freezer runs too long, the evaporator fan motor should be checked. Often the fan motor will not run when the door is open, activate the door switch for the fan to work. If the evaporator fan motor doesn't run when the freezer is cooling and the door switch is activated, it should be replaced.

Defrost Heater Assembly - Part # 1864630 Mfg Part # 297348701

Defrost Heater Assembly

RepairClinic Item # 1864630

If the freezer runs too long, the defrost heater assembly might be burned out. Several times a day the defrost heater assembly turns on for a few minutes to melt away any frost that may have accumulated on the freezer evaporator coils. If the defrost heater assembly has burned out, the frost will build up on the coils and eventually no air will be able to travel through the coils to provide cooling to the freezer. The defrost heater can be checked for continuity. If it doesn't have continuity it should be replaced.

Defrost Thermostat - Part # 1483781 Mfg Part # 297216600

Defrost Thermostat

RepairClinic Item # 1483781

If the freezer runs too long, the defrost thermostat might be defective. Several times a day the defrost heater turns on for a few minutes to melt away any frost that may have accumulated on the freezer evaporator coils. In order for this to work, the defrost thermostat has to sense that the coils are cold enough. If the coils are cold enough the defrost heater will turn on. If the thermostat is defective it may not be able to sense the temperature of the coils and then won't turn on the defrost heater. If the defrost heater doesn't turn on, the frost will build up on the coils and eventually no air will be able to travel through the coils to provide cooling to the freezer. The defrost thermostat can be checked for continuity. It should have continuity when it reaches the low temperature of its operating range.
