WE HAVE A SIDE BY SIDE FRIG - AMANA MODEL XRSS287BB - THE FREEZER

Customer Question

WE HAVE A SIDE BY SIDE FRIG - AMANA MODEL XRSS287BB - THE FREEZER SECTION WORKS OK AND MAINTAINS -17 DEGREES C. THE REFRIGERATOR SIDE IS NOT FUNCTIONING [SET AT, BUT NOT MAINTAINING 3 DEGREES C]. THE FAN HAS WORKED OK BUT NOW HAS CEASED TO OPERATE. WE HAVE TRIED DEFROSTING THE WHOLE APPLIANCE - WHEN WE FIRST SWITCHED THE APPLIANCE BACK ON, THE FAN WORKED AND THE TEMPERATURE DROPPED TO THE SET LEVEL OF 3 DEGREES, BUT AFTER 36 HOURS THE SAME FAULT OCCURRED

SHOULD WE CONSIDER REPLACING THE FAN OR IS A MALFUNCTIONING THERMISTER A MORE LIKELY CAUSE. PERHAPS REPLACING THE WHOLE CONTROL PACKAGE LOCATED INSIDE THE R.H.S. REFRIGERATOR SECTION SHOULD BE CONSIDERED?

hAVE TRIED CALLING IN A LOCAL ENGINEER, WITHOUT SUCCESS DURING THIS WEEKEND.

WOULD APPRECIATE YOUR INPUT/ADVICE.

AnthonysTV :

Replace the fan before you do anything else

AnthonysTV :

they go bad and they go intermittent bad

AnthonysTV :

before digging into anything more exspensive the fan must be changed
