Hi Michael, I am not sure how old the fridge is, perhaps 10 years. It is a tall upright fridge, not a fridge freezer so the smell is prominent in the top of the fridge. The fridge compressor ran for 16 seconds when I switched in on after 3 weeks off, then it cut out for 30 seconds and it repeated this for about 20 times. The internal fan turned very slowly when the compressor was not working. The fridge has a fan motor in the middle of the inside at the top.
Hi Michael, when the compressor is running the fan is stationary. The fan rotates easily by hand when the fridge is off. I can see the fan because the fan cover has lots of holes all over it like a honeycomb.
The part is called the fan motor and on e spares the part number is ES725001. There are no screws holding it in placed but I can see through the holes that there is an alan key hole in the top back of the part but I didn't know if this was one complete part or a cover for the fan.
