the thermostat that is located behind the blue circle. I did not see any ice in behind the panel that I removed to get access to the thermostat. I did not remove the bottom panel. Please advise.
ok. Just to make sure I understand. It is the fridge not the freezer that I am checking. Your reply says empty the freezer. Is it the fridge you are referring to?
ok. I have removed the cover at the bottom. There was about 5mm of ice at the bottom in a metal tray looking unit at the bottom . No ice remains in the fridge. Shall I refit or is there anything else I need to check first?
thanks . I have refitted and just turned back on. Fingers crossed. I will let you know how I get on. Thanks for your help so far.
this has not worked . The fridge reached 11 degrees and no lower. I have opened again and the bottom is again icing up. Can you advise please
the fan located inside the unit that I removed did not have ice in it. I can move it with my finger. It is free to turn.
I can hear a motor noise on each side when opening each door in turn . Should a fan sound like a normal fan would/should. Silly question perhaps but I am trying to distinguish the sound of motors from what avfan might sound like.
ok. I can hear the fan coming on when I shut the fridge door. The motor running background noise is increased when I shut the door. I hear a click sound about 2 -3 seconds after I shut the door and then a faint but detectable whirring sound bit is at a higher pitch Tha the motor sound
Ok. I will be in touch later this PM when back from work.
ok. Just opened the unit again. The top of the evaporator is furred up. By this I mean the top metal bar of the evaporator metal grid. The wires are lightly furred also. In addition the ice tray as ice building up again and the lower part of the cover unit that houses the fan has some ice build up. Does that help in any way?
ok. So you think I need to replace the fan? I am happy to order a replacement part but please confirm that is what you mean?
sure. Let me try that. I will let you know how I get on.
sorry just to check. Is it the fan motor I need or the blade. I think it is the motor but wanted to double check.
