Common Refrigerator Problems

Some of the more common refrigerator problems that our customers are experiencing are evaporator fan motors and condenser fan motors. The evaporator fan motor has two purposes. First the fan forces warm air across the evaporator, which then forces the refrigerant in the evaporator to boil and turn the liquid into a cold gas. This is where your frost is created on the evaporator. The second purpose is to use the same air that is now cold to push through the duct work that supplies cold air to both the freezer and refrigerator.

The condenser fan motor has the purpose of removing heat from both the compressor and the condenser. This allows the cool and the boiled refrigerant back to a liquid state. It then runs back through the compressor to start the process over again by pumping the liquid refrigerant back to the evaporator to be boiled into a cold gas.

The problem with both of these fans are the result or the manufacturers having to meet the requirements of our EPA to lower the usage of power on the amps to operate what they call energy star appliances. The fans went from operating from 110 v fan motor to now operating from just 9 to 12 v DE power, the result is a shorter life of these two components. In the last five years our refrigerators have become very complicated to diagnose because they are operating from electric circuit boards to operate all functions.
