Does evaporator fan run all the time?

The evaporator fan motor will continue to run until the refrigerator cools down to the set temperature. Do you have a thermometer that you can use to check the temperature inside the refrigerator? You could have either a cooling problem, or a bad thermostat.

Also know, does the evaporator fan always run?

Good luck. The evaporator fan motor should run anytime the compressor and condenser fan motor are running. The evaporator circulates the air in the freezer and into the refrigerator section. Remove the food from the freezer and remove the evaporator cover from the rear wall of the freezer section.

Secondly, should freezer fan run all the time? The fun running on the freezer all of the time can be concerning. On some models it can be normal. The fan motor in the freezer will not run all the time, it will cycle during a defrost mode and when the unit cycles through the cold control on most models.

Consequently, does the refrigerator condenser fan run all the time?

Air Flow. The condenser in a refrigerator is a motor, and like the one in your car it needs constant airflow to remain cool enough for the working parts to remain in working condition. This forces the condenser fan to work continually to try and disperse the heat.

What happens when evaporator fan fails?

Feel for cold air in the freezer. If the evaporator fan motor stops working, your freezer will begin to defrost. Most freezers don't run the evaporator fan motor when the door is open, so if the fan does work, it will turn off when you open the door. Check the temperature setting on the freezer to be sure it's on cold.
