There are 2 possible problems. One is the defrost cycle is not working properly this is usually indicated by a large amount of frost on the back freezer panel. If so, the circuit will have to be repaired and the evaperator thawed to remove the ice build up. The other is the fresh food damper is not working properly this is behind the "lump" in the back of the fridge compartment above the top shelf, remove the louver panel to see if it is open or closed. closed will be warm open should be cold. The water dispenser reservoir is probably frozen due to poor air circulation.

Not sure of the description of the fault. If you are saying that the internal fan will not run but that you have put a power supply to it and it has run, it could be a number of possibilities... You described moving the cabinet. It is highly possible that a pipe or part of the refrigeration system has been damaged in the move and caused a loss of gas. If you remove the back panel to expose the evaporator (cold coil), and turn the system on, after 5 to 10 mins you should see a frost build up over the whole of the coil. If you dont then you probably have a leak. Result call a fridge guy. Leaks can vary in cost and is entirely dependent on where the leak is located and how long it takes to find it. If it does freeze the whole coil then you may well have a problem with the defrost heater or defrost thermostat. Both of which need to be intact in order to provide a neutral supply to the fan motor. You can (IF COMPETENT) check that you have resistance across both of these elements. If you have an open circuit on either then that is your problem. (PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THE DEFROST THERMOSTAT HAS TO BE BELOW 0'C IN ORDER TO HAVE ZERO RESISTANCE ACROSS IT...I.E. COIL COLD). Hope this is of some help.

Take the back cardboard panel off of the back and feel if the compressor is hot. alsocheck to see if the condensor fan is running. if the fan is inop, change it. If the compressor is hot, find a clamp on amp probe and clamp it on one of the wires going to the compressor.If the reading is over 5, you have a bad compressor. You may be able to get by with a RCO410 three in one hardstart.

Below bottom grate is a defrost timer. Turn slowly clockwise until you hear compressor start. If this works, replace defrost timer.
Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

be aware that not repairing this asap that you are causing yourself more problems First I would change out the fan capacitor and see if this could be the problem. Secondly if the capacitor isn,t the problem change out the motor . By continuing to allow the system to cycle like this the compressor will take a dive on you costing more . Good Luck

Testimonial: "Yes, it's dual run capacitor problem. I used a stick to spin the fan blades and it starts to slowly spin and up to normal speed, so motor is good."
