Your Bethesda refrigerator is a complex machine with a number of moving parts. The fan is probably one of the more important parts in the system as it moves air both in to and out of the refrigerator. If the fan in your refrigerator stops working properly, it can result in a number of issues. Here are some of the most common signs that you have a refrigerator fan problem and a few solutions.

 Not Cool Enough

If your refrigerator is not cool enough or simply is not cool at all, it could be due to a fan problem. Usually, this is due to a condenser fan issue as the air is not being moved properly throughout the system. If the cooling is simply uneven, it can be due to a problem within the unit and not necessarily with one of the more expensive parts on the back.

It’s Noisy

Keep in mind that your refrigerator has a circulating fan inside the unit. This fan is designed to move air throughout unit, so that it can properly defrost once a cycle is complete. If the fan starts to make loud noises such as chirping, squeals or even groans, it can be due to a number of possible issues.

It could be due to a dirty fan motor, the coils themselves might be dirty, or it could be due to a number of fan motor issues such as a lack of lubrication or a bad bearing. These can all be fixed relatively quickly, and even the replacement of a fan motor is a quick and easy job.

Whatever your fan issues are, call All Time Services for assistance as soon as you notice the problem. This will ensure your Bethesda refrigerator is fixed as quickly as possible. Without proper air flow from a circulating fan, the rest of the system will wear down much faster. And if the problem is in the condenser fan, it could be a sign of a much larger problem.
