Angry Amana evaporator fan

I have an Amana side by side model SXD23VW. The evaporator fan isn't running, but the fan motor is good. It will run when current is applied to the tetminals. What controls that fan motor as to when it runs or not?

Thanks

The defrost thermostat runs in series with the evaporator fan. Very common problem on Amana's. Replace the defrost therm.

Smile Thanks for the reply

Thanks, I will check that out and reply back. I am so disgusted with this 7 year old Amana that I was thinking of buying another brand today. But I may give it another chance.

Thanks again

Thumbs up Update

I decided to get the defrost thermostat (or terminator) and since the frig didn't seem to shut off correctly, I got a new temperature control. Have installed both and everything seems to be working fine. Hope my $60 gamble pays off and I can get more good out of this stress maker!!!

Thanks
