Do the evap.fans run all the time?
Model Number: RS2577SL Brand:
5 - 10 years
Looked at a Samsung RS2577SL trying to find out if the evap.fans should have been running with fridge powered up?I am thinking yes they should be running fulltime,unless in defrost.Fridge had been setting days with the compressor kicking out repeatedly on thermal.Compressor kicks out on thermal still checked cap. and within tolerence,and I am thinking maybe a fan or control board issue resulted in a frozen evap. which ultimately lead to the compressor lock up.The fans are DC controlled by the board.I tried to pin out the terminal at the board for voltage and didnt have voltage?Went across several didnt pin combos as not sure which pins to hit exactly.I had to be very cautious as not to short when checking either.Went according to sticker diagram on back.My probes wouldnt fit into the fan plug either to check there.Did not want to force and leave fridge worse than when I came.With the heavy electronics maybe the fans shut off for some other reason than defrost? Thanks for any help.
