Default evaporator fan "on and off" every few seconds
Model Number: FRS26RLECS0   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: 5 - 10 years

I have a Frigidaire FRS26RLECS0. There is a fan inside (sounds like behind the icemaker) that cuts on and off constantly for a while, then sometimes runs for a bit, then goes back to cutting on and off again. Freezer and fridge temps seem to be ok. What is the most likely culprit? And would it be hard for a very experienced DIY person to fix it?

Thank you in advance! Patrick

If you can get to the evaporator fan motor, remove it's connector and with a cheater cord, apply 115 volts to it. If it still is intermittent, replace it. If not, suspect a bad wire someplace.
