    To me it still sounds like you need to replace the fan.
    The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, and prejudices to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill and suspicion can destroy and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all of its own for the children and the children yet unborn and the pity of it is that these things cannot be confined to the Twilight Zone.

    Hey
    Well the fan still works, and circulates air in the freezer fine. It's just not getting down into the fridge the way I remember.

    Is there something to check to see if it's getting the power/rpms it needs?

    Thanks

    it may operate at different speeds when in defrost mode etc...

    i would say you likely need a appliance guy to multy test /trouble shoot it.

    I was going to post a link to that thread, but the SG search results for "bullsh|t" were too numerous

    sometimes you have to think outside the box to get inside the box .

    I'm not an expert Humboldt but the fan isn't do circulate air in the freezer but to draw it into the fridge. Freezers don't have fans is my reasoning.

    I agree with everything said and will get someone out soon or borrow a multimeter.
    Just to be an ass...the fan IS in the freezer, to push the air.

    Makes more sense to me to have one in the fridge to draw it but, whatever.

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone. Co-worker has a multi-meter, will try to borrow it this week.

    yeah I wrote that wrong. Yes the fan to circulate the air to the fridge is generally in the freezer.
