Refrigerator Fan

We replaced the old refrigerator cooling fan in our 25RB because it was running continuously and was very loud. Now we have not noticed the new fan running at all and are concerned it is wired incorrectly. Can anyone tell from this picture if it is wired correctly?

I don't see a picture either.

But continuous running and loudness are two different problems. A new fan can be quiet, if you chose the right one. If it's running continuously you need to check the wiring and the thermo switch. It should be attached to one of the cooling fins and it turns the fan on when needed.

Can't speak to the continuous running. The noise is probably just because the backside compartment of the fridge is, by design, open to outside air flow, including the dust that comes in with it. The dust can get into the little bearings of the fan and make it foul up: First noisy and then just quitting.

Those little 12-volt "desktop computer" fans are cheap and easy to install. I just put a new one in ours when the earlier one failed after about three years.

I cannot tell from the picture if it is connected correctly or not. I can tell you that you will only be using the yellow (+12V) and the black (gnd) wires.

Do you have a meter so you can probe those connections? Where is that yellow wire going that is coming from the crimp-on splice?
