Hello everyone, my Kenmore fridge/freezer evaporator fan is constantly running. The compressor is cycling normally (I replaced it couple years ago) and fridge is 40 deg. and freezer is 9 at #9 on the thermostat. Compressor is charged with 5 oz R134A. Is the fan controlled by the control box and is the charge sufficient? Any help appreciated.

Hi,

evaporator fan is constantly running. The compressor is cycling normally

They should be cycling on and off at the same time.

fridge is 40 deg. and freezer is 9 at #9 on the thermostat.

Is #9 turned up all of the way?
Freezer is too warm, probably why the evaporator fan motor is running all of the time. Compressor does not sound ok to me if it is shutting off and the evaporator fan motor is still running!
Check frost pattern on the evaporator.
Check current draw of the compressor.
