I have a three years old fridge without "no-frost" or anything similar to avoid ice build up. Yet there's a fan in the main compartment - about 90 millimeters in diameter and running simultaneously with the fridge compressor. The salesperson couldn't explain why it is needed.
Now that fan started to produce knocking noise which made my almost silent fridge rather noisy. I detached the fan cover, found a neat connector and unplugged the fan and the noise went away.
Now I have two options - either I fix/replace the fan or just leave it disconnected (or maybe remove it).
Do I really need that fan for the fridge operation or is it just useless and can be left out?
