Every 3 weeks our refrigerator fan freezes and starts making noise,

Every three weeks Our Samsung Side by Side Refrigerator starts making noise. I have to take everything out of the fridge for 12 hours (Keeping everything in the freezer during that time), then I put everything back in the refrigerator and everything is back to normal. Something is causing our blower fan in the refrigerator to freeze, once I unfreeze it everything is fine for another 3 weeks or so. I would like to have it repaired but sometimes service personnel need a little help diagnosing the problem so I wanted to find out what was wrong so I can tell them what needs to be fixed.

I have seen a number of refers build up ice over a long period (weeks) and it was caused by leaking door seals. This mostly happened in the freezer section, but could be in the frig section also.

There is a thermistor on the evaporater line that needs moved over to the other line. It is sometimes faulty but no all the time. It is not staying in defrost long enough. Remove the plastic cover on the back wall. All the ice should be removed and then move thermistor. Usually has yellow wire and a small clip to attach to the copper line.
