Hi mary,

pull out the fan and check if it is an AC fan or a DC fan. they now uses DC fan in some models.

if it is an AC fan, check its voltage rating and test it directly to the voltage stated in the motor.
if it is a DC, find a power supply and test it with the correct voltage and polarity.

tnx,

drcool

Dose anyone have a owners manual for a true refidgerator GDM-12


The fan your referring to is the condensor fan. it should not be tight to turn. it should spin freely. if it is hard to turn, its probably stuck, which is why its not spinning. Remove grill, slide the nottom portiom out so you have access to fan, remove fan blade, and spraylubricant on fan motor (around the area that the screw that held blade). Remove hair, dirt, string, or anything else that might be prevrnting fan from spinning. sometimes its easier to burn it off. If fan still doesnt spin you may have to replace fan motor.r

I moved my refrigerator to vacum (Frigidaire model PLHT217TAK 2002) and since then the warm air stopped coming out from the front bottom vent. It also stopped making noise, it seems to want to start but...


the condenser fan motor is what blows the air around down there,pull out the machine remove the back bottom panel and you'll see the fan,check it to see if something is stuck in the fan blade keeping it from spinning,do this right away,if the fan isn't blowing you can cook your compressor,if something is wrong with the fan motor you can leave the bottom panel off and stick a regular fan back there to keep the compressor cool until you fix the fan motor.hope this helps

Whirlpool side by side not cooling or freezing. Have already cleaned the condensor coils with no change. I did notice that the fan in the bottom back is not spinning.


that is most likely the problem. If this fan doesnt cool the condenser and compressor it will shut the compressor down. replace the fan and your problem will most likely be fixed.

The compressor fan not properly working.


You need to replace the fan. It doesn't use an external starter. Part 24 on this diagram is your motor. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=502485&diagram_id=124933#d124933

Compressor comes on, some cold air, no fan?


Try spinning fan by hand. If it spins freely, change capacitor. If fan is tight, change fan motor.

I have a LG LHD45EL and the compressor works, fins chill but fan won't turn at all. I took it apart and cleaned the armature of the fan, Used a non-contact device to ensure electric is present in the...


let the unit cool down
with power on try sticking something in there to spin the fan blade
if it spins and continues to work it is a bad capacitor (little shiny metal can sometimes oval or round)
if it doesnt spin i would have to guess the motor is bad
hope this helps

Nef B1432 (2000) not heating up properly


You possibly need to fit a new fan motor, as this will certainly cause temp variations, if it is not working properly.
If you remove the inner rear cover of bottom oven, you will see the element and the fan.Try spinning the fan by hand, it should revolve freely, and rotate on its own after spinning it by hand.
If it does not, then it needs replacing.
It is a fairly straight forward job to replace, just bear in mind that the fan is held on by a left handed nut, so to undo it , hold the fan blade, and unscrew the nut clockwise, as though you were tightening it up, and vice versa to tighten it.

You will have to remove the main rear cover of oven to access the the terminals and the fan motor.

Please rate my fixya soution.
Thanks.

Fridge is not 'freezing', Looks like fan stopped working


could be due to ice build up jamming the fan. take back panel off and check for ice. if ice present the defrost system has failed. also on some models, the fan stops when door is opened. check door switch is operating
