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

No power to freezer fan on hotpoint ffa91


On some of theses units the fans are connected through the defrost bi metal. When the bi metal gets cold the fan comes on. Check and replace bi metal. Should solve your issue.

My fridge upper unit isnt working, there is no air circulating, i could hear the compressor working and it seems the lower unit is fine. it started by making a constant ticking sound and then a day later,...


You will need to look into the possible chance that your evaporator Fan motor has stopped, been damaged or the freezer is not defrosting properly. To allow it to continue running can damage the compressor. Click Here=> MFD2560HES Evaporator Components then 12002744 Evaporator Fan Motor and again the 67002493 Defrost Heater I have all the instructions and hands on if you would like my assistance I will be here to assist and repair you Maytag That ticking noise could have been your fan blade finally reaching the frost until the fan stopped. Let me know Here or or here on Fixya, Thanks, Sea Breeze

The side door is getting hot


Hello,
Pull the unit out away from the wall. Remove the bottom cardboard or metal cover that covers the compressor area. Assure that the compressor fan is working usually when the fan is not working the sides of the unit will start to heat. If the compressor fan is not working shut the unit off until the compressor cools. I have used a box fan while leaving the cover off on a unit to keep the compressor cooling while I had to wait for the new compressor fan motor to come in. DO NOT RUN THE REFRIGERATOR IF THE FAN IS NOT WORKING UNLESS YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO KEEP THE COMPRESSOR COOL like a fan constantly blowing on the compressor. If you have any further questions message me back and please remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future. Thanks
Rick

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

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
