Hello, That condenser fan motor needs to be replaced. You and doing the right thing as far as using a seperate fan to keep compressor cool,buy replacing the fan the compressor will run cooler and click off by being too hot as you have heard/seen.
Find your model number and call your local appliance parts store and see if they have a CONDERSER FAN MOTOR in stock
Avanb, I can almost assure you that the control board is the problem. I'm assuming that the interior lights are on, but no fans and the compressor is not running. To make sure, first unplug the temperature control harness. (encoder). If the refrigerator starts running, replace the temperature control board (encoder board. If it doesn't start running, replace the main board in back. To remove the control panel, remove the 2 screws located on the bottom. Slide the panel down. Then just disconnect the harness to the temperature control. Catriver.
ck for a clicking sound in the back this problem is often the main board . you can remove the cover in the back and it may be burnt ( you can smell it ) or ck the board for burnt spots. this is a very common problem . and if its running and the compresor is hot to touch . ck the fans in and out and the coil under neath . .. dirty coil ( no cooling ) .. hope this helps mm feed back pls .
Check the starter relay which is next to the compressor behind the cardboard cover on the back. It may be burnt and can't start the compressor. It's on or near the compressor. If it's bad it will rattle when you shake it and may appear burnt.
sounds to me like you have a bad relay on your main control board. It will be located on the back wall of the unit or down by the compressor on older models. The other possible clicking noise would be your starting components on the compressor. You will have to determine where the clicking is coming from and I would start by replacing either the board or the starting components. You could also do a visual inspection on the board for burn spots. Hope this helps. MJ
You have a bad main control board . This is located behind the refrig , behind an 8" X 10 " panel . Either the compressor module , or fan module , is burnt out . Replace this electronic board , and I'm sure the problem will be solved .
