You do not access from the side. Access is from the front. You remove the front grill and the entire bottom skid has to be pulled forward. They either have two screws holding the skid down in the front or they are on the side at the very bottom. When you pull the skid out you will have a number of issues to deal with. 1. The refrigerant tubing is looped behind the unit and as you pull forward and later push it back you run the risk of kinking the lines or having them hang up on something. 2. The power cord for the compressor actually is plugged in at the back top of the compressor compartment it is too short and virtually impossible to get out and back in again without accessing the back of the unit as well. 3. The drain tube will most likely get yanked out as well and will require that you access the back of the unit anyway to push it in properly.

Panel between the of doors rs2530bwp is very hot

f the space between the doors is warmer than normal, there is a problem with the airflow over the condensing coil. First, remove the front grille below the door. Then use a brush and vacuum to clean the condenser coil. After the coil is clean feel for warm air blowing from the condenser fan. If you do not feel any air, the condenser fans probably not running. To check the fan pull the refrigerator out from the wall and unplug it. Then remove the lower access panel. Once the panel is removed, try to turn the fan blade by hand. If it turns free, plug the refrigerator in and see if it is turning. If the motor is not running a voltage check is required to confirm the motor is defective. If you have a meter and feel comfortable making live voltage checks, check the ac voltage to the motor. The reading should be at least 110 volts. If you have the voltage, the fan motor has to be replaced.

My True TD 50 18 beer cooler does not cool beers

If you hear a clicking noise coming from the compressor there is about a 80% chance that the compressor is dead. But you'll have to call someone out to be sure.
If the fan motor behind the grill is running (condenser fan) then the compressor should be running and vice versa. If the compressor is hot as a pistol and clicking and the fan motor is not working then it may cool down if you shut it off and you might just have a bad fan motor. With power turned off the condenser fan motor should freely spin. Compressor have a 5 year warranty from the manufacture not including labor and additional materials. Hope this helps.

How to replace the condensor fan on GE Mod.gdl20kcsabs --bottom freezer

How To Replace the Condenser Fan The condenser fan is located behind the refrigerator. It may be necessary to remove an access panel to reach it.
If the fan blade is damaged, it can be removed from the fan motor and replaced separately.
Caution:Please read our safety information before attempting any testing or repairs.
cautiontri.gif Before replacing the condenser fan, unplug the refrigerator to avoid an electrical shock hazard.

The fan motor is held in place with screws and possibly a mounting bracket. Remove the bracket and the screws and pull the motor back away from the housing.
The fan motor is connected by two or three wires. Label the wire placement on the motor before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected to the terminals with slip-on connectors or a plug. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.

Remove the fan blade from the old motor and install it onto the new motor. Connect the wires to the new motor and install the motor into the bracket or housing. Make certain that all of the screws are tightened securely.
Replace the access cover (if any) and plug in the refrigerator.

My true back bar cooler dosent cool it is not iceing over

If you can gain access to the compressor, you will see 2 copper lines going to the compressor. One is smaller than the other. VERY CAREFULLY lightly touch the smaller line while the unit is running. If the compressor is running, that line will be extremely hot.
Start there.
Let me know if I can be of further help.

With the year of the car, the electric motors for the windows are weakening. the rubber seals on the windows have so much hold on the window, that a weak motor will not have enough power and thus will need to be replaced. You can remove the door panels, by removing all the screws, take flathead screwdriver and lighly pry around panel, pull up and remove panel. Then remove inside plastic and you will have access to the window motors.

Need to replace motor in 12 cooler

There are 2 motors...Evaporator fan motor...chill everything down...and the Condenser fan motor to remove the heat pulled out of the food...please clarify.
1.But at any rate the freezer or evaporator fan is behind the freezer compartment wall....take out all screws that hold it in place and you will expose the fan...the mounting bracket will be the easiest way to remove it...take it out and the fan will come with it......

2. If it is the condenser fan motor it will be the one down by the will need to remove the panel on the back of the frig down toward the will be able to access the area where the compressor and fan are....(be prepared for dust bunnies).

I hope this helps....please rate me...thanks..The Fang
