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.

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.

Kenmore model 3639550610. Ice maker motor and freezer fan motor wont stop. Need to find wiring diagram.

If fridge repair because it is noisy, turning off and on, or running all the time, it could be a sign the condenser fan motor is going bad. Thankfully, this type of repair is not as complicated as some may think. You can check the condenser fan motor yourself and replace it if necessary.

Tools and Materials Needed:

* Multitester
* Screwdriver
* Needlenose pliers

Step 1 - Disconnect the Power

Turn off the power to the refrigerator to prevent electric shock.

Step 2 - Remove the Condenser Fan Motor

The condenser fan motor is located on the bottom of the fridge, most likely toward the back. Heat from inside the fridge is released into the air here. A panel will probably need to be removed to access the motor. Depending on the screw, a screwdriver or nut driver will be required to remove the panel. Find the condenser fan and motor. You can quickly check the fan's operation by seeing if anything is obstructing its rotation. Manually move the fan blades to see if they spin freely. If they do not, you may need to replace the fan. Continue removing the condenser fan motor by taking out the screws that affix it to the mounting bracket.

Step 3 - Test the Condenser Motor

Your condenser fan motor will most likely have 3 wires attached. Some models have just 2. Note which wires are connected from the fan to the motor. Use needle-nose pliers to remove the wire connectors from the motor. Be careful not to damage the wires. After the connectors are removed, use the multitester to check the resistance or passage of electrical current. Set your multitester to ohms.

If the condenser motor has 3 terminals, only the outside terminals need to be checked. The inside one is a ground terminal. Check the terminals by using the multitester probes, touching one probe to one terminal and the other probe to the other terminal. The reading should fall between 0 and infinity. If you reading falls on either 0 or infinity, then the condenser motor is bad and will need to be replaced.

Step 4 - Replacing the Condenser Motor

Condenser fan motors can be ordered from the refrigerator's manufacturer. Once you receive the new motor, check it with your multimeter the same way as the old motor. This will make sure the new motor is in working condition. Attach the wire connectors to the new motor in the identical locations as the old one. You can refer to the new motor's wiring diagram (most likely included with it) if assistance is needed. Now install the new motor under the fridge. Attach it to the mounting bracket using the same screws as before.

Step 5 - Testing the New Motor and Keeping it Efficient

With the new motor connected and attached, turn the power back on. The unit should operate correctly. If it does not come on, check the wiring. Dust and dirt can plug a condenser and affect the fan's ability to discharge heat. Cleaning them several times a year will help the fridge run efficiently.
Hope this help in solving.take care....

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.

TRUE GDM 26 merchandiser has sealed lines to the freeon and cant access. The fan blows warm air and all the lights work. It just doesnt cool.The compressor was cleaned only 2Xs in 3 years.

What do you mean the compressor was cleaned. It sounds to me you need to clean out the condenser coil. free it from all dust and debris. + Does the compressor work and what gas is in the system, does the condenser fan work. I'm assuming that when you say the fan works, it is the evaporator fan inside the cabinet working. You will have access the condenser fan either from the front or rear of the unit. The condenser unit is normally extracted from the rear. it should slide out but take care not to kink any of the pipework.

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
