Re: refrigeraotr is out but freezer still works
Doesnt make adiff how you loaded freezer, shouldnt affect fan operation anyway. if you have a meter you can check for proper voltage(110v) to fan wires and if you have power youll need to replace fan, easy enough to do just a few screws and about $50.. part number 5304445861.

It does sound like a bad fan motor. With the compressor getting hot you may need to change the start relay, overload and run capacitor if it continues to run like this with a defective fan motor. What is the correct model number?Sea Breeze The condenser fan motor for a model MZD2766GES is part number=> 61005323 Condenser Fan Motor or here=> 61005323 Condenser Fan Motor
The reason everything is hot is because you stopped the unit from "Breathing" through the condenser (not evaporator) by allowing dust to build up. This is how the system disperses heat absorbed in the freezer section (evaporator).
Hi, if the condenser fan is up and running at the back, what about the compressor? When the fan is on, the compressor should also be on. Place your hand on top of the compressor, but carefully as it could be very HOT if it is locked up! If it is hot, more then likely the compressor has failed and is off on its overload. If you can hear it click on and off so often, it is stuck and tripping on the overload. Check the condenser coil in back to make sure it has no layer of dust covering the front of the coil. This will cause internal pressures in the system to be very high causing the compressor to stop. Check and make sure the fan in the freezer, evaporator fan is also running. Check what I have asked of you and keep me posted. Sincerely, Shastalaker7
I would pull the refrig out , and remove the back panel , covering the compressor and fan motor . Check to see if the fan is working . Fan not working , causes the divider panel , to get very hot . Also , fan not working , causes the compressor to over heat and cut off on the overload .
When compressor cycles off, your freezer fan should shut off as well !
Freezer fan should not be spinning while compressor off.
You might need a control board replacement, that controls fan.
If you are talking about compressor run time, that is a bit excessive, usual causes are dirty condensers but you say they are clean - are your condensers at the bottom of the unit ? If so make sure the condenser fan next to the compressor is running too, blowing air ont he condenser.
You said, overloaded freezer may have caused fan to go out? Is this possible?
Cleaned dust from compressor and shut off to let it cool down but it is
still not working
Yes It's possible. If the freezer is so packed full where the packages cover the air vents in the rear of the freezer. The freezer and the fridge share the cold air and this is the first think we look for if the fridge is warm and the freezer cold, And the fan works nonstop rather than cycling off and on!
What is the model number and year of your fridge!
Waiting your response. Huuum Please remember to leave a rating!
Check the simple things first.
Has the condenser coil ever been cleaned? This coil is either under the refrigerator bottom or in the back behind the cardboard or metal plate back at bottom. If this coil gets plugged with dirt it causes the system to over work. possibly causing the compressor to over heat. there is also a fan motor there.
See if this fan is turning then UNPLUG the refrigerator touch the motor and see if it is hot to the touch... PLEASE BE CAREFUL THIS MOTOR CAN BURN if it is overheating. slightly warn is ok.
After that your getting into a little different problem and harder to diagnose.
When you plug the refrigerator in does the compressor start right up or do you here a hum then click?
Hum then click could be a bad overload on the compressor or a bad starter. also on the compressor some models have the overload/starter all in one part. These are just possibilities.
