Your model has the condenser below the refrigerator and the condenser is the item number 3 in this photo=> GC5SHEXNQ00_Unit_Parts It is the warm side coil that you feel warm air coming from below refrigerator. The evaporator coil is inside the freezer on your model. Thanks Sea Breeze

Easy way to check if ur condensor coil is clean

while in operation, with condensor fan running, hold a piece of thick paper up to condensor coil, let go of paper, ir it stays stuck to the coil, the fan is pulling air thru, cooling the coil temp. this is good. if the paper dont stay in place ur condensor coil is dirty and needs to be cleaned

Blows hot air after 5 min. of startup

Check condensor coil for uniform heat all over the coils
If there are "hot spots" Then the condensor may be restricted inside
Check compressor heat. If its too hot to lay your hand on it then
You probably have a restricted condensor which shuts off the compressor with high head pressure
If the unit is old you may want to consider a replacement.

Inside strip of fridge is very hot. cleaned out behind fridge and the coils, etc. fan is barely moving/not moving. any suggestions???

Replace the fan. The strip has a freon line running behind it, and when it is hot, this tells us that you have a dirty condensor, bad condensor fan motor, bad evaporator fan motor, defrost problem, or a freon system problem. When you say your fan is barely moving, I am assuming this is your condensor fan motor, which sucks air through the hot freon lines in the condensor coils, and cools the freon off. If it is barely moving, it can't cool the freon. In some brands a slow moving condensor fan can be caused by a bad main control board. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Runs but won't get cold

The first step would be to clean the condensor coils to remove the dirt accumulation which decreases their efficiency. Also, check to make sure the condensor fan is operating properly. This pulls room air over the condensor coils and cools the refrigerant.

Where do the 2 wires that go's to the points go

The condensor and negative coil wire both attach to the contact points. When the points are closed the ignition coil charges ( sota speak) and when the points open, the coil discharges a spark to the spark plug. The condensor is an electrical "shock absorber", it smooths out electrical spikes.
Good luck, make sure the point gap is correct.

Most dehumidifiers have a "Frost Guard" mounted on the condensor coil. If frost accumulates on the condensor coil the frost guard turns the compressor off until the frost melts, then comes back on again. For the dehumidifier to work properly, the surrounding (ambient), temperature must be higher than 65 degress. This temperature allows the moisture in the air to condense on the coils and drip into the reservoir without freezing up on the condensor coil. Also, if the humidity is too low, (below 45%), the same condition will occur. So it will help to keep the parameters in mind when you have this issue.

Thank you for your allowing me to advise you on this issue.
