GE Monogram Condenser Fan Motor

Our GE Mongram ZIS 42D - built in seems to need a Condenser fan motor. It stops daily now and we restart it to keep things cold. My question is, is there an inexpensive solution or do we need a service tech to replace the motor and is there are range of costs for that type of service call

IS THE NOISE SOMETHING HITTING THE FAN BLADE?
CHECK THE FAN ASSEMBLY BY REMOVING THE BACK PANEL IN THE FREEZER COMPARTMENT.

NORMAL NOISES IN THE UNIT ARE A GURGLING NOISE OR THE SOUND OF RUNNING WATER OR HISSING. THIS IS DUE TO THE FREON BEING PUSHED THROUGH THE SYSTEM AS THE COMPRESSOR RUNS. POPPING OR SNAPPING CAN OCCUR WHEN THE COILS IN THE FREEZER MOVE DUE TO A CHANGE OF TEMPERATURE.

SOURCE: condenser coil fan not runningon GE pds22scrrss

The fan can rotates freely even if there's no power to it(fan probably burn out).You can check if power is going to the fan motor by folowing the two wires fron the motor picking up power from the compresor connections under a black plastic cover on the side of the compresor.If you nave power going to the fan its needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: GE side by side refrigerator. Fridge side not cooling - help!

Hi, they have changed lots of parts, were they defected, did they tested parts for faults or they just change parts, because it's available, there's always a reason why a certain part, go bad. so far you change most of parts in ref. check refrigerant (gas, freon) pressure, check compressor, for faulty suction and high side valve, it's possible your compressor loosing efficiency. or say if compressor normally pump 50 psi. now it's pumping 40 psi. is the refrigeration cycle balance ? is there restriction in your ref. system? is compressor running long enough? plug on ref. let it run for 1hr, listen to compressor for any clicking sound, fans and everything else could be working, be compressor not, compressor could be short cycling (not working long enough) also check voltage in receptacle(outlet) with digital multi-tester, get accurate voltage reading, let me know, could also be a faulty circuit breaker in house (building) not your ref. let me know, system could have very slow refrigerant leak, you could have a very small (slow) gas leak, that's why your refrigerator get hot first, then your freezer, there's a condensate line (loop) that passes through, ref body, close to doors to prevent door gasket from freezing, after few years sometimes develope leaks, cause by rusting. it's very possible there could be small leak in your system. let me know what happened.good luck.

Pull the refrig out , and remove the panel at the bottom , on the back . Behind this panel , will be the compressor and condenser " roll " coil , and the condenser fan motor . From your description of the problem , the fan motor in not operating , or the coils are extremely clogged with dust . If the fan motor is not operating , the most likely cause , is the main control board . You can try replacing the motor first , but , the board is most likely the cause . This is the electronic board , behind the 8 " X 10 " panel , behind the refrig also . If you remove the panel , and look at the board closely , You may see a burned part ( resistor ) . However , replacing the burnt part , will not solve the problem . The complete board will need to be replaced .

Model# gsh22kgmcbb. everything thawing out.coil was covered in dust, cleaned as best i could. fan motor running kind of slow,i think.


Hi,

Are you talking about the Condenser Fan at the back of the fridge next to Motor/Compressor.

If that is running slow it means the fan motor bearings and lubricant inside the fan motor has turned into a sludge which is a common problem. Need to replace the condenser fan motor. You can put a normal household fan behind the fridge to cool the compressor in the meantime.

GE Monogram Built-in refrig has blocked evaporator drain.


You should be able to see the drain under the coil. Part 804 on this diagram. Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing.

The fan behind the fridge at the bottom which cools the compressor , is not turning . Remove the back panel covering the compressor and see if something is blocking the blade . If not , motor is bad , so put a small fan there to keep the coils and compressor cool until you can get a new motor .
