    OK. Got the model number (part of it is scratched out) then went looking for a manual at whirlpool; and it's so old, there are none (fridge states made in 1989) Ugh! This is bad cause we really need it right now (living out of dorm size) I need to fix washer, too and so I'll keep looking for the answers on both. What I can read is 14dcxvl01, and I can't find the a underneath either; so it can't be fan noise- it's loud. I can't seem to be positive the noise is coming from the compressor. The guy who gave it to us said he had it quiet, so how do I do it? The rubber gromets don't look bad, but how do I know and where do I go to get them? Thank you sooo much for your help! If you can help me with this one, we'll go to the washing machine (won't spin, everything else fine) and I'll give you TWO "Fixed Its"! lol Thanks again, I'll check back in a few to see if you responded, or do I go to your icon? I'm tryin! lol

The model and serial number are usually located on one of the inside walls of your box. The condenser fan you are looking for is underneath the box. You might have to take some screws out from the back side of your fridge to access the fan, and coil. The coil must be clean for proper heat rejection. If you want to calculate the cubic feet multiply the hieght, width, and depth together. For instance a fridge that is 7ft tall x 3ft wide x 3 ft deep would be 63 cubic feet.

Sm8280871 washer. How do you take agitator out?

Are you sure this is a model number? It looks more like a Serial number. Model should be on a tag with serial number. Usually starts with letters then about 4 numbers and more letters. Providing that would likely get you better assistance.

Where do I find the model number on a Roper washing machine

Is there a 'tag' in the back of the machine, sometimes called SERIAL # ,it sometimes replaces the model #. If there is no paper, tag, etc. etc. with no numbers , look for a model name. example: Lucie series, Murphy series. Last but not lease look INSIDE [take back off] and on the other side maybe the model # in a 'pocket' plastic back. NEXT:: last but not lease..... check the model # of the MOTOR. Some motors are placed ONLY in a certain models.

Dose anyone have a owners manual for a true refidgerator GDM-12

The fan your referring to is the condensor fan. it should not be tight to turn. it should spin freely. if it is hard to turn, its probably stuck, which is why its not spinning. Remove grill, slide the nottom portiom out so you have access to fan, remove fan blade, and spraylubricant on fan motor (around the area that the screw that held blade). Remove hair, dirt, string, or anything else that might be prevrnting fan from spinning. sometimes its easier to burn it off. If fan still doesnt spin you may have to replace fan motor.r

It was working but stopped blowing cold air.

There is a concealed fan that serves to distribute the cooled air between the two cabinets and 'stir' it to avoid cold spots and that fan isn't running currently.
Go to the link below and enter your full model number to see if Sears has an illustrated breakdown of your Roper. This will show you where the fan is located and you can then decide if you want to DIY or call a pro.

Freezer works - refrigerator does not

evap fan between the two units is more than likely out. What this fan does is use the cooling from the freezer to cool the fridge. This fan is located in the space between the freezer and fridge and has vent slots in front of it for the transfer of the coolong from the freezer. This fan is more than likely on the same channel as the temp control setting for the fridge. To remove the fan motor you will need to remove that moulded channel and as soon as the channel is off presto there is the fan. Take model # and serial # to an appliance parts store for replacement. Good Luck hope this helped you

My refidgerator & freezer stopped getting cold. It is running but no cold air on both sides. (It was making a clicking noise that was coming from the circuit board on the back of the unit) but that has...

Replace the mother board. (it's the board you heard clicking) The only thing you hear running are fans. Check your model and serial number with your parts supplier, as you may be able to get the board free. (only certain models / serial numbers qualify)

Where's my serial number

You should provide a BRAND name in order to find a definite answer to this question. Different manufacturers place this information on nameplates in different locations on their appliances. Most commonly, the Model and Serial numbers are located around the oven door opening. You will have to open the door to see the nameplate. If you have a lower oven drawer, its probably located there. On certain models of Maytag and Fridgidaire (I'm sure there are other manufacturers as well) this same information is located on the BACK of the operator console. If you are still having problems, please post back with your brand name and I'll see if I can give you better guidance.
