SOURCE: Refrig evap fan not running, but fan OK

You can remove the fan and apply the normal voltage for your home or use a test meter to check the wires going to the fan. It should be the house voltage. Let me know, Sea Breeze

Your indications does not make sense! Your unit has ONE compressor that uses ONE evaporator coil to cool both sides. So if the FREEZER side is not cooling the fridge side should not cool either! Are you sure you don't have the freezer and refrigerator sides reversed?

Is it freezing from the bottom up? If so check the drain is clear. If it's freezing all over, check the condenser is clean and clear and the compressor switches off when it reaches temperature. Lastly, check the door seals properly all the way round

Cart wont move just hums was working ? 85 Ezgo 36 volt


If all wiring is factory then check batteries under load. If all good then test motor. With rear wheels off the ground, disconnect the main pos and neg wires from the batteries. Then disconnect the four wires from the motor. You can use a voltmeter to measure the value of the two coils of the motor. Measure between A1 and A2 then S1 and S2 ( sometimes F1 and F2) Should get 1 or 2 ohms. If that good then jumper A1 to F1, connect A2 to 12 volts and F2 to 12 volts, one neg and the other pos. You will get a spark but the motor should start turning if good.

Kenmore 106.54584400 fridge warm, air baffle No open in normal ops. in test mode opens and closes but evap fan does not run. fan motor runs during normal ops. thermistors good in test mode.


I would meter test the evap fan it may have gone out cuz if it was ur defrost timer or cold control you would have no motor condenser fan working either? and no cold control damper working in test mode?
is the fan impeeded or just not moving?

Bownes lawn tractor wont turn over. Battery fully charged and all safety switches were changed. its a briggs and stratton 12 1/2 horsepower


with a volt meter set to DC, pull the wires off of the starter solenoid coil (the small wires) and check for 8 - 12 volts DC at the wires when the key is turned. A poor connection at the solenoid coil will cause slow turning engine cranking or none at all.
If you have 8 - 12 volts there check for voltage to ground on the large cable that goes from the solenoid to the starter motor, one probe on the cable and the other on ground or ( - ) at the battery. Turn the key to start, if you have voltage to the starter motor but it does not turn loosen and retighten the mounting bolts to the starter motor and if that does not help do the same for the engine to ensure you have a good ground. If none of that works your starter motor needs to be replaced, if you have no voltage to the motor the solenoid or battery connections are faulty.
You can also quickly test starter health by conecting a set of jumper cables to a good battery, clamp the neg. to the engine block anywhere and tap the pos. to the starter cable connection from the starter solenoid, if the engine spins over your starter is healthy and the issue is certainly between the key switch and the starter solenoid.

I doubt your understanding of how the motor works is correct. More likely 2 of the terminals on the motor are for the field coils. The battery charger should not be used directly to power the motor without a battery also connected. The motor would function as a short circuit to the battery charger.
Instead, you can use 2 car batteries to test if the motor works. The full 36 volts is not needed.

Ezip 500 won't run : new batteries fully charged but it still shows low battery light...what else could be wrong


i'm having the same problem. checked fuses and both are good. going through the wiring harness to look for shorts. have a bad feeling the micro controller died, that is the little plastic box with metal fins on it under the seat post behind the batteries ******* to the frame. i can bypass the micro-controller and connect one 12 volt battery directly to motor and runs full speed. somehow it is wired with 2 - 12 volt batteries in series to give 24 volts and them the processor cuts back down to 12 volts to run the motor. not sure why this is engineered this way? still working the problem. what sucks so far is that the micro controller is encased in resin so it is virtually non repairable.
* Update added.
Found these wiring harness for sale online scooter stores and on ebay. I replaced mine with some intermediate level adapting the harness to my model scooter and this includes some soldering and wire splicing changing power connector heads off old harnedd to new harness to fit bike. Works great.

How can i know if my voltage regulator is working, Im not getting any of my lights to work


quick check is to remove a battery cable while the motor's running. If the motor stays running when you pull off the battery cable, the charging system is functioning properly, if it dies then there is a problem with the charging system. Don't leave it off long, as this test is stressful to the circuit. You can test the voltage regulator by putting a volt meter across the battery posts to verify voltage. A fully charged 12 Volt battery should show slightly above 12 volts DC. With the engine running and the volt meter hooked to the battery, the charging system should be showing around 13.8 volts DC.

Voltage to evap fan 94v not working runs slow @ 120v


Hi, I deal with evaporator motors on a day to day basis.If the motor is running but not up to full speed, the inner windings of the motor are going out. If the motor runs as you say, is it getting only 94 volts to it? If this is the case, check the incoming voltage to the unit itself. Check to see on the schematics what is between the motor where you may be loosing your voltage. Defrost thermostat, or timer. Check power to the timer first and get back to me. The defrost thermostat supplies power to the fan when the evaporator temperature gets cold enough and the contacts will close and send power to one side of the motor. If it is going bad, it will cause you to loose part or all of the voltage. If you have a meter, check this. It is round and sealed with 2 terminals on it. If it is cold enough, you can check the leads to ground and see if you are getting less then 120 volts coming out the motor side. If so, replace the thermostat. Please keep me posted.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7
PS Be safe around electricity. Also, this defrost stat snaps around a evap. line.
