Can try a little oil, if you can see the bushings on
the motor

Have to remove the fan, to get to the front one

That will work a couple months, then it's off the
the recycle center for the fan

    Oil makes run, but only for a few days - what is causing the binding? I would think that "wear" would loosen things - not bind them tighter.

    The bushings wear & dry up The oiling only helps for awhile The motor is shot,the windings are bad & the fan needs to be replaced

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

Air is cold. Compressor outside works. The condensor will run for a little while, then shut off while compressor is still running.


Outdoor condensing fan motor has stopped running. This problem could be caused by a bad motor run capacitor. purchase a new capacitor. If your motor capacitor is not the problem, then more than likely you need a new motor. Is the fan blade tight, stiff or hard to turn? If the fan blade is hard to turn then you probably need a new motor.bobicehouse_96.jpg

My air conditioner tries to turn on, air comes out of vents but isn't cold, and outside the blades on the AC unit are not spinning. I hear a noise when it tries to turn on but they don't start...

Have an expensive Hunter indoor/outdoor pedestal Fan that stopped working. It just "hums" and does not turn. Please help.


With the fan UNPLUGGED, try to spin the fan blade with a pencil or something that will fit through the blade cage.

If the blade spins easily, there is an electronic problem (control or motor) that must be serviced.

If the fan blade is stuck or very hard to move, the shaft and bearing are probably dirty and need to be cleaned. You can temporarily fix this with a tiny amount (a drop) of WD-40 applied to the shaft where it enters the motor. Spin the blade manually to work the oil into the bearing. If the motor spins freely, the dirty bearing condition is verified. To properly clean the shaft and bearings, the motor must be disassembled.

How do I remove the fan from an electrolux EGC652 oven


Hello,
The model no. does not seem correct.but it seems as if the hole in the fan blade which is normally D shaped has worn round.The thread on the shaft is Left handed and you will need to undo by turning clockwise. If you can get a vice grips at the back of the blade to hold the shaft then try again,or you will need to get into the back casing and try jamming the shaft at the motor housing you may need some help.Then if that works you will need to undo the 3 bolts holding the Motor body to the rear casing.The new fan would normally come with new bolts,blade and nut.To tighten fan blade nut use a 10mm socket hold the fan blade and tighten anticlockwise.Hope this is helpful.

Good luck.

One fan blade stopped working and is hot to touch


The motor is 'locked up' that's where the heat is coming from. It may have a bad bushing or something is jammed. Give it a good look over you may see it. Does the blade feel hard to turn?

Probably requires cleaning- take the grille off, pull the blade free (most pull straight out- some have a pin/socket deal right behind the blades that need to be removed first) and clean out any gunk you may find inside. Be sure to unplug it first. before replacing the blade, turn the shaft with your hands to see how it moves; you might want to grease it with an electricity friendly lube of your choice. If it's still hard to turn, it may just be this fans time; box fans are cheap, and made cheap, and the wear-and-tear adds up.
