Question about GE GSS25LGM Side by Side Refrigerator
Whirlpool 3VET19ZK 2 door 560Liter (19.7Cu Ft) frost free refrigerator bought in 1994.
Freezer is at 5 degF and the food section hovers around 45degF and the outside side walls at the divider hot to the touch all the time. I checked the panel behind the freezer, no ice build up. Fan is working fine. When I put my hand in front of the vent in the food section, I don't feel any cold air blowing in.
What is the likely problem and how can it be fixed?
All advice and help appreciated.
Hi, I have been in the refrigeration business for over 15 years. I also own a Whirlpool friege with the exact same problem.
a. The condensor fan HAS to work. That fan is not to cool the compressor, it is in place to cool the condensor. If your condensor fan does not work, your compressor may trip.
b. Those emerson fans make a racket because the bearings wear out very quickly. Actually, the bearing does not wear out, the shaft wears out.
c. You can fix this by either fitting a small fan to cool the condensor OR
d. You can buy a similar motor from Whirlpool but they are VERY expensive OR
e. You can buy a similar motor from Micro Instrument Company, 8, Industrial Area Ambala Cantonement, Ambala 133001, India and turn the fan to fit in the space.
