Question about Kenmore 56539 / 56532 / 5653 / 656534 Side by Side Refrigerator
The dividing wall between the fridge and freezer is very hot to the touch.
No clarification necessary. The problem is most definitely the condenser motor. Here is a full diagram of the "unit compartment"... the part you're looking at is number 24. Maybe you have a local part house, if you do just call them and ask for a part number W10124096. Or you can plug that number into a search engine and go price shopping (there's a $10.50 price difference between Sears and RepairClinic, for instance)
Anyway, the repair is straight forward. Roll the fridge out and UNPLUG IT. Remove the lower rear panel to expose the unit compartment. Now all you have to do is use a 1/4" socket and remove the motor from its' bracket (just slip the fan blade off the end of the shaft). Your new motor comes with instructions... just follow them and button everything back up! It's a breeze. Total job time = ~ 30 minutes.
Please remember to rate this solution as "FixYa', OK? My "guru" rating is counting on you.
