Kenmore 795.7130 bottom freezer model, loud noise when fan kicks on. from what I have read it is the evaporator fan. how difficult to change?


We had a problem with a loud noise when the motor turned on. Didn't know what it was but after a week or two, the noise went away and the Refrigerator was no longer cold (even though the freezer was fine). At this point, instead of temperatures showing inside the refrigerator read out, there was an error code: ER FF. The circulator motor was no longer working. This I read was due to an ice build up which binded the motor. We shut off the unit for 24 hours to defrost it and it worked fine after that. Do this before calling a repair man for service.

I own a Duracraft commercial grade high velocity fan, model DV-518. When I turned it on, the blades started to turn. Then there was a loud click and a small smell. I quickly turned the switch off. When...


Hi, I had the same pop noise and turned off immediately. So my question is, where is the capacitor, in the switch assembly or inside the motor?

Motor hums but fan blades will not turn


If motor hums and does not spin, then motor has gone bad.
As motors get older, the motor begin to slow down.
Motors are designed to pull-in cool air across spinning coils inside the rotor.
Once the motor slows down, the motor no longer gets cool air, so it gets hotter, and then overheats, and then rotor no longer spins.
In years past, motors were taken to local electric shop for rewinding Then the motor went back into service.
Today, the motor is thrown in the landfill unless recycled at local scrap metal dealer.
It's a waste that we no longer have small repai9r shops to fix consumer goods like fans, and instead the economy causes us to import another motor because it's cheaper.

I cleaned my Flair air purifier, The motor turns on but not the fan even after lubricating the fan shaft and giving the fan blades a little push. Any suggestions on how to get this going?


The Flair is no longer manufactured nor serviced by EcoQuest, and the company is now Vollara. If what you're hearing is the fan motor (there is no other motor associated with this machine), it might mean that either it's totally seized up, or that the oil just has not penetrated deeply enough.
1) Turn the machine over and remove the large screw in the bottom. The chassis will then slide out (I assume you've already done this in order to reach the fan shaft.)
2) Firmly pull on the fan blades near the center in order to pull them free of the shaft.
3) Turn the chassis on its back, so the fan shaft points up. Drip a small amount of lightweight oil (sewing machine, hair clipper, 3-in-1) on the shaft and turn it manually to work the oil down the shaft. Continue doing this if you feel the shaft loosening up.
4) Set the chassis upright, tilt it forward, and drip a small amount of oil on the rear opening to the fan shaft. Continue manually turning the shaft and tilting the machine to work the oil in.
5) Replace the fan blades and turn on the machine, depressing the safety switch manually, to see if the fan will begin to turn.
If it won't turn, it might mean that the fan motor is entirely seized up. You may be able to find a local small appliance repair person who could replace that motor.
Your other option is to call Vollara customer service at 800-989-2299 and ask them to explain your options. Use #16618 if you need a dealer referral number.

Fan quitting on unit


Maybe the room is dry enough so the humidity sensor is turning it off?

If not, maybe the thermisensor(fuse) on the fan motor is failing?

Lasko fan has stopped ocillating (hoped I spelled that right)


You might also check for a loose wire in where the wiring harness goes to the oscillating motor. I had this problem and one of the wires had pulled out of one of the wire nuts inside a wiring compartment.

Fan


I would advise taking the fan cover off and the blade off of the motor and cleaning it. (Make sure its unplugged when you do this.) Maybe hair and dust has gathered around the motor and the blade. This would make the motor have to work harder, especially if stuff is wound around the motor. Good Luck.

Fan Not Working


Sounds like a motor problem...but not necessarily. Cut power to the unit. Expose the motor assembly. Turn the fan by hand...if it is jammed or hard to turn...replace that motor. Not that? There is likely a motor connector. Get a test light at the hardware store. Disconnect the motor and then probe the wires coming to the connector from the power side (with the power on again) to see if the tester glows. Yes...bad motor. No, find the bad connection. It is possible that this unit uses a multi switch...if that's the case, there will be three wires coming out of it...One is power in...the others go to the light and the fan. Then, the switch will be the culprit. Hope this helps.
