Question about White Mountain Freezer F69206-X 6 quart Electric Ice Cream Freezer

1 Answer

Paddle won't spin

At the end of my last freeze, the motor started spinning as if the gears were stripped. I plugged the unit in an hour later. the square gear turned, but the inner gear that turns the paddle did not. Is this an easy fix, or is this something that a technition needs to fix. The freezer is only 2 years old, and has less than 10 freezes.

I have a White Moutain freezer motor that is two years old and had the same problem as yours. During my last batch of ice cream the motor was spinning but the beater wasn't turning. I removed the motor and the square drive was spinning but I could stop it with my finger, there was no power like a gear or clutch was shot. I called the 1-800 number on the motor and they said they would send me a new motor. I didn't need to show a receipt or anything. All they wanted me to do was return the broken motor and they even supplied paid postage. I recomend you call them and ask for a new motor.

What can I do? My Woods upright freezer model F17WCE has stopped freezing. It is still cold, but not cold enough freeze.


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

How do you know you fully defrosted the freezer? You have a defrost timer and heater to do that. Unplugging your unit for a few hours may not be enough.

You need to remove the lower back wall cover. There are several screws holding it on and the rubber molding around it easily pulls out.

Up plug your unit and remove the lower back cover.

1.) Frozen Drain - Your unit goes through a defrost cycle every 8-10 hours. During the time your freezer shuts down for 20-30 minutes except for your light. If you have a frozen drain, the condensate builds up behind the lower back wall until the cooling(evaporator) coils become plugged up and you do not get any air flow. You may even have a solid block of ice.
Repair: Using a hair dryer (DO NOT Use Metal Objects. You may damage the coils.) slowly defrost the coils. This will take 2-3 hours.

2.) Cooling (Evaporator) Fan Failure - Assume the coils are not iced up. Is your evaporator fan running?

Part #: 3-60336-001 Cost: $115.00
Check it out: With a multi-meter set to the lowest Ohms (Omega Symbol). Is the motor humming, Then it is bad and needs to get replaced.
Unplug the unit. Disconnect the motor. Put one meter lead in one connector socket and the other lead in the other motor sock. You should get a reading of "0" Ohms if the motor is good. Anything else the motor is bad and need to be replaced.

3.) Defrost Timer - Pull your unit out to access the lower back. With your unit plugged in, take a small flat head screw driver, insert it into the slot on the time. Turning clockwise one turn at a time, until the freezer shuts off. If you have turned one full cycle, then you have a bad timer.
Ok. The unit shut down except for the light. Observe the metal bar below your cooling coil. Is it hot? If not then you may have a bad defrost heater. Lets check it out - Unplug your unit. Once again with your multi-meter set on the lowest Ohms, disconnect each ends of the wire connectors. Be careful not to touch the fins on the cooling coil. They are razor sharp. The connector are hard to pull apart. Put one meter lead in one connector and the other meter lead into the other connector. If you do not get a Ohm reading between 50-250, then you have a bad defrost heater.

This is a glass tube with a spring in it. If it is burner or the spring is broken then you have a bad defrost heater.

4.) Refrigerant Leak or Obstruction - With the unit plugged in. Lay the lover cover the cooling coils. Close the door and wait 30 minutes. Remove the cover. Do all of the coils have a nice frost pattern? Is there a block of ice in the upper right hand corner of the cooling coil. If so you either have a refrigerant leak or an obstruction. In this case the repair will cost you $450.00-$500.00.

5.) If all of the above is good, then you may have a Bi-mel problem. In the upper right hand corner of your cooling coil there is a thermostat. This controls the temperature and compressor start-up. This may explode in the back. Check to see if it is intacted.

5.) Bad thermostat - These can not be checked for failure. If you have check all of the above this may be your problem.

I have had my freezer for a couple of years and probably only used it 6 times. The motor makles a roaring noise and sparks are coming out of it? Any idea what it might be. I checke the price of a new...


My 6 qt electric was making noise and finally quit spinning. I pulled it apart and the change gear (gear reducer) was wallowed out. This meant the gear rocked away from the motor's drive gear. I called White Mountain to see if I could get a replacement gear and they said I'd voided the warranty because I took the 3 screws out to pull apart. Basically, they are using **** gears, know it, and doing the song and dance to not have to replace. So, I've got a motor that works, housing, and one bad gear that makes the whole unit worthless.

Fan on freezer won't com on but freezes food on


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
There are 12 midelos that fall under the model number you passed. I will cite EV171NYMQ05 as a reference model number via this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5140769

The freezer fan should be on anytime the compressor is on. If there is an ice block built up on the evaporator coils it can lock the fan blade in place via the ice build up. Additionally... if the fan motor bearings are dry or coated with sludge this too can prevent the fan motor from operating. The fan motor is item 3 this link: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5140769&diagram_id=28174432#d28174432

Detail views:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/whirlpool-motor-evap-item-number-ap4539455.aspx

To check the can motor all that is required is a simple continuity check across the 2 connector wires. You should read under 480 ohms.

If you discover that the fan blades are encased in ice... do a manual defrost: (be ready to tend to a water mess)
1. By first unplugging the unit and then removing the freezer contents.
2. Direct an external fan into the freezer compartment for just over 2 hours.
3. Make sure the compartement drain funnel is clear of obstructions. Item 11 this link: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5140769&diagram_id=28158051#d28158051

After the 2 hour manual defrost period plug in the unit and test to see if the fan motor is running.
If it is running you may have an automatic defrost problem causing the ice build up. On a freezer the ice build up will start again if there is an automatic defrost problem in 3 - 5 days. Until the automatic defrost problem is corrected you will end up doing the manual defrost routine described above everytime you have improper cooling problems.

Components that can cause the automatic defrosting problems are
1. The defrost timer item 7 this link: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5140769&diagram_id=28257341#d28257341 Because it is not cycling or stuck in one position.
2. The defrost bi-metal thermostat item 9 above link (stuck closed)
3. The defrost heating element item 5 above link. (open)
And of course internal wiring....

Check the fan motor for continuity... if you attempt to lubricate it which is very difficult on this fan motor make sure you use paraffin based "Turbine oil" and not a regular household or automotive oil. Using any other oil will cause the fan to stop working in as little as 30 days.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

You can try and oil it if it has oilers on it...... or try and spray some WD40 right where the shaft comes out of the motor....If you can't get the motor to start then you may have to unload the freezer if you can't find a new motor to replace the bad one. good luck.....

Both Lights flashing and fridge not getting cold


I turned the fridge and freezer off using the circular dials, I then turned the unit off at the mains. Left it for a few minutes and then turned the power back on. I then turned the circular dials to "max" and then depressed the super cool and super freeze buttons to turn this facility on. This time they came on normally (not flashing) and no alarm sounded. The fridge and freezer then started to get cold. Once the unit had been running for several hours I then turned the dials to the 3/4 mark and depressed the super cool and super freeze buttons again to turn them off. Over night the fridge and the freezer appear to be working properly so I hope that my problem is solved. Maybe the unit just needed to "settle" before being switched on?

Hoshizaki Flaker Gear Motor Part


I expereinced the same problem and the only solution I could come up with was to have the gear fabricated. I made a few fro backup. I haven't used any in the two years since i fixed mine. I can sell you a replacement gear or you can send me the gear box and I will install the new gear for you. This same gear box is used in a number of Hoshizaki flakers. Typically symptoms are noisy gear box and jerky auger, or motor spinning but no Auger rotation. Cause is typically scaling/ calcium build up in the evaporator tube. The extra torque stips the gear.

Maytag upright freezer model MQU1556AEW


I experienced the same problem last week with my freezer. Apparently the change in temperature during defrosting allows the blade locking mechanism to slide on the motor shaft during the spinning operation. The blade pulls itself along the shaft until it comes in contact with the motor mounting bolt. If your freezer just stops getting super cold, but remains cool and you don't hear the fan spinning, remove the inside back panel and check the fan blades for freedom of movement. I almost disposed of the freezer this past week but decided to make one last check of the mechanisms.
