What did you need to know? If it fell out it just pushes back in. Press it in with your thumbs. If you want to replace it its very easy to change. Just pull out the old one and put the new one against the door and push it back into the tracks.

How to replace the condensor fan on GE Mod.gdl20kcsabs --bottom freezer

How To Replace the Condenser Fan The condenser fan is located behind the refrigerator. It may be necessary to remove an access panel to reach it.
If the fan blade is damaged, it can be removed from the fan motor and replaced separately.
Caution:Please read our safety information before attempting any testing or repairs.
cautiontri.gif Before replacing the condenser fan, unplug the refrigerator to avoid an electrical shock hazard.

The fan motor is held in place with screws and possibly a mounting bracket. Remove the bracket and the screws and pull the motor back away from the housing.
The fan motor is connected by two or three wires. Label the wire placement on the motor before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected to the terminals with slip-on connectors or a plug. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.

Remove the fan blade from the old motor and install it onto the new motor. Connect the wires to the new motor and install the motor into the bracket or housing. Make certain that all of the screws are tightened securely.
Replace the access cover (if any) and plug in the refrigerator.

Food is unthawing


The cause of this is the evaporator thermister. Sounds daunting, doesn't it? It's not. See? This is an electronic component that connects to the main computer and is used to monitor the temperature of the evaporator during the defrost cycle. When it fails, the main computer simply doesn't go into its' defrost cycle. Then you'll see frost build up on the rear panel inside the freezer, your beer compartment will get warm and the fan inside the freezer will run constantly (ahhh!).

The repair is cheap. Seriously cheap (and easy, too!) It'll take me longer to type out the repair thn it would if I'd actually DONE the repair (I type slow). Take a gander at the full size diagram of your fridge's evaporator (freezer) section here. You'll be replacing # 243... it's located at the top of the coils on the left.

You'll need;
Phillips screwdriver
A towel (maybe)
Hair dryer
Wire cutters
Wire strippers
2 Wire nuts (small blue ones) <--- all of this is found at a local hardware store (except for the towel. Unless it's a "shop" towel)

Pull all the frozen stuff outta the freezer and remove the shelves and the basket at the bottom. Now remove the back panel. You'll probably see a huge block of ice now. Your jaw will most likely drop and you'll feel like freaking out..... don't. Grab the hair dryer and melt all of that outta there. (NOTE---> WHEN DOING THIS, KEEP THE DRYER IN MOTION. IF YOU DON'T, YOU RISK WARPING THE PLASTIC INNER LINER)

Now that all the frost is gone, look at the top left of the aluminum coils. You'll see the thermister clipped to one of the tubes (it's the only thing there that has 2 white wires going to it). Remember where it's clipped, then unclip it. Cut the wires close to the base of the thermister, keep the clip. Now seperate the 2 white wires and strip them back about 3/8". Now take your new thermister and install it.

Take one of your newly stripped wires and twist it together to one of the new thermister wires and cap it off with one of the blue wire nuts. Do the same with the next wire. Now take the clip that you saved from the old thermister and place it on the new one and clip it back onto the same tube the old thermister came from.

All you gotta do now is rebuild it all.

Please don't forget to rate this solution as "FixYa". OK?

Does not freeze items / ice build up on the back wall

Your defrost heater is probably gone. Or you could have a bad thermister. This is not a job for the ordinary householder. Get a pro. This ice box has a computer board that relys on thermisters to report frost buildup and proper defrost proceedure.

Viking professional 30 inch, sparking problem

If you have replaced the spark module with the new, blue PA020041 Tytronics 0+4 spark module, the physical positions of the leads that go to the burner igniters are reversed compared to the positions on the old, white module. Make sure that the switch wire for the burner and the position of the spark wire both go to the same burner! The positions are marked on the white label with green lettering.

Maybe but there is also a thermister in the defrost system that might be bad. The thermister is a small, white, barrell shape and is as big around as a pencil, It has 2 wires going in it and is attached to the top of the coils in the freezer.
