Question about Whirlpool GC5SHEXNS Side by Side Refrigerator
Like others that have posted, I noticed the post between the doors was very hot. Found the condensor fan not running and the coils very dirty. The fan started with a little boost. I lubricated both bearings and the fan spins freely when unplugged. When I plugged it back in the condenser fan started running, however the fan doesn't seem to bee turrning very fast. I have never seen the fan run and don't know how fast it should turn. Is it possible that the motor is bad and not running fast enough. By the way, the door post is still hot. Not as hot as before but still hotter than it should be. I know that the heat is due to the freon loop to reduce condensate, but for some reason my heat exchange is lacking and as a result there is too uch heat in the freon loop. Any help would be appreciated.
I agree with ssclifford. That is what I did with mine and the problem is fixed. I ordered my motor from parts.com. Get the part # of your motor from the motor itself. Mine was not the exact model that I replaced and I first thought they sent the wrong motor. But it worked. They know what they were doing.
