Question about LG Refrigerators
I purchased this LG two years ago. I heard some squeaking from behind. It became nosier and now squeals. I can see the fan from the side. The fan isn't facing toward to exterior, but toward to coils. I vaccumed the dust, used a blowdryer to blow the dust. I sprayed a lubricant on the rod going to the fan. I even took a bendable straw and sprayed lubricant to the middle of the fan which is impossible to see. It helped just a tiny bit and now its just non stop. It's like Chinese Water Torture in our house. I don't even see a way to take the fan off to clean it. Please help!
These fans have DC brushless motors, the stator is one piece with a disc in the middle. When these fans start to wear out the shaft begins to wobble, this distorts the the rotation of the shaft. This makes the stator disc touch the communtator.Generating the squealing that you are experiencing. But this fan might not be the problem. The freezer fan is behind the rear panel of the freezer draw. It is very hard to detect this problem because the fan spins but not fast enough to circulete the chilled air thru the freezer and refrigerator.
