Question about Refrigerators

Dont mean to butt in here but your refrig probably has a ECM (electronic contolled motor) which means it has a tiny computer inside it....these motors are plastic and have a plastic blade. these are a little more energy efficient and it helps the manuf get bettter energy star ratings...however...they do from time to time decide not to start every time that the unit comes on...this cause excessive heat and freon pressure to be exerted on the compressor and its electricals... The replacement motor is just the old style shade pole (magnets) motor...not quite as quiet or efficient but wayyyy more reliable. Order a replacement blade seperately from the blade/motor kit since the blade in the kit is always destroyed by the motor inside the box.

Don't worry vinny that's called a post loop part of the condenser coils run up through there and they keep it dry so your door gaskets don't get wet and moldy no problem dont forget my 4 boxes please thats a fixya
