I do believe you will find the Mother Board is the cause of your problem. I also believe your original motor was ok. The motor runs on DC voltage. There are 3 wires to the motor. The red wire is a sensor wire. The other 2 wires should provide 12 to 13 or so volts DC to the motor. If it is not the mother board is bad.
I hope I helped. supertechks

Poured a beer and noticed temperature reading of 56F. Compressor not running. Notice a periodic clicking sound.


The clicking sound is the compressor overload tripping out and resetting. For whatever reason, bad capacitor, bad relay or locked up compressor....the compressor is not starting. Of course it could also be overheated due to a defective condensor fan motor or extremely blocked condensor coil.

How soon after replacing the condensor fan, is it supposed to kick on?


Condensor fan should start when the compressor starts. If the condensor is hot at top and bottom, turn the refrig off and check the fan for power, should spin freely by finger, and coast to a stop.
Good Luck,
Bill

Fan moves slowly ,compressor still hot even with a portable fan blowing on condensor ,but temps are back to normal. What would cause the fan to blow slowly and there is no obsructions


Ralph78yanks,
Your condenser fan (fan motor by compressor) is a variable speed and controlled by a computer board and compressor speed. If the fan motor slows down and the compressor is running in high, the unit can over heat and cause temperature issues in refrigerator sections. GE has a program which can see actual fan RPMs of motor. As I research this incomplete model number (7 possible different models) I see they all use the same fan motor Part# WR60X10209, this is a DC motor. Make sure you fan has not melted also. The heat from the compressor can melt the should or blade when this motor fails. I hope this information helps you..

Think our refridgerator motor went smell of smoke but is still cool will it burn


Check to see if your condensor fan motor is running, should be behind the refrigerator backing plate and close to your compressor. Usually caused by a very dirty condensor unit. You have to vacuum, brush or blow out the condensor coils at least once a year to prevent overheating damage and to save 100.00 to 300.00 a year in electricity. If this is not the problem then let me know if the smell is coming from inside the freezer, refer section, or underneath.

I had the same problem with my 2630. Unplugged the power cord and pulled the small panel off on the rear of the unit. The fan was working. I noticed a lot of dust built up on the condensor- the cooling fins were full of it. I took my small shop vac and cleaned off all that I could on the the surface of the condensor. Thought I'd try blowing it out in case I missed any in the inner part of the condensor. Reversed the hose on the shop vac so it would blow air and turned it on. Dust blew everywhere! Just vacuuming it out wasn't enough. No more problems with the heat- that seems to have cleaned it out so that the fan can now pull air across the condensor to properly cool it down. Hope this helps.

Subzero 630 hot door jamb


If the door jambs are hot, that is either a dirty condensor or a dead condensor fan motor. Make sure the condensor is vacuumed and check to see if the condensor fan is spinning. It should be running anytime either compressor is on. You can clear the service light by holdint the "alarm: button for 15 seconds or turning the unit off and then on again.

Hot to the touch


Kathy, you probably have a condensor fan that failed. Remove the lower back panel behind the refrigerator. You will see the condensor, condensor fan and compressor. The condensor fan should be running any time the compressor is running. You might have something stopping the fan blades or the motor might be going bad itself. What you are describing is a classic example of a failed condensor fan motor. Catriver.
