    WR9X480 has black wire loop attached to terminal#1 and black wire from inside timer attached to terminal #3. Do I leave these wires as is and connect the color coded wires to the terminals or do I remove the black wires first? Do I detach the black wire black wire from Terminal #3 and use it as the ground?

IT COULD BE A JUMPER FOR THE DEFROST BI-METAL OR A
WIRE USED FOR DIAGNOSTICS OF SOME KIND. IF THERE ISN'T ANYTHING AROUND TO PLUG IT INTO, I WOULDN'T BE CONCERNED. IF THE REFRIGERATOR DOESN'T OPERATE PROPERLY LATER ON, THAT MIGHT BE ONE PLACE I WOULD REVISIT.

Heil outside fan motor 3 wire rd/blk/br new dayton motor 4 wire blk /br /purpule /brown with white strip Need help on wiring


Hi, the new motor takes its own capacitor to run it. This is what the 2- brown wires are for, one will have a white stripe. You will need to but a seperate run capacitor for this motor, a 5 uf, 7.5, or what ever it calls for. they should have told you when you bought the motor. It will have to spade connectors on it where the brown wires connect alone. Use the dual capacitor if that is what you have for the other 220 volt wires.Black and purple will be your 2 hot wires.You can connect either one to the old capacitor on the fan terminal and the other to the load side of the contactor, so when the contactor closes it will energize the motor.Or, take both the black and the purple wires and to the load side ( outlet side ) of the contactor, connect one to one side and the other to the other side. The line side is where your 2 hot wires that connect to the contactor from the incoming wires from the electrical box, you want to be on the other end. I would connect the black to the contactor load side and purple to the old capacitor as long as the old wiring is still on it as it has to be fed by a hot wire from the contactor. Each wire, blk, and purple has to have 120 volts to each one and you can get this a couple of ways. The contactor has several terminals that are not used and if you wire them on the outlet side, they will only be energized when the contactor is closed on a call from the stat, very easy to do. You will have to get a coulple of crimp on connectors to put on the ends of the wires, but the brown ones should already have them for this capacitor. Do not try to put the brown wires on the old run capacitor as you will burn out the new motor! Go get the small run cap for these 2 wires for about $10. I know that you can do this wiring change just remember the blk is hot 120, and purple is hot 120, = 240.volts. If you have removed all of the wires from the old capacitor, then use the contactor to connect to. The compressor wires must stay on the old run cap on the hermetic side and this old cap. must be fed by a hot wire from the contactor to the common terminal, that is marked with a C..If you look at the new motor diagram, it will show you also. Please dont forget to rate me as I know you will be kind, and I will check in on you to see how you are doing. Get this capacitor and it will run. This is a must!! Please keep me posted.

GE GSH22KGM Frig not defrosting again


I would suggest replacing the # 4 thermistor , which is a 1 " long white piece with 2 white wires attached , clipped to the top of the coils . This thermistor , tells the main control board , the temperature of the coils and the board decides what to do next , such as defrost , end defrost cycle . Also , replace the defrost thermostat , the 1 inch cylinder with 2 wires going to it , which is also clipped onto the coils . This thermostat , cuts the heater off when it reaches a certain temperature , to keep the food from defrosting . It may also help , to replace the # 5 thermistor , which is below the coils , slid into a housing , with 2 white wires going to it also . This thermistor , tells the board , the actual freezer temp , so the compressor will cycle off/on , and the fan speed also . All 3 parts , are relatively not expensive . Be sure to get wire connectors because they do not come with these parts .

There should be a wiring diagram on the side of the new motor.
The brown and the brown w/ white go to the new capacitor you should have bought with the motor.
The black and white go to your L1 & L2 power source. The remaining wires must be capped off.

Ge side by side profile. freezer works fine, all


Hi!

First of all you need to clean the coils (condenser coils under the unit or evaporator coils inside the freezer). The coils inside could be iced over because of failure of defrost system. Now check that the condenser fan under the fridge is working properly. Check that the fan in the freezer work which pulls cold air from the coils inside freezer and blows it to the fridge side. Are the temperature control knobs in the fridge adjusted correctly? It actually just opens a vent to let more or less cold air in from the freezer. It takes a while for the ice to build up in the freezer enough to affect the cooling.

My first guess would be the defrost timer. You can manually turn it to engage the defrost cycle and observe whether or not the defrost heaters come on. Now use a hair dryer to speed up melting the ice when there is lots of ice buildup. Most timers are 24 hour timers. It will turn the defroster on every 6 or maybe 12 hours depending on the model.

Before testing the defrost heater, unplug the refrigerator to avoid an electrical shock hazard.

The defrost heater is usually located at the back of a side by side freezer or under the floor of a top freezer. It will be necessary to remove obstructions such as the contents of the freezer, freezer shelves, icemaker and the inside rear or bottom panel of the freezer.

The heater is connected by two wires. The wires are connected with slip on connectors. 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.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

This model does not have a defrost timer. It has a motherboard. You must jump out the plug to the main board to test the defrost circuit. In order to do this take the cover off of the main board, find the three wire connector on the base of the main board, connecter is normally blue in color. On the board itself it will identify termials as line, defrost, and compressor. To test you must create a jumper wire.Install the jumper in the plug terminals identified as line and defrost.This will turn the defrost heater on. If the heater does not come on, look for a defective heater or a defrost thermostat(mounted on the top of the evaporator). If the heater does come on replace the thermister(located on top of evap, white in color and has two white wires part#WR55x10025)
