Question about GE Profile PFS22SBSS Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator
You may be able to just lubricate your condenser fan. There is a lubricant called "Zoom Spout" that is a paraffin based oil that you should use to do the lubrication. The oil is available at most appliance parts sources and usually at the Sears parts service counter. It is less than $3.00. You need to oil then wipe the armature shaft clean by gently tugging on the fan to lift it and wipe again and then re-oil the shaft front and rear of the condenser fan motor. The fan bearings get dirty and cause the fan to run slow. Any other type of oil will work for 30 days or less and then it will start running slow again. Just use the correct lubricating oil the first time and save yourself some money and time in the future.
Some of the condenser fan motors you can remove the bearing mounting hardware and slide the bearing up on the fan motor shaft to allow for cleaning the gunk off of the shaft that is causing the bearing drag. If you do take it apart note the bearing mount positions BEFORE you take them apart. I usually scribe one side of each bearing mount in a different place so that you do not install them backward.
Thanks for using FixYa.
Remember (Zoom-Spout oiler and there is a tube that pulls out of the oiler for use. Do not pull it out all the way!)
