SOURCE: Compressor fan motor does not

you will need to see if you are receiving you voltage to the contactor, if not then there should be a breaker or fuse next to your unit outside. the fan should engage, if the contactor is pulled in then check for voltage to the fan, it should be a black and white wire on t1 and t3, if the voltage is there then the 5mfd capacitor is bad(check with meter, if you have a meter that does that) or the fan motor is bad. on the fan motor there is a diagram with the HP,RPM,Phase, and voltage. you can either get one locally or search eBay for one. Just make sure you get a capacitor with the new motor that is rated the same, most are 5mfd but some are 7.5mfd. Hope this helps Tim

Compressor fan on ZISS480DRBS moving slow


Likely a bad capacitor. Turn off the power and use a stick or long screw driver to spin the blade. If blade spins freely and is not binding up then bearings and motor most likely ok. Capacitor is inside panel, with power off you can at least inspect. If swollen or oily definitely bad.

Lennox XC21 (7 yrs old) compressor motor does not turn fan blades


Check the motor by hand to see if it turns freely, if it does then the issue is the motor controller not being able to sense where the motor is. Check for 240 Volts on the red wires and then check for 24 volts dc between black and blue and black and yellow.

Why would evap fan running slow


If u turn the fan by hand and it turn then u need a new fan, and i think u are mixing up the fans, the fan inside the refrigerator would be the evaporator fan if that was broken then your compressor would be cold, the fan inside the compressor section would be the condenser fan, if that was defective then your compressor would be hot causing the compressor to short cycle. change the fan and clean your condenser coil and your problem should be gone,

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..

I turn on the fan in the bathroom and as the fan gains speed, I hear a clicking sound as it the fan blades were hitting something, and it sounded like it was solid. So I took off the grille and the light...


Are you tightening the grill to the point that it is pulling itself up to touch the fan or is it pulling something down to touch the fan? I would take the grill off and with the fan running, pull and push on the points that hold the grill in place and see if that action causes the fan to click. If it does, you need to trouble shoot from there. If not, an exorcisim might be in order.

Was vacuuming coils/bottom of fridge and my brush hit the fan and now fan is not spinning. Does the fan always spin or only when called for??? HELP HELP


Hi,
If the compressor...the black can in the back...is running then the fan should be running...
if it is not running when it should be, check the fan baldes, you may have bent one or more of the blades and now the fan is stuck because it cannot turn...
If so, just bend the fan blades back stright so they do not hit anything...

Fan whining and blades not going


Sounds like your compressor outside is frozen up or (locked up) the smell is outside correct? it could also be your fan also in your condensor unit outside the easiest way is to listen for fluid movement (if your freon is moving then your compressor is working and you need to lean toward a fan motor. check to see if you can move the fan blades in the compressor (outside ) if the problem is in the house then approach in the same way with the power to the unit turned off only If you cannot turn it most likely fan motor replacement is in order, and pressure sensors are not letting your condensor run. theres a few things to try hope i have helped .Honestly it probably would not hurt to let a service man look at it anyway, but this way at least you're a little wiser chris
