Question about Frigidaire FRS3R5EMB Side by Side Refrigerator

Frigidaire side by side model #FRS6R5ESBC

I am replacing the fan blade on the motor next to the condensor. I am looking for information on which way the fan should spin. Currently it looks like its spinning counterclockwise, but I'm getting conflicting information whether this is correct or not. This is pulling air from the coils under the freezer out towards the compressor. Is this correct?

Fan rotation is determined by the motor direction of rotation. Cool air should pass over the compressor then over the condenser. Look from the motor end for the direction of rotation. Drive to driven. Motor is the drive and fan blade is the driven.

Air is cold. Compressor outside works. The condensor will run for a little while, then shut off while compressor is still running.


Outdoor condensing fan motor has stopped running. This problem could be caused by a bad motor run capacitor. purchase a new capacitor. If your motor capacitor is not the problem, then more than likely you need a new motor. Is the fan blade tight, stiff or hard to turn? If the fan blade is hard to turn then you probably need a new motor.bobicehouse_96.jpg

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..

look on the side of the motor it will have a wiring diagram your fan supplies voltage to the capacitor its self so two of your wires go to the capacitor not just one. good luck

When you replacd the motor if you used the factory stamped sheetmetal nut, you will have this situation, rplace the factory sheetmetal nut with a 1/4-20 standard nut and loctite on the threads and this will solve your problem.

The divider is overhot


Greetings,

I can tell you this..its most likely the condensor fan motor has stopped turning. it could have something stuck between the blades so remove back cover and find your fan motor..It will have a 5" fan blade on it. this is where you'll look for something between the blades. If nothing there. Be careful and spin the fan blade to see if it will start..If it does..It will most likely fail and you'll need a new motor. If you have a portable window fan or something like it...Have the fan blowing towards the compressor and leave it behind the refrigerator to keep air blowing and this will make your refrigerator freeze and cool...until you get a motor

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.

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.

The condensor fan motor has failed. For now remove the back panel of the refrig and make sure that the blade hasnt fallen off the motor. If the motor is bad put  a fan back there so the compressor wont fail next.
