Question about GE Hotpoint Top-Freezer Refrigerator
I Have a 2 yr old ge refrigerator that wasn't cooling properly. I took the back cover off & noticed the compressor was extremely hot & the condenser fan wasn't running. I disconnected the fan motor lead connector & checked for voltage...13.67vdc between white & red & the same reading between white & pink....the motor is rated at 11.5vdc & the tech sheet indicated 12vdc from the motherboard....I ordered this over priced ($200.00)!!! motor twice now....the 1st one I replaced didn't work.....so I returned it as "faulty" only to have the second not function either which leads me to believe??????? Can you help????
Gee seems to me if your are getting the proper voltage witch you say you are sounds to me like a bad condensor fan motor. is the compressor running, maybe shut off because it was to hot.and you are right the motor voltage is from the board. we have had alot of mother board failures on the ge line. but that would be the problem if you were not getting power to the motor.on some models the power comes from the relay /overload hooked to the compressor. if the compressor doesnt come on and you hear a clicking from it every few minutes then you could have a bad
overload and relay that is mounted to the compressor.if thats all good then id say order another motor.
