Question about Frigidaire FRS3R5EMB Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Warm refrigerator When I checked the fan I saw that the blade was not connected to the fan motor. The blade is plastic and just slipped back on. There wasn't anything on the rod to hold the blade in place. Is this the way the fan was made. Thanks, bdtchr@msn.com

Yes, the plastic fan blade is only held on by the pressure of the plastic on the metal shaft. if the plastic hole is worn and the fan doesn't fit tight, then you may want to replace the plastic fan.

How to replace the condensor fan on GE Mod.gdl20kcsabs --bottom freezer


How To Replace the Condenser Fan The condenser fan is located behind the refrigerator. It may be necessary to remove an access panel to reach it.
If the fan blade is damaged, it can be removed from the fan motor and replaced separately.
Caution:Please read our safety information before attempting any testing or repairs.
cautiontri.gif Before replacing the condenser fan, unplug the refrigerator to avoid an electrical shock hazard.

The fan motor is held in place with screws and possibly a mounting bracket. Remove the bracket and the screws and pull the motor back away from the housing.
The fan motor is connected by two or three wires. Label the wire placement on the motor before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected to the terminals with slip-on connectors or a plug. 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.


Remove the fan blade from the old motor and install it onto the new motor. Connect the wires to the new motor and install the motor into the bracket or housing. Make certain that all of the screws are tightened securely.
Replace the access cover (if any) and plug in the refrigerator.

The divider wall between the fridge and freezer stays very hot to the touch. Possibly the defrost mechanism is stuck??? Any ideas?


Check the fan which cools the compressor . Sometimes something gets caught in the blade . Also check that the coils at the front bottom are clean . If the motor is not turning and nothing obstructing the fan blade , replace the motor ( condensor motor )

Fridge not cold


you have a fan motor and blade located between the fridge and freezer. What this fan does is regulates the temp of the fridge from the coldness of the freezer. If this fan is out the fridge will be warm. The fan is losacted in the space between the fridge and freezer on the inside near you temp control switch. Look at the top of the fridge on the inside and you will see a set of vents. The fan is located behind these slotted vents. Take care in removing the plastic cover and remove the motor. Take model and serial# to an appliance parts house for proper replacement.

Hope this helped you some

Refrigerator not cool freezer working



Rick,

This is the generic answer. Use the hair dryer (below) and reset the defrost (look for instructions from Sea Breeze)

Most of these units work with the freezer providing all of the cooling and a thermostat in the refrigerator section controlling a fan in the freezer (where the fan directs cold air from the freezer section to the refrigerator section via a duct in the back).

Look at the rear area of the refirgerator and locate a vent. This vent receives cold air from the freezer to the refirgerator. If you feel cold air coming out of this vent, then there may be no problem, just wait a few hours and recheck the refrigerator temperature.

Look at the rear area of the freezer and locate a vent. This vent provides cold air from the freezer to the refirgerator. Shine a bright light into this vent. You should see fan blades (possibly black plastic). If there is ice on the blades, then you have a defrost problem, and look to other posts on this site for how to manually defrost (or reset the automatic defrost). If the fan blades are rotating, then there is probably a blockage in the duct. Direct a hair dryer (warm setting) through the rear freezer vent and check to see if there is very warm air flowing out of the refrigerator vent (which indicates that the duct is not blocked). While using the hair dryer, you may be able to see the fan blades rotating.

If you do not feel warm air flowing out of the refrigerator vent, then run the hair dryer for a few minutes. (this was my problem, I saw no moisture drip from the vent, which led me to believe that it was more of a dry ice buildup, or that the ice was evaporated (desublimed to be technical).

If there is air flow and no ice buildup on the fan, then reset the automatic defrost. If this is not your solution, either the thermostat or the fan motor is the problem.

Hi WR,

Your symptoms scream "failed condenser fan motor!". This old unit is definitely worth the repair (one of the last of the great GE's). Here's the thing, the fan motor for your fridge calls for a #WR60X187 and this one runs about $110.00! There IS another option... part #WX4X988 (and this one costs about $40.00). They are BOTH manufactured by GE and they BOTH have the same RPM. The only difference between the 2 motors is how they hook up electrically.

IF YOU CHOOSE TO REPAIR... UNPLUG YOUR FRIDGE FIRST!

Take a look at this link. This is the motor that is a direct replacement. You'll see 2 thumbnail images... look at the second one. See that black thing at the top? That's the electric connection.

Now look at this link. This is the SAME motor, but with different wiring. All you have to do to install this one is to cut the plastic connector from your original wire harness, strip the wires and wire nut it to the new motor.

By the way, I failed to mention where the motor is located. Clean off all the stuff from on top of the fridge, then roll it out into the kitchen. Now get behind it and remove that cardboard cover there at the bottom. I think your condenser fan motor is on the left side. (hint---> it's the thing with the 6" fan blade mounted to it). When you get to this point, you'll see that the fan is either not spinning or is spinning slowly... either way, ya gotta replace it.

There are only 3 screws mounting the motor to the bracket. Remove those and pull the motor. Remove the fan blade from the old motor and put it on the new one. Then just mount the new motor to the bracket and button everything back up!

(TIP! ---> While you're doing this repair, you should take this opportunity to vacuum all the dust outta the compartment back there.)

If you have any questions just write back.

Freezer fan noise


Remove the freezer panel to access the fan motor. Look for any obstruction around the fan or blade. Ice, misplaced wire etc.
Check the fan blade. Sometimes they slip down the shaft too far.
If you find none of these issues, replace the fan motor.

This has to be the evap. fan motor. I have ran into this alot. If you take the vent off the topcenter of the freezer back panel useing a simple flat head unlock the clips. Once you see the fan blades push it with your finger carefully if it spins slow and little wobblely the motor has failed. If it turns not at all then check for 120V. going into the motor by unhooking it if you get 120V motor bad if you get nothing then the Jazzboard or Highvoltage control board has failed. To install a new fanmotor is easy take your time most parts come out with a flathead screw driver and 1/4inchnutdriver. Evap. fan motor is just clipped in.

Noisy whirlpool condensor fan motor


These motors with the plastic fan are apparently failing so often that when I went to the parts store, the owner told me on guy bought 4 replacement motors for his condo complex. Buy the old version of the motor with a metal fan blade. You have to clip off the white connector on the wiring harness and then wire to the new motor using wire nuts (easy). It's a lot cheaper too - $49 for the motor and blade vs alost $100 for the crappy plastic one. Running llike a champ right now!
