Freezer in defrost to long


The motherboard determines the defrost time and how often, but I don't think it is the most likely reason for what appears to be a extended defrost. Sometimes the start relay, overload and run capacitor fail causing the compressor to short cycle. Sometimes the whole problem is caused by a defective condenser fan motor that stops and runs or runs poorly causing the compressor to overheat.
Here are the parts=> WR62X0079 Run Capacitor
WR08X10025 Overload
and the WR07X10084 Start Relay

The condenser fan is=> WR60X10220 Condenser Fan Motor

Replacing a condenser fan in centralized A/C


On of the common problem with centralized A/C unit is a bad condenser fan. I have known people who called an ac technician to fix their ac because of a bad condenser fan and suggested replacing the whole unit! Costing them a lot of money when all it needed was a 50 dollars condenser fan! If the condenser fan do not run or it runs only when you give it a push, it'sbad. You will also notice that it is vey hot. When replacing a condenser fan you may want to replace the starting capacitor too. Replacing a condenser fan is not very hard, just make sure that the power to the ac unit is turned off at the breaker box. Confirm that the wires are not live by using a meter or an ac tester. The fan motor are held with brakets sometimes just screws. Most fan you can buy that has reversible rotation by just reversing the plug. Make sure it is blowing upwards. If not reverse the rotation. So if you notice that the unit is not putting out cold enough air and you went outside and noticed the compressor running but not the fan, turn off the AC right away and do not use it untill the fan is replaced. Running the unit with a defective fan can damage the compressor caused by overheating.

GE Monogram ZISB36DYB Freezer Not Cold Enough; Burning Center


Pull the refrig out , and remove the panel at the bottom , on the back . Behind this panel , will be the compressor and condenser " roll " coil , and the condenser fan motor . From your description of the problem , the fan motor in not operating , or the coils are extremely clogged with dust . If the fan motor is not operating , the most likely cause , is the main control board . You can try replacing the motor first , but , the board is most likely the cause . This is the electronic board , behind the 8 " X 10 " panel , behind the refrig also . If you remove the panel , and look at the board closely , You may see a burned part ( resistor ) . However , replacing the burnt part , will not solve the problem . The complete board will need to be replaced .

Cooling fan in condenser sometimes does not run.


Shut off the power before inspecting or repairing! I would check the wiring harness inside the condensor unit for loose connections and or broken wire first. Then you might try removing the capacitor to the fan (some operate both the fan and compressor) and have it tested. If all is OK then your fan motor is probably overheating and may need replaced. A bad capacitor can cause the motor to overheat. If you had a lightning storm just before the problem the capacitor is most likely the problem.

Amana Cooling Condensing Unit fan won't kick on


be aware that not repairing this asap that you are causing yourself more problems First I would change out the fan capacitor and see if this could be the problem. Secondly if the capacitor isn,t the problem change out the motor . By continuing to allow the system to cycle like this the compressor will take a dive on you costing more . Good Luck

Unit never seems to stop running, always running


There are several things that could cause this issue. If you have a condenser fan underneath the fridg that has stopped running due to poor lubrication, maybe debris blocking the fan blades or a dirty condenser especially if you have pets. You can clean the **** from under the fridg (remove the grill on the front and vacuum out) or if the fan is not running with the compressor as it should repair or replace it the fan motor. Also a worn out door gasket can cause excess run time.

If it is making a continuous noise, and your air conditioner is still not cooling at all, there may be a serious problem with one or more of these areas:

  • Compressor
  • Condenser
  • Evaporator

  • OR

    This could the problem the with short circuit or defective component you need to check :
  • Compressor
  • Overload and/or relay
  • Thermostat (Open thermostat)
  • Burnt wiring
  • Bad selector switch
  • Capacitor

  • Good luck....

    GE Central A/C Unit about 30 yrs old; condenser fan stops after a short time.


    I gather that it is the outdoor fan motor that runs a bit then stops.

    Fan motors that stop by themselves are overheating and going into self-protect. The fact that you replaced the motor and capacitor opens up a whole world of "which wire is in the wrong place". I could do this if I could see it, but I can't see it. You're probably going to wind up calling a service man to sort out the wiring.
