Yes it is removable. Pull it out not towards the back but the side. There is a plastic strap that snaps into a slot on the top of the motor.

How do you defrost the kelvinator cyclic 300 fridge?


hi,
a manual defrost? unplug and get a 9by11 cake pan and a bunch of towels and a hairdryer. put the hairdryer on LOW only and get it positioned in the freezer (door) compartment so its pointing towards the back. cake pan in the bottom towels below. and on the floor. leave the door open about 3 or 4 inches but NOT shut so you have some air circulation. and check it frequently. make sure the hair dryer isnt pointed at the plastics at all. takes a day. pull it from the wall, remove the rear access cover behind the fridge and blow it out with a vac or air compressor too. theres an access panel inside the freezer and if your handy, your ice blockage causing that problem lives behind there in the freezer. use caution if your going to attempt taking that plate off inside. use nothing sharp.

How do u replace belt on 1996 buick rivera


REMOVE THE MOTOR MOUNT. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A JACK AND A N OLD YELLOW OR WHITE PAGES. PLACE THE BOOK ON TOP OF THE JACK. PUT THAT UNDER THE OIL PAN. JACK THE JACK UP TILL IT MEETS UP WITH THE OIL PAN. YOU WONT TO USE SOMETHING SOFT BUT STRONG. THE OIL PAN IS MADE OF VERY VERY THIN ALUMINUM SO BE CAREFUL NOT TO CRUSH IT. NOW THAT THE JACK IS SNUG UNDER THE OIL PAND YOU CAN REMOVE THE MOTOR MOUNT . THEN REMOVE THE BELT. TAKE NOTE OF HOW THE BELT WRAPS THRU THE MOTOR MOUNT. I LIKE TO DRAW OUT A PIC OF IT SO I WILL NOT FORGET.
TO REMOVE THE BELT TAKE A 15MM WRENCH AND RELEASE TENSION OFF THE TENSIONER. WATCH YOUR FINGERS BECAUSE IF IT SLIPS YOU WILL BE SCREAMING YOUR **** OFF IN PAIN

Good day,
If the freezer is performing properly then in warm weather this is entirely normal. That is the condenser tubing and as it gets warmer, the inside gets cooler.

Loud vibration sound coming from rear bottom near motor? sounds like my porter cable compressor running.


HI. Just so you know, Hissing and popping is normal on frost free refrigerators, it is the defrost heater, in this case. I would check these following areas to address any other abnormal noises.

If the level of the unit is not adjusted to proper specs, this will create an unstable operating condition, causing many noises to emit from the units structure. inspect the unit for proper level. adjust if needed. Next will be the drain pan. Once removed for cleaning, the pan must be replaced in position correctly. If not, the pan will rattle against the compressor, causing a ping or rattle.Simply reposition the tray if this is the case. The third possible issue will be the condenser fan. The condenser fan is located behind the refrigerator. It may be necessary to remove an access panel to reach it. This fan has a shroud, and if the fan blade becomes warped, it will rub against the shroud, causing noise. This fan blade is whole,and it can be removed and replaced if this is the case. Ok, the fourth problem spot will be the evaporator fan.

The evaporator fan is located at the back of the freezer. It may be necessary to remove obstructions such as the contents of the freezer, freezer shelves, ice maker and the rear inside panel of the freezer. The rear panel may be held in place by retainer clips or screws. Remove the screws or depress the retainer clips with a small screwdriver. Check the fan for warped blades. if the blades are warped or mis-aligned, replace it. This fan also is protected by a shroud as well, and it will make noise if the fan blade is damaged.

Last, i would move on to the compressor mounts. This is the most common spot for noise overtime. The compressor sits on rubber mountings. Those rubber mountings are designed to absorb vibration from the compressor. As the mountings age, they can become hard or disintegrate. When this happens, the compressor vibration is transmitted to the refrigerator structure and it can cause noise.


The compressor is located in the rear. It may be necessary to remove an access panel to get to the compressor.

Locate the compressor and remove the screw or retaining clip of just one of the compressor mounts.Using a pry bar, lift up the compressor enough to slip out the rubber mount. Inspect the mount for deterioration. The rubber should be firm but not rigid. If the mount is crumbling or hard, it should be replaced.


This concludes the inspection procedure. Follow carefully, and replace any failed or damaged device.

Drops of water are forming on the roof of my refrigerator and ice is forming in the freezer and it is not as cold in the refrigerator


Sounds like your defroster is not working...bad defrost control or the heater for the defroster is burned out....also need to check to see that the circulation fan in the freezer compartment is blowing ok. You could do the old fashioned thing and remove all the food for a while, leave the doors open, blow with a fan inside the compartments to warm it all up and defrost any ice that may be under the evaporator coils...you can not see this ice as it is under sheet metal. Also check that the little pan at the bottom of the refrigerator is ok and that the hose to it is not stopped up preventing water from getting to the pan during the defrost cycle.

Oil Pan Gasket Replacement - How to - GMC Yukon 2000


No big job Really. Just locate your Drain Plug for the Oil. Thepan is right there, Remove the Bolts around the Pan and Remove. You will lose all of your oil so, Have something there to catch it all. Clean it all around the Edges of the Block where the Pan mounts with Degreaser and Make sure that you Scrape the Old Gasket off of Both the Block and the Pan. Run a Thin Bead of Blue ATV Silicone around the Pan Edge, Lay the Gasket on top of this Silicone. Put another Thin line on top of the Gasket and Reinstall. This Silicone is High Temp Silicone and will Seal Very Well. Make sure to put oil Back in the Motor! Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help That I can Get! Thanks!

Removal of Oil pan


did you try giving it a gentle smack with a rubber hammer? these pans are usually glued on with silicone and will not just fall off after unbolting... sometimes you need to get something like a paint scraper and slide it between block and rail to seperate the two.

Plugged defrost drain line in KitchenAid Refrigerator KTRS22KHBT00


If the freezer is on top then empty out the freezer and remove the bottom and back liner of the freezer compartment usually phillips screws. In the back you will see the freezer coils along with a defrost element. Below these two items u will see a drip tray that collects water from the coils on defrost cycle, in the center of the pan will be a drain hole that connects to a hose that leads to a pan under the refrigerator.Normally the water is collected there and evaporated. The hole in the tray in the freezer is clogged. Thaw it and clean it until you can pour water in it and it goes to the pan down below. please rate me
algae, bread ties andf other thing mysteriously get in there and clogg it

Fridge & freezer no longer cold


if you only removed the ice you can see without removing the back panel then you need more defrost time yes. but the frost will come back, something in the defrost system has failed. so the answer is yes to both questions off for longer and something more serious too.
