Question about General Electric GE Profile CounterTop Microwave - Model Number: PSHF6VGXBB Side by Side Commercial Refrigerator
The bearings on the condensor fan motor are dry. You can attempt to lubricate the motor with a parifin based oil using either Union 76 "Turbine Oil" or a product called ZOOM-Spout turbine Oiler that is available in most hardware and appliance parts stores. See this link for examples of the oiler: http://www.google.com/search?q=Zoom+Spout+turbine+Oil&hl=en&safe=off&pwst=1&rls=com.microsoft:en-ph&prmd=ivns&source=univ&tbm=shop&tbo=u&ei=sqPZTcivKISEvAPOv-G_Bw&sa=X&oi=product_result_group&ct=image&resnum=3&ved=0CCoQzAMwAg&biw=1003&bih=587
Do what you can to clean off the bearings and armature shaft then lubricate with the oil.
Most of the time lubrication will snap a tired fan out of running slow. On the hard molded motors (encased) lubrication takes much longer as you have to lubricate and wait for the oil to reach the lower bearing deep inside the housing. It is ok to oil from the top and let it run to the lower bearing. It will not hurt the fan. I place the fan on a paper towel for as long as I can and wait for the exvess to drain off before re-installing the motor. On the non-encased motors you can remove the bearings and clean the motor shaft and the bearing then lubricate reassemble and lubricate again.
If your using an external fan... it is OK to use the refrigerator while your waiting for the oil in the motor to drip out. Just make sure there is a 15 minute pause each time you remove power or the compressor will not re-start properly.
