Question about Kenmore Refrigerators

Fan not working?

Problem #1 - Not sure where the model number is located - there's something on the energy sticker inside that says Model 4666792.  Fridge is 7 years old.
Problem #2 - Freezer is cold, fridge is not.  Suspect fan not working.  We've had ice buildup problems several years ago and when the guy came in, he took out the panel at the bottom of the fridge compartment (I think) and showed us a hopper-type funnel at the middle back part of the fridge, where excess water goes?  That was full of ice and kept the fan from moving (I think).  I think we have the same problem again.  I remember the guy saying we could do it ourselves if it happened again ... but now, when I remove the panel at the bottom of the fridge, I see the covering of the hopper but no way that I can see to pry it off.  Directly underneath, in the freezer compartment, is the other half of this hopper, with a little hole in the bottom.
What I want to do is open up that hopper and thaw / chip out the ice and get the fan going again.  If in fact, that is the problem.
Thanks for any help you can give!

    The response I got was a quick reference to an online manual that did NOT have an answer to my problem. There was nothing even close to an answer to my problem. The "expert" was completely mistaken to give me this advice. It is clear that no effort was made to help me. The assistance was completely non-useful. Fortunately I figured it out myself, so I guess I'm the expert.

if its just like u said its a eveporator fan issue foolow me to how to test it:

Caution: Please read our safety information before attempting any testing or repairs.
Fan not working? - cautiontri.gif Before testing the fan, unplug the refrigerator to avoid an electrical shock hazard.
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.

this is a standar fan try ur imagination sir hehe!!

Remove any screws that secure the fan or fan housing so that you can access the fan's wiring. Typically two screws secure the mounting bracket in place (labeled "A" below). It may be easier to remove the entire rear panel if the mounting brackets screws are inaccessible.

fc29aa1.jpg this is how to remove it

The fan is connected by two or three wires. Label the wire placement on the fan before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected to the fan with slip-on connectors. Firmly pull the connector off (do not pull on the wire) of the fan's terminal. 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.

Spin the fan blade, it should move smoothly and freely. If the movement is not smooth, the motor should be replaced.
Test the fan for continuity using a multitester. Set the multitester to the ohms setting X1. Place a probe on each terminal. The multitester should display a reading of zero ohms. If the fan does not pass this test, it should be replaced.

Where is the model number of a flush mount ceiling fan?

Where can I locate the model number of the fan?
There's a gold sticker on top of your fan's motor (the part that faces the ceiling once it is installed). Holding a mirror above the fan motor can help you read the numbers. It may also be found on the parts guide that was packed with your fan or on the box that contained your fan. You're looking for a 5-digit number and it sometimes has a suffix...i.e. 22345A

Regarding recent fire risks with Beko FF. I can't

The serial number should be in the top fridge compartment, on the inside. Left hand wall three quarters of the way up and about 4 inches in. A silver or white sticker with the Model and performance data written horizontally and the serial number in bold written vertically.

The model number you have given doesn't match any on the list,.

Freezer fan is noisey and can t find serial number

The number you will need is the model number. On side by side models there are a few places to look. 1- inside fridge on right or left wall. 2- Open fridge door and look up near the top front lip. 3- Open both doors and look on body of fridge under the doors. 4- Fridge door sometimes there is a sticker right when you open. Mostly you are looking for a silver sticker or silver plate. It gives you a model number and serial number. If you need further assistance please mail me back.

Whirlpool 40 gallon energy smart elecrtic water heater. The control board binks once, by the panel means system start up failure,but we still have hot water,but every time we use the hot water it starts...

The evidence points to a control malfunction.
Call Whirlpool for assistance: 1-877-817-6750
You will need your model number and serial number located on label on side of tank.
Serial number is required because models change as the technology evolves.

Open following link to read product details about the Energy Smart, and download typical manual.

Note: Energy Smart water heater requires 10 gauge wire and 30 amp breaker.

Typical energy smart manual shows: 1 flash is start-up error, which indicates 'Power ON with no water in tank.'
This is not possible because at least the upper element would burn out, if not both elements.
If upper element burns out, this water heater will not make any hot water, since it is wired for ordinary non-simultaneous operation.
There cannot be air inside the tank since your hot water faucet is not spewing air.

Also be aware that model numbers change.
Read following account of fellow who replaced control board on his 4-year-old energy smart, and how he discovered wires are reversed on newer control boards. Be sure to ask Whirlpool about this possibility, in the event they say control board is faulty and send you new board:

I believe the digital hunter thermostat say energy moitor 1

Find the 5-digit model number (example 40170) on your thermostat. Go to and paste the number into the search field at the top of the page. If Hunter still supports this product, you should be taken to the support page for it which has a link to the product manual PDF.

Goodman 3 ton outside unit fan not blowing

Motor, wiring and/or capacitor. If the sticker on the side of the motor isn't burned off you can get the motor info off that. Model numbers from the motor do little for locating the motor but my help. Best thing to do is get the AC motor specs and look up online (cheapest) or go to a motor shop. The specs you need would be as follows.
Horsepower-Such as 1/4 or 1/3
Voltage-Most likely 240/1 (240vac single phase)
Rotation-CW/CCW looking at the shaft end of the motor
Frame size
