Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today
the first thing to do is check your condenser fan. its down near the compressor. make sure thats running .
I checked. The fan isn't moving. Should I unplug unit so as to not cause a fire?
No, it didn't.
Hi again....was busy hooking up a house fan to cool condenser/compressor. I'm pointing the house fan at the coils where the little fan inside was point at. Is that correct??
Also, is this part something a do-it-yourselfer can do? Is it just plug out the old , and plug in the new??
I'm not sure if its really working, but I peeked in the fridge and the Freezer temp is at 12, it was 16. So I should leave the fan on all night?? I have it now on a HIGH setting. I was thinking of dropping it to LOW for the overnight.
Also, the door edge around the top right & left of the freezer is now cooling down, it was very HOT before. The Left side was extremley hot, and the right side was hot. NOW: the left is luke warm, and the right seems to be cool.
Does this sound like what the problem is?? Can I go to an applliance parts store to get this tomorrow?? Or am I better to order it online??
Good Afternoon. Well, pertaining to the previous questions about my GE fridge. I received the fan motor and replaced it in the unit. It didn't turn on, nor did the unit hold it temp in the freezer.
I had a small house fan hooked up to keep it the condensor cool. It ran from Saturday night the 27th all the way to yesterday afternoon (continously on LOW speed). I thought 'maybe' the condensor was so 'cool' from this fan running, that it didn't have the chance to signal the fan motor to kick in.
Now I placed the house fan back last night to avoid the temp spiking. I wondering if its the 'circuit board' now.
As you may remember, I don't have coverage on the unit anymore. And to be honest, I'm really trying to fix this myself, but I'm wondering if it's out of my league.
