Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.

Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

If it were stuck in defrost the evaporator fan would not be running either so that is not the issue. Touch the compressor but be careful it may be real hot, if its too warm to touch then that means that the condenser fan has failed and it the compressor is shutting off in overload from being to hot and the condenser fan will need to be replaced. Let me know if the compressor is hot or not and if so I will get you the replacement fan motor. If the evaporator fan is running then the condenser fan should also be running. If you would like me to call I will send the offer, just accept the offer if you still want me to give you a call, thanks. Let me know what you find in the meantime please read below:
