Hi.. let me see if I can help... as you may know...if the fan motor is 115v.. they will all turn the same direction...its the fan blade that makes it cw or ccw... what is the manufacturer of this model... ?

The only information I can find on TM52 is a small under counter refrigerator..

if this is it... have you checked to see if the compressor is running?

these are generally throw away units..(meaning the cost for one new is less than the cost of a service charge)..

and the refrig. units are usually without charging ports...

Let me know..

No this is large 2 door stand up fridge made by true. they also have cw and ccw motors. IT does have charging ports for 134a if you cant help let me know. I will check some other sight.

Hi... ok.. well those units are wired 115v.. so if you replaced the fan motor with the correct replacement it should be turning correctly... if not the motor could be bad from happens.. I have to assume you read the label before putting the new one in... my other question still the compressor could have a low charge, bad compressor, bad start components on the compressor... faulty thermostat...

most of which will need to be checked by a service professional...unless you are good with and have your own gauges...

Let me know what you find...
