Customer Question
I have a Electrolux...

I have a Electrolux Mod plhs269zcb4 frig. that has an unusal problem. Early each morning the frig. makes a sound like the evaporator motor in the freezer is trying to start. I have opened the freezer to here the motor is trying to start then it stops, then trys to start again, then stops. This goes on for about 5 minutes then it starts and continues to run. I think it could be a control board related problem. what do you think

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Electrolux is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

About 20 years old

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes, because Ive replaced many parts myself and feed fairly confortable with completing repairs.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

The unit is in excellent shape and my wife really likes this frig. This problem has not affected the operation of the frig. it just is very suspecicous of problems ahead and if is a control board then it is a simple fix for me

They had issues with that fan motor, so I would not be surprised if the fan motor is bad. The control is not causing this issue since the fan is a 120 volt fan. I replace them all the time for that issue. Here is a link to the part and video.
