Customer Question
Ge frig mod. TBX18KKE...

Ge frig mod. TBX18KKE condenser fan cycles for 5 seconds and shuts off. clicking noise also. Could this be a bad guardette?

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

That is the model # from inside and it's proably 20+ years old

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

Yes

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

Will freon cause fan to cycle? Maybe the guardette is doing it's job.
