Condenser fan motor seized

  • Customer: Benjamin from Daytona Beach FL
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers
  • 6 of 6 people found this instruction helpful
While investigating a water leak I discovered the condenser fan seized. I removed the fan to prevent a fire and ordered the part. The hardest part was identifying the correct fan. That took longer than the installation.
I cut the wires and spliced in the new motor. It rotated correctly and I replaced the crill.
Done
Total time of ice maker water leak repair and fan replacement about 1 hour.

simply removed old motor and replaced new. I'm over 82 and it was hard to get down and up to floor level!! One thing was a little puzeling -that was to insert the right screws which had a nitch in the end of the threds to keep it from loosening- I thought I was spoiling the threds cause I had to use a little pressure to start the screws and thought I had the wrong screws--they had sent several sets of them for different name brands- but II got it and everything seems to be allright - Could you tell me if I could purchase a replacement compressor and some refrigerent -the new kind. thank you, George Erlandson Only if my comp. goes out!!!

1. I removed all screws holding the old gasket.

2. I removed the old gasket.

3. I removed and unfolded the new gasket from the shipping package.

4. I used a hair dryer to heat and straighten the gasket.

5. I installed the new gasket and secured it with the screws.

6. Some gasket deformation still remained, so I used the hair dryer again the next day to heat the gasket. Adding a small piece of cardboard behind
the gasket also helped to restore the gasket shape.

Replaced these items to upgrade refrigerator. Also replaced ice maker, water valve and condensor fan motor and blade. Replaced worn or broken shelving parts. Total cost was worth the effort for the quality of finished product as compared to what is on the market today!

Ice maker leaked water

  • Customer: Robert from Pennsylvania Furnace PA

Overall, replacing the ice maker wasn't too bad but it wasn't nearly as easy for me as it seems to have been for some. In my case, the fridge was an Amana and the ice maker was mounted in such a way that disconnecting the power connector was difficult. The ice maker had to be completely dismounted before any access to the power connector was even possible. The short power cables made it very difficult to get the ice maker into a position where I had a good view of the power connector enabling me to see how to release it. The only other challenge was the cup that the water line goes into. The replacement ice maker did not come with the right cup - the instructions said to replace the provided one with the old one. No instructions for this procedure were provided and it looked to me like it might involve significant disassembly, something I wanted to avoid for fear of breaking a plastic part on the new ice maker (something I had already done when disassembling the old ice maker). So instead of replacing the cup, I modified the new one to match the old one. This involved removing a cutout on one side and covering a hole on the other. Installation of the new ice maker went fine and the water leak problem was fixed.

Fridge not cooling

  • Customer: David from Middletown DE
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

Got home from work and the wife tells me she has bad news. She says the fridge is not working. I pull it out from wall and check to see if the compressor is working. It was, so i cleaned the dust and got on the net. Soon I was diagnosing the problem and pulled the fan. The next day I called local shops with no luck. From this site I got the right part delivered in 1 day. It only took about 30 minutes to install and within minutes the fridge came back to life. Thanks I will definetly recommend.

freezer will not freeze or cool the ice box

  • Customer: David from Choctaw OK
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set
  • 6 of 8 people found this instruction helpful
I have replaced the circuit board, the condenser fan motor but the unit still will not feeze correctly. The bottom of the unit freezes but just barely cools the rest of the freezer and ice box. Have you got any other advice that might help. This is a side by side unit. What else could be the problem. It seems that the fan is not working correctly or it is stuck in defrost mode. The coils where the fan is seem to be icing up but it will not let the fan work. THanks for your help, David Wilson

Pop loose the plastic grate at the bottom.

Locate and remove the wheel leveling screw from the front bottom corner.

Remove cotter pin from the pin that mounts the wheel assembly to the refrigerator. Tap out the mounting pin.

Lift out the wheel assembly.

Remove the Roller pin from the wheel assembly. I used a Dremel tool with a cutting disk. A hack saw will also probably work.

Install the new roller pin and wheel into the wheel assembly. Use a hammer or vice to peen over the end of the roller pin.

Reinstall and adjust wheel assembly.

Use a small slot-head screwdriver to remove the tiny plastic clip on the bottom of the handle, and SAVE it, as none comes with the replacement part. Remove three screws. Remove old door handle. Position new door handle correctly, and insert three screws. Replace small plastic clip on bottom of door handle.

It took me three minutes

The ice maker stopped making ice.

I did a few tests with the old ice maker and determined that it was the ice maker itself that was faulty. The replacement part I ordered exceeded my expectations in the time it took to get the part. I reused the arm, wire harness and clamps from the old icemaker. Then it was a simple install into the bottom freezer compartment, turning on the water supply and bingo...lots of ice cubes.

ice maker not working

  • Customer: Ron from Bartlett IL
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers

It turned out the water valve was not the problem but I think it works a bit better with the new one. I had replaced the main part of the icemaker inside the freezer which had lost the smooth finish in the ice tray. It worked for awhile but quit.
What had happened was the large approx. 1/2 inch tube going from the back of the refrigerator to the icemaker tray became plugged with ice. It was difficult to get it out due to the ice but once I did it was easy to melt it and put it back together. All's well that ends well and avoid the cost of a repair call. Working great now.
