The speed nut (also referred to as a condenser motor fan nut), fits onto the condenser fan motor. The motor for this fan turns on simultaneously with the evaporator and the compressor motors, so a malfunction in the condenser fan motor could cause your fridge to cycle on and off more frequently or run too warm, or too noisily. Make sure that the speed nut is properly attached and tight. Check the nut for any signs of wear or damage. If the nut is damaged and refuses to tighten, you should replace the part immediately. Remember to unplug your refrigerator before starting this repair.

This part works with the following brands: Kenmore, Whirlpool, KitchenAid, Amana, Maytag, Admiral, Magic Chef, Crosley, Roper, Jenn-Air, Estate, Hoover, International, Norge, Inglis.

Refrig making a lot of noise

The motor kit had only two wires coming out of it. The existing one in the refrig had 6. I spliced the 2 red to one black on the new part and 2 white to the other black wire on the new part. The two green I attached to a screw. I left the 6 wire harness in place just cut off the plug piece that went into the old motor, and spliced all my wires.
Worked great!

Refrigerator noise

unplugged refrigerator, unplugged fan motor under fridge, unscrewed four metal screws holding fan support, took support and fan out together, unbolted fan from support frame, reversed procedure to reinstall then cut both red wires and both white wires, fan comes with only two wires so i connected the two red wires to one of the black wire, and connected two white wires to the other black wires, used connectors in hardware package to secure connections, turned refrigerator back on, worked perfectly, fan installed in bracket support perfectly. just want to point out that the fan motor does come with a fan blade and hold down screw so those items don't have to be purchased seperately.
