Installation Instructions

Showing 1-5 of 5 Instructions

Very noisy whenever the fan came on.

Watched several online videos. Removed the fan blade, then the motor still attached to the motor mount so I could see what I was doing to attach the new motor to the motor mount. Then reinstalled the whole assembly, plugged in it's wires with the supplied adapter and attached the new fan blade.

Bearings on the condensor fan motor went out.

1. Pulled Frig from the wall to gain bottom rear access. 2. Disconnected the 110V power plug. 3. using either Phillips screwdriver or small socket drive remove 5 screws holding on the rear piece of cardboard at the bottom of the backside of the refrigerator. 4. locate the fan just on the inside. 5. disconnect electrical plug. this is only a few inches from fan. 6. remove the three screws holding the fan motor to the housing. I left the fan blade on the old motor. after the three screws were removed the fan with blade came out pretty easily. 7. Next take the new motor and push on the new fan blade. Make sure it goes on all the way. It is connected by friction and the fan is plastic. It wouldn't be too hard to break the fan. If you do you could probably reuse the old plastic fan. 8. Next, find the electrical plug on the new motor and compare it to the old motor. Mine didn't match, but the kit I ordered from this site came with a connector the plugged in between. 9. So connect this before installing the fan. You will need to pay attention to how you install the new motor because it is symmetrical and may be rotated up to three ways to install. However, only one way will give the best clearance for the electrical plug with the new connector installed. 10. Holding the motor in place install the three screws. This isn't difficult if you've done a little small-space work before. you have to push in will turning the screws and holding a flashlight at the same time. Takes a little patience, but all in all its pretty easy. I did it alone and in 15mins. 11. After the motor is installed with fan then you should connect the other end of the electrical plug to the frig. 12. Next perform a test on the frig before putting the cardboard cover back into place. To do this simply connect the power plug to the 110v outlet and the fan should come on and spin smoothly within 5 secs. Observe it long enough to feel the job is done well. 13. Then disconnect the frig power outlet again and continue replacing the cardboard and the retaining screws. 14. Lastly, plug the frig back in and slowly push the frig back into place.

Condenser was making a loud noise

The motor I ordered had easy instructions to follow. The motor works fine .The only problem I had was getting my hands back in there to get the three screws out. my hands are on the large size. A twelve year could have did this much easier.
