And yes, it's got power the whole time. It stopped cooling on both sides, fridge and freezer, so I got out the multimeter, voltage probe, nut drivers, and shop vac. I pulled it out of the cabinet, vacuumed the dust bunny herd around and behind it, and presto, "It's a Flag Day miracle" it started running again. I haven't opened the back to test the condenser fan for a sticky bearing, but it makes sense to me.

That sound about right?

Thanks in advance,


Matt

Condenser fan is your next stop. If it's stopped and re-starts when you give it a flick, don't trust it-- it'll stop again.

HELP. The part number for my evaporator fan motor is no longer made. Does anyone have the specs on the fan - shaft diameter and length, rotation direction? Or a substitute part number?
The OEM part # is 5304406647.


Thanks,

Matt

Thanks guys. I was able to sight match a substitute evaporator fan motor at the local appliance parts store.

On a side note, while I was replacing the evap. fan motor, I pulled the ice dispenser out to clean it. I'm no germ-a-phobe,
but evidently it had never been cleaned and the stainless plate (I think it's SS) was rusty. I cleaned it up, put it back
together.

Two follow ups. One, why the hell is that plate rusted? bad water? not stainless? Two, now I get nothing when I set it to crushed ice, the auger won't turn
on the dispenser. What the hell did I miss?

Thanks in advance,

Matt
