Hello oh Wise Ones,
Newby here looking for assistance. I have a Sub-Zero 561 that has a Condenser Fan Motor (CFM) Problem. The fan motor is not rotating regularly. I noticed it not spinning and gave it a flick and it started spinning and cooloing the condenser. i watch for 10 min and continued running. Then checked agin and it was stopped. Flicked again and it ran for a while, slowed down and stopped. Flicked again and it runs. I am no rocket scientist, but I am pretty sure I should not have to flick this fan to make it opperate.
I have ordered a new CFM and it is being shipped. In the meantime, could ther be another issue with either the Starting Relay, Running Capacitor, Overload Protector or even the Defrost Timer? I found it a bit strange that the fan sometimes ran very slowly. Is this a multi speed fan or just one speed?
I have a multimeter and the knowhow to use it, but am not sure what to check.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thank you in advance,
