But they are saving money. $$$ NOT

I don't know what's worse, that or using a supco fan motor.

If you see Panasonic on any evaporator or condenser fan motor, you  know it's junk for sure.

That is paramount to the manufacture trying to save a nickel on every unit in production just to send a warranty tech out after it is sold to replace the inferior original with an upgraded part.

Patricio, what you have to realize is that to the manufacturer that is perfectly okay. And here is why: Manufacturing, replacement and repair are three separate budgets in the corporate system. Your manufacturing budget is one amount, repair is another and replacement a third. All manufacturing goes under the manufacturing budget, but is only allocated x amount, whereas the repair budget is much higher and it is acceptable to dump lots from it. The replacement budget is finite and they had putting anything against that budget because then they have to justify why they allocated funds from the replacement budget to replace a unit for someone. Same for manufacturing. They have to then justify a sudden increase in allotment of funds for a type of unit or part. Sometimes this is acceptable, other times it just doesn't fly so they will keep changing out parts with the same bad part until its such a problem against the replacement and repair budgets that there is an obvious need to do it and they can justify it. 

 

Don't ask me why they think this way, but lord knows LG use to pull this all the time. We would be sent out to do repairs on units that obviously needed replacement or should have been replaced from a customer satisfaction/loyalty standpoint long before the point where it got to me.

Have you all used that SM999 fan motor? Those are junk but can get you by for a couple of days if you need to order one.

I would only use one on very basic fridges. I definitely would not use one on fridges that use variable speed dc motors or on any GE Fridge where fan motors are known to take out mainboards.

I don't even think those would work on a DC motor.
