In Topic: Sub Zero 511 - Warm Fresh Food Compartment

Fridge evap is new in July, and I vacuumed / blew dust out of condensers when I had it apart yesterday.  What a mess - 23 year old dust all over the kitchen. 

 

As of now, fridge and freezer are cooling normally, exhaust out of the top is a lot cooler, ice maker is making ice.  

 

I plan to take the grill off in the next few days to check everything one last time before I declare a full victory.

Thanks all, motor arrived today - just finished installing it.  Total cost:  $42.88, which is less than the cost of a parking ticket for the service man to come and visit me.  A few observations:

 

1.  You boys who work on appliances earn your money, it was hard to work around all those other parts and get the the new motor installed  (took me almost 3 hours)

 

2.  It's dirty up there and a lot of the parts are hot 

 

3. The insulation on the wires to the old fan motor had completely fallen off, exposing the bare wires - very glad I replaced it - looked pretty unsafe in its current condition

 

4. I think the old fan motor had been failing for years - because the new one spins a whole lot faster

 

Thanks again - we are keeping a close eye on the Coors Light here in apartment 20D - very important that it stays cold!!

I caught the condenser fan snoozing on the job today.  So - a question...  While I wait for the new fan motor, is there a risk of compressor damage or fire when the fan stops running?  Seems like things get pretty hot up in front of the grill - not like fire hot, but hotter than normal nonetheless.   Just wondered if I should rig up some temporary fan or something in the mean time, or if I am doing anything dumb while I wait for the part.
