Condenser fan motor and capacitor

30 July 2014 - 06:13 PM

Ok guys. a real do it yourself mistake.  My 8 year old condenser fan motor stopped working. might have been just the capacitor but decided since the motor was old AND had an AC repairman tell me (5 years ago) that the motor was failing I just decided to put in a new motor and capacitor. No problem, fired right up only problem was I had the fan blades on upside down. realized this right away and turned the blades around. BUT! Apparently I did not tighten down the set screw on the shaft! The blade reversed threaded itself up the shaft till the blades hit motor housing and stopped turning. Did I burn the motor out? Maybe fried the capacitor? More serious damage? Help me out guys. Thanks Bratton.

Should I repair, or buy new?

I have a frigidaire Model # FDB750RCS0. They heating element does not function and  the control dial sticks in 2 different places so it will run all day if I am not home.  I don't know the year of this unit ( at least 5 years old). Is this a cheap easy fix or should I just buy a new dishwasher?

Wondering if this is a Thermocoupler problem. Pilot lite was out. Shut everything off. relit pilot and burner came on. next day pilot lite out again. relit the pilot and burner came on again. once up to temp, burner shuts down and pilot lite also. Maybe just clean coupler with compressed air?

Have replaced the heater defrost assembly. Still freezes up. Waiting for a new conductor as I didn't know the old one could be blown (open) Is this the problem? Don't know what else to do!

Error message on LG lfc25760

Have an error message on display. Er dH. Was told it is the heater defrost assembly. I replaced it ( not an easy task) after cleaning up the blood from my sliced up fingers plugged it in and all seems to be well. Freezer temp is 0 degrees and fridge temp is 37. No frost buildup on back of freezer panel as it was before I replaced unit. But the error message is back on. Unplugged it for a few seconds and plugged it back in message is replaced with temps, then after a few hrs the error message comes back on. Seems to be running well though. Answers please.
