GE Condenser Fan Not Spinning

16 July 2012 - 06:04 PM

Hello Folks!

GE Profile bottom mount freezer
S/N LG...... built in 2004 -- sounds right.

I noticed ice cream melting, readout said around 24 F and fridge getting warm (can't remember).
I removed the back and saw the condenser fan not spinning.
I put a portable fan at the back and the readouts said: -5 F and 35 F (I think I had the dials set really cold).

On the J2 connector:
3 pin (white) 8 pin (red) = 13.57V
3 pin (white) 4 pin (yellow) = 12.71
3 pin (white) 5 pin (pink) = 2.40 (is this bad?)

The main board 2 resistors look fine.

I haven't tried Samurai's "Quick n' Sleazy Fan Test" yet; I notice the test is for a evaporator fan?

So for the Condenser fan test I would do this?
- White wire to the negative 9V battery terminal
- Connect BOTH the Red and pink wires to the positive 9V battery terminal

If it is the fan motor, how to I remove it from the tray?
