Condenser fan in a GE refrigerator runs slowly, compressor hot; how to test the condenser fan

Samurai Appliance Repair Man


Check the voltage going to the condenser fan, should have +12vdc on the red wire with your common probe on the white wire. Make the measurement with the fan connected. Easiest to check it at the muthaboard. See this reference:



If you have a good power supply to the fan, then replace the condenser fan motor ==> http://www.repaircli...4X10055/1093723
