GE ziss360dress need to replace condenser fan motor

Recommended Posts

boatflipper

Hello everyone.  I need to replace the condenser fan motor in my GE Monogram built-in fridge with the condenser/fan/compressor top-mounted.  The fan is "sandwiched" between the condenser at the rear and the compressor in the front.  How do I access the fan motor to replace.  Any help is much appreciated.  Thanks

The only answer to your question: " How do I access the fan motor to replace," is "With much difficulty." 

If you look up the model number at Appliance Parts Pros, it will show an exploded view diagram of the upper compartment. Removing the side 'baffle' should let you remove the 'shroud.' The fan motor is mounted on the shroud...

Machine Compartment
The machine compartment is located on the top of the unit and has a movable chassis that can be extended from the front of the unit to provide access to the refrigeration system components.
Caution:
Avoid kinking the refrigeration lines when sliding the chassis out and back in.
To extend the chassis:
1. Remove the grille panel by removing 2 screws from each side (see photo).
2. Remove the wire guard and rocker switch panel.
3. Remove the condenser baffle.
4. Loosen the front 7/16-in. track bolts (1 on each side of the compressor) from the front of the
chassis track.
5. Remove the rear 7/16-in. track bolts (1 on each side of the compressor) and the spacers under the rear of the chassis track.
6. Pull the chassis forward until it reaches the stops in the tracks, working the refrigeration tubing as you pull the chassis out.
Note.
When sliding the chassis back into position, be certain the lines and wiring have not fallen behind the chassis.
Use the grille screws for adjustment when realigning the grille.
 
To Remove the Fan
1. Extend the chassis (see Machine
Compartment above).
2. Pull the blade off the motor shaft.
3. Cut the wire tie securing the fan wiring to the fan bracket.
 
Caution:
Fan connector can be separated into 3 segments (center, left side, and right side). Disconnect the fan connector at the center only.
4. Disconnect the fan connector.
5. Feed wiring through the hole in the fan shroud.
6. Remove 2 screws, top section of fan bracket, and motor

Chat-in-RI - 

Your post was a huge help.  Just had to replace my condenser fan last night in my built in GE Monogram.  It is only 4 years old and so far 2 transformers and now the fan.  Looks like I will get plenty of practice fixing this expensive piece of junk.

I have to replace the fan motor in a GE Monogram this afternoon.  The description is helpful, but having access to the photos referenced in the post would be terrific.
