The condensor fan in the unit appeared to have been chewed by a mouse and would not function and the lower door was too low.
The condensor fan in the unit appeared to have been chewed by a mouse and would not function. We had a service call to verify this and ordered the parts. Delivery was extremely quick and we were able to complete the repair and place the unit back into service within 2 hours.

All that was necessary was to remove the bottom cardboard cover, replace the fan and grommets, and replace the door bushings.

Thanks!!

Noisey Compressor Cooling Fan
Wow, end result was amazing. I had to place my ear close to the refrigerator to find out if the fan was working. So quiet. Prior to this we could hear it in the bedroom. I replaced the fan motor, blade, grommets, i.e. the whole fan train. There were two screws holding the fan which were removed. (After removing the back panel.) Then removed the old blade and dust cap. Detached the wiring harness at the junction. Then reassemble in the reverse order. I screwed up the 1st time...installed the front motor grommet in reverse. Fan blade was not centered. Resulted in a few mins rework. Actually spent more time cleaning all the dust from the compartment and behind the refer than it took to install the new fan system. Did I say that I couldn't be more pleased with the no noise result?

the condenser fan motor was intermittently verynoisy. obvious sign of a (possibly imminent) failure
1 unplug the appliance
2. remove the rear cardboard cover, giving access to the compressor and condenser area
3. remove the two (condenser motor bracket) mounting screws, then with the motor assembly in your hand remove the the fan blade which is friction mounted to the motor shaft( note the exact position of the fan blade on the motor shaft so you can replace it in the same position when you reassemble), remove the two wires connected to the motor. Also remove the rubber resilient mounting grommets on the motor mount frame as these can harden with age and cause excessive vibration.
4 install the new motor into the mounting frame with the new grommets
5 reconnect the two wires to the new motor (non polarized)
6 secure the mounting frame (with the installed new motor) back in place
7 slide the fan blade onto the new motor shaft
8 screw the rear access panel back in place
plug in the refrigerator. the next time the compressor and condenser fan cycle on, verify operation of the new condenser fan motor

The freezer just cool but could not freeze the water and the front of door is quite hot to touch.
First I observe that the compressor motor is running since the freezer is cooling. The purchase of the condenser fan is initiated and when the part arrive it is just easy to reinstall the replacement condenser fan.

The problem on the front of the freezer door remains hot to touch and the compressor runs for a while and stop. The freezer is cold but still could not freeze the water. Inspection of the condenser fan reveals that it is not running. The order for the condenser fan from PARTSELECT came in a few days. Cleaning of the condenser of lint was first done and the process of removing the defective fan is just easy so with the installation.

The refrigerator as of now is running in perfect condition!

Thanks for helping make it an easy process. J. Smith

Noisy Fan Motor
Simple. Rolled the refrigerator out , unplugged the 120 volts AC outlet.(1) Unplugged the wiring from the cabinet to the fan (white (three pin connector)). (2) Removed the two 5/16 inch screws holding the rear motor bracket . (3) Removed the fan blade from the motor shaft by applying slight pressure, pulling if off the old motor shaft. (4) removed the rubber isolator from the frame and from the rear of the old motor. (5) placed the rubber isolators back on the motor and frame. (6) Pushed the new motor back into the frame and re-installed the fan assembly. (7) remounted the fan with the rear support and the two 5/16 inch screws. Reconnected the three wire connector. Just checked the fan blade assembly to make sure they were not hitting the fan shroud. Fan blades should sit just partially inside the shroud to make sure it produces maximum airflow.
(8) Reconnected the 120 volt AC and waited for the compressor to cycle back on... Nice quite fan... Thanks

I know 650 is the condenser fan motor, what is part 617 and do they come with fan motor replacement part. They look like placement washers . Thank you
For model number HTR17BBSARWW
PartSelect logo
Hi Lynda, Thank you for your question. Item number 617 are the Fan Grommets that fit on the shaft for the fan blades, it sits between the motor and mounting bracket and also on the metal mounting post on the back of the motor between the motor and rear mounting bracket.They help prevent vibration from the motor against the metal brackets. They are sold separately from the motor so if they are needed for your repair make sure you add two grommets to the cart as they are also sold individually. I hope this helps!

Super thanks for your answer I'm pretty pretty savvy when it comes to refrigerators air conditioners enough it's not making ice fast enough i know when the refrigerator runs and you can hear a fan blowing inside it's loud i don't hear anything eiffel also know there's more than one fan to this one in the bottom of the refrigerator as well not for me with what that one does
PartSelect logo
Hi Mark, Thank you for your follow up. The fan at the bottom is the condenser fan motor. It actually helps keep your condenser coils cool while the refrigerator is going through its cooling cycle. Then you have the fan motor in the back of your freezer area, which is the evaporator fan motor. That part helps push the cold air into your freezer and then into your refrigerator area. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Condenser fan runs all the time what do I do
For model number HTS18GBSARWW
PartSelect logo
Hello Arley, Thank you for the question. A common reason a condenser fan is continually running within a refrigerator is the thermostat, PartSelect Number PS1155320. This sensor takes readings from the refrigerator (and freezer if you have one) and flips the cooling system on when it sees the temperature isn't where it needs to be. You can test the thermostat with a multi meter as well. The best way to do this is to remove the thermostat from the refrigerator so you can control the temperature of the sensor. You can let the sensor warm up to room temperature. With the sensor warmed up to room temperature the sensor should read approximately 6.2K Ohms at 68°F. With the thermistor submerged is a glass full of ice water, the sensor should be very close to 32°F which should read approximately 16.3K Ohms. If the values that you are getting are far off from these readings, then the sensor is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps, good luck with this repair!

Refrigerator makes a loud humming noise when the fan needs to go on. The fan does not spin. I think that the condenser motor is bad. I am going to check the voltage going from the motor to the fan. And also vacuum out from underneath the fridge. What do you think?Denise woods
For model number GTS18GBRERWW
PartSelect logo
Hello Denise and thank you for writing. Cleaning the coils and the compressor area is always a good idea as dust likes to collect there. The noise could be indicating a faulty condenser motor PS967022 and/or a faulty evaporator motor. Here is a link to our repair section to help you with those issues PS10063450. https://www.partselect.com/Repair/Refrigerator/Noisy/ We hope this helps. Please contact us anytime if you require further assistance.

I tested everything i could with the skills i have and didn't find anything obvious. I put it all back together and turned it on. It now sounds like the compressor came on when i adjusted the temp control but looking at the back i see the cooling fan at the bottom is not turning and just humming. When i try to turn the blades i get physical resistance. Is this a bad fan?
For model number HTS15BBMFRWW

The condenser fan motor was replaced with a genuine motor on my fridge. The issue am having now is that the motor runs constantly and never turns off. Could the motor have been installed badly which would the thermostat to malfunction ? .
For model number GTS18FBSARCC
PartSelect logo
Hello Franklyn, thank you for inquiring. It is possible an improper installation of the part could cause this issue. We do not have installation instructions for this Condenser Fan Motor for your model, but here is a link to a list of videos that may be similar: https://www.youtube.com/user/partselect/search?query=condenser+fan+motor. You may also want to consider either the Temperature Control part PS9493106 or the Defrost Timer part PS310869 as the cause of the issue. We hope this helps.
