There are some wiring diagrams at this link. With our GE there was a wiring diagram in a plastic bag behind the back panel in the freezer where the evaporator is.

SOURCE: ge after replace fan still fan not working

Something to check for. Is the top of the refrigerator door lower than the freezer door? If so the ref. light may not be turning off all the time. Pull bottom panel off to expose hinges. The ref hinge should have an adjuster. Adjust door up to be level with freezer.

SOURCE: Freezer

If the freezer is in defrost then the freezer fan should be off. Only on the electronic will the freezer fan come on in defrost but the freezer door has to be held open for 3 min before the fan comes on

SOURCE: GE Refrigerator Compressor Inop.

I found this post by searching on the capacitor number, JSU21X126AQC. My 2001 Kenmore refrigerator (don't have model# here) compressor didn't run, but I heard it hum for a few seconds and then a click. That's the Klixon overload doing its job. I measured resistance of the compressor leads same as original poster. This lead me to determine that the windings were not open or shorted. The wiring to the compressor also fed the condenser fan, and it was running, so power was at least all the way to the compressor.
What I did find was that the 12uF capacitor was only 4uF. My digital volt meter has a capacitor check range. This compressor circuit is a permanent split capacitor type. Without the proper capacitance, the compressor can't start. I replaced it with a 10uF, 220v AC capacitor I had, and now it runs fine. I wonder how many refrigerators are scrapped because of this inexpensive problem?

SOURCE: GE REFRIGERATOR FAN AND COMPRESSOR DOES NOT WORK, BUT LIGHTS TURN ON.

  • Unplug the power cord of the refrigerator
  • Locate the fan plug (usually next to the water valve), unplug it
  • Try to spin the fan blade by your finger, if it has too much friction, lube it with small motor oil (sewing machine oil etc)
  • Clean up all accumulated dust.
  • Plug it back, it should work (fan motor is thermally protected so it won't burn out)

My dog ate the cord to the fan I need to know how to replace the old with a new one


Hi mlh9188

You can replace your cord that was eaten by your dog very easy.
Disassemble your fan.
Be sure to mark how the fan is assembled with an awl or sharp instrument to scratch an alignment scratch on the outside of the motor case before you disassemble it....maybe even take a picture
Once you have the fan disassembled to the point that you can get to where the wire that was chewed is connected to the fan, you will disconnect the wires from the plugs,sockets,etc...take another picture before disassembly.
Take the old cord with you down to your local hardware store,loews,homedepot,ace hardware,etc.
Tell the person in the electrical dept what happened, and he will fix you up with a new set up.
Come home install the new cord and plug...keep away from dog...

How to replace the condensor fan on GE Mod.gdl20kcsabs --bottom freezer


How To Replace the Condenser Fan The condenser fan is located behind the refrigerator. It may be necessary to remove an access panel to reach it.
If the fan blade is damaged, it can be removed from the fan motor and replaced separately.
Caution:Please read our safety information before attempting any testing or repairs.
cautiontri.gif Before replacing the condenser fan, unplug the refrigerator to avoid an electrical shock hazard.

The fan motor is held in place with screws and possibly a mounting bracket. Remove the bracket and the screws and pull the motor back away from the housing.
The fan motor is connected by two or three wires. Label the wire placement on the motor before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected to the terminals with slip-on connectors or a plug. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.


Remove the fan blade from the old motor and install it onto the new motor. Connect the wires to the new motor and install the motor into the bracket or housing. Make certain that all of the screws are tightened securely.
Replace the access cover (if any) and plug in the refrigerator.

Our dog chewed through the wires that i believe run to the thermostat, tried to reconnect the wires and still not running, also tried new fuses and still nothing, just wondering if another part needed to...


shorting the wires usually just blows the fuse on the control board in the inside unit. BUT there is a chance the contactor coil was shorted out as well. Will the inside fan come on if placed in the ON position but the system switch in OFF ? If not check the transformer in the cabinet of inside unit.

The dog chewed the wiring to the condesor outside. i re wired and now the furnace turns on but not the a/c unit ouside?


Hi, well you have 1/2 of it right. Recheck the wiring and wire it color to color as you are not getting 24 volts to the condenser. If you have a gas furnace and not a heat pump you will only need 2- wires to run the outdoor unit, red and yellow. Make sure the dog didn't chew through another section also.

It's cold out, and my Central Air kicks on every time my furnace kicks in. I get heat, but don't think my outside unit (fan) should be kicking in each time my furnace kicks on. Suggestions


Hi, If you have what is called a heat pump, the outdoor unit is supposed to run. It has a reversing valve which reverses the flow of refrigerant and the indoor unit becomes the condenser and the outdoor becomes the evaporator coil. Now, if you don't have a heat pump and the furnace is gas fired, then the control wiring or thermostat is calling for both to come on. Control wiring has to be touching together somewhere and bringing on both. Look over the exposed stat wire outside if you have a dog that may have chewed the wires, I have seen this happen. If all wiring looks good, then the stat is faulty and must be replaced. Make sure you don't have a heat pump first, as the fan, compressor, and all will run on heat and cooling. I hope this will solve you're problem, please let me know, I would like to hear back. Sincerely,

1991 Whirlpool M/N ET18RKXYW00 refrigerator w/icebox no longer keeps items cold. Selector controls are maxed out. I know I'm pushing it as far as the age of the fridge, but we store our water, pop, etc....


the condenser fan motor is probably the cause of the failure. is this unit in the garage? if so, mice have figured out the defrost pan is a good source of water and have either gotten there heads stuck in fan blade or have chewed the wires going to the fan motor. there is a cardboard cover over the compressor and condenser motor behind unit. remove it and check it out!

Goodman GMP75... keeps blowing fuses only in A/C mode. Only when I connect yellow wire from thermostat to line going to condenser contactor (24V side).


Are you talking about the small 3 or 5 amp fuse in the furnace? If you are then the control voltage circuit to the condenser is shorted, Maybe dogs or rodents chewing it or the insulation is cut by a sharp piece of metal. Sometimes the contactor will go bad and cause the small fuse in furnace to blow. Look for the simple things first, like control wires shorted. Make sure the yellow wire from the thermostat goes to the outside unit and not to the common.

No spark


If the dog chewed up the coil wire you will need a new coil. How did the dog GET to the wiring? Did you let the dog live? The wires are color coded. Splice the wires color to color. Depending on how badly the dog tore up the wires, you may want to get a new, (or used) wiring harness and re-wire the bike following the pattern of the existing wiring.
