Question about Kenmore 64802 Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

My refrigerator (64802) is in our basement and the basement was flooded with 2 feet of water. I dried the motor area with a squirrel cage fan for 2 hours. Disinfected inside and out with bleach water. Plugged it in and turned it on. The motor started running and made a "clicking noise" about 5 or 6 times. The motor was actually turning on and off while this "clicking noise" was happening. After 5 or 6 "clicking noise", the motor has been running for the past 30 minutes. Is there anything wrong with it, or is this normal?

Your refrigerator could not be rescued from drowning. Two feet of water did it in.

It is the Freezer Fan, he ice maker fan. I experienced the same conditions of a two year period. The tech allows said either unplug overnight. I as you couldn't take the noise. Oh by the way it will be getting worse!!! The solution replace the Freezer Fan motor.it cost about $78.00 plus shipping. they are located behind the freezer rear wall. They are very labor intensive to replace because the electrical leads are attached just out of reach. I have a 33" arm and I had to act like a contortionist to unplug them.

Where is the fan motor located on a ford f150?


I assume it is the HVAC fan and the motor is attached to the squirrel cage.

Why does my ac freeze up


Hello, air conditioners will freeze either due to low airflow.....such as dirty filter, dirty evaporator coil, weak or not running blower motor. Also, a low refrigerant charge can cause the unit to freeze up.

Ac squirrel cage fan motor noise


Could be bearings going out, or a squirrel cage rubbing the blower housing, a squirrel cage blade that came loose, or a capacitor.

How do I clean a Hawaiian Breeze tower fan?


Unplug fan. Lay the fan face down. Remove the four screws holding the stand to the base. Slide the stand all the way off the cord. Look at bottom of fan and find the small half circle indent just to left of center. There is a screw there, remove it. Go to the hand grip at the top of the back and pry out the two white rubber plugs to reveal two more screws, remove them. Back cover can now slide downward. May take a little squeezing at the center of the grille where internal clip is. Remove two screws at top of squirrel cage. Turn squirrel cage and loosen screw at bottom collar on motor shaft. Tilt the top of the squirrel cage outward slightly and slide upward to remove the squirrel cage. You can slip upper metal bracket off and set aside. Motor is held in by two screws, remove them and flip motor out of the way. There are two screws below where motor sat that hold in base of front grille, remove. Front grille has a series of clips along edges, carefully pry them inward from bottom to top and push grille gently outwards. You can now clean the rear grille, front grille and squirrel cage in warm soapy water and allow to dry. While they are drying, use a vacuum and dust rags to clean interior. When parts are dry, reinstall front grille and reinstall 2 screws. Reinstall motor with two screws. Turn motor shaft so flat notch is pointing up. Recommend to spray a tiny bit of WD-40 or a tiny dab of moly grease on shaft at top of squirrel cage, then replace upper bearing bracket on top shaft. Slide collar end of squirrel cage onto motor shaft and align screw with shaft flat and tighten. Reinstall two screws at bracket at top of squirrel cage. Align back cover just a bit toward bottom, then slide upward and clips will snap into place. Reinstall two screws in hand hold area, then reinstall screw at bottom of cover at half circle notch. You'll need either a magnetic tip screwdriver or a pair of long needle-nosed pliers to get screw in hole before tightening. Feed cord back through base and reinstall 4 screws. It took me about half an hour to do this whole process on each of my two Hawaiian Breeze fans, but they now look brand new and run very quiet.

I want to clean the squirl cage fan on my Carrier handler. It's 12 years old and never really been cleaned. What is the best cleaning procedure to maximize its efficiency.


The best way to really clean the squirrel cage is to remove the entire indoor blower motor housing assembly out of the furnace then remove the squirrel cage from the motor shaft and pressure wash the squirrel cage. Make sure you don't use to much water pressure as you might knock off any balancing weights that may be attached to the one or more of the vanes. Make sure the cage is completely dry before you re-install it back on the motor shaft.

Refrigerator was in the basement with 6" of water....


The electric parts that got wet will need to be dried out. Try putting a flood light etc. shining on the bottom for a few days to see if it will dry it out, then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start. Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay.
Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm

Running not blowing air


sounds as if fan isnt attached to motor shaft. There is a set screw on the fan cage that if it loosens the shaft will turn inside of the fan not turning the fan( also known as a squirrel cage) You need to get access to the fan motor and see first if its shaft is rotating, if it is see if the squirrel cage is turning if not the set screw located on the inner collar of the squirrel cage needs to be tightened. Thie set screw is more than likly an allen set screw.

Volume of air coming from a/c ducts is very slight


sounds like a bad blower resistor-thats why you have no speeds 1,2 or 3. the resistor will either be near the blower motor(the squirrel cage u spoke about) OR under the dash on the passenger side just above wher the passengers feet would be.it will have usually 2 screws holding it in and wires going to it.
