Cleaning and Replacing The Condenser Fan in Refrigerators
Refrigerator Repair Replacing the Condenser Fan Motor Kit.
If your condenser fan stops, the temperature of the refrigerant will rise and the compressor may overheat
A condenser fan is used on frost-free refrigerators that have a condenser coil in the bottom of the cabinet, inside the compressor compartment. The fan runs whenever the compressor runs, and it draws cool room air through the front grille, and circulates it through the condenser coils, over the compressor, and back out the front grille into the room. The circulating air helps cool the compressor and the refrigerant in the condenser coils. The air also helps evaporate the water in the drain pan.
Clean the Condenser Coil on a Refrigerator
Clean off the condenser coils every 6 months.
Condenser coils are responsible for removing heat from refrigerators and freezers. They are the large, radiator like coils located at the back or beneath the unit. When dust and dirt cling to the coils, it’s harder for the refrigerator to remove heat. The result is increased energy consumption. Without regular cleaning, this can lead to problems and costly repairs. Cleaning the condenser fan is easy. We use a soft brush and remove the dust from the entire unit, and thoroughly vacuum the area. While doing this we explain how cleaning the fan a few times a year will extend the life of their compressor and refrigerator, and decrease the number of times they need a technicians. Most of our clients did not even realize they could remove the back panel and clean the dust and pet hair from the condenser fan.
