Fridge stopped freezer - maybe?
Model Number: AFD2535DES Brand:
1 - 5 years
so I came home today to panic - the fridge was warm, Freezer may or may not be working.
so first i vacuumed out the coils. Plugged it in - the compressor seems to run. So I took off the panel inside the freezer to get to the condensor (I'm guessing at these terms - the radiator in the back of the freezer - behind the panel).
So after it was warm dry and clean, I plugged it back in - within 5 minutes frost is forming on the fins - I think that is good. The fan started (I gave it a little push) and it continues to run - but I'm not sure how fast it is supposed to run - seems slow to me - like maybe 100 rpm - slow and weak enough that my fingers are in no danger! I put a volt meter on it - and where the fan harness plugs into the rest of the electrical harness, it is reading 120 volts.
The fan however - the fan motor is vibrating, visibly harmonically shaking - moving a good 1/16 of an inch side to side - maybe an 1/8 of an inch.
So whats next?
