Thanks Gene,

That appears to be the case as so far, so good!

Still wonder about the fans air direction, and am assuming that it correct in that it should be drawing in air from the outside?

And will an AC fan still turn only it's designed direction regardless of how it's wired to the incoming two-wire 110v AC?

And lastly, what decides the timing for the compressor (and therefore also the condenser fan) to run/cycle? Is it based solely on a timer, i.e. 5 minutes on/5 minutes off, or based on maintaining a certain temperature and will run until it's achieved and then cycle to maintain said temperature?

Thanks for all you help so far and in advance for any of these new questions you could field,

Ron

Hi Ron,

The fan direction should be viewed from rear of the motor, but you do not have to do it as long as the new motor has the same CW (or CCW) matching "stamp".

There is no polarity for 120VAC motor what means you can connect wires in any direction.

Compressor and fan motor are operated by two devices: defrost timer and temperature control. Defrost timer switches power between defrost system and cooling system (compressor, condenser fan, e.t.c.) based on time intervals i.e. 10 hours "cooling system" - 25 minutes "defrost system". While cooling system is powered "on", temperature control maintains a certain temperature by turning cooling system "on" and "off".

Gene.

Hello Gene,

Thanks a ton for the info. I would guess that the defrost time that I had to replace on this same fridge a few years back would be the device that controls that time interval. Our "no frost" freezer was frosting up and the advice at the time was to make a mark on the timer wheel and check back and see if it moved and in my case it didn't. It's the time that is located at the front left bottom.
Anyway, back to the present case at hand, I have had the back off of it and pushed out from the wall to keep an eye on things and all looks well and so I am going to button it up.
Thanks again for all your assistance and sharing of your knowledge to guys like me that have the ability to perform the task, just not the knowledge.


Ron
