Refrigerator would stay cool but not as cold as it should have and freezer would not freeze ice solid even at high setting. Possible surge but power did not go off or breaker pop. Motor sounds absolutely normal. Only other symptom is narrow piece between freezer and refrigerator on front is very hot. I was advised to check the condenser fan. That if it was not running but getting voltage the fan should be replaced. It is not running and will check voltage in the morning. By replacing the fan I assume that is the motor shown as 11 on the unit parts list for this model. Need further advice. This is located in a cabin at a remote location and getting it where a repairman could come is not that simple.

Yes, that is the condenser fan motor but first make sure nothing is impeding the fan blade from turning... I've found many things from foam 'popcorn' to 'petrified critters' stuck in fan blades which would not be uncommon in a cabin... And do obtain a thermometer to check temps; eliminates the guesswork... cheers - kooler
