do you have the exact wire replacements for this unit - there is no tech sheet anywhere and the instruction sheet with the evap fan mot. do not explain which wires to cut / replace thanks..
Answer Hello Dave B. In the kit 5303918549 there is an instruction sheet. You will need to follow these instructions. If the plug does not fit the plug in your freezer, you will cut and splice the wires with the wires in the freezer and not use the wiring harness with the fan motor. Use the three crimp connectors to put over the spliced wires. Hope this helps.
I replaced the Evaporator Motor Fan Kit and it still does not operate. I do have 120 Volts at the red/white and brown wires leading to the fan. Ground is secure. I just saw the defrost working and not sure what to do next. I also do not have any water at the door dispensor? Please help this fridge is starting to nickel and dime me.
Answer Jim, When the "ADC" advances into the defrost cycle and turns the defrost heater on, power to the evaporator fan, the condenser fan and the compressor, is bypassed, and none of these components run. once the control temp drops back in range, the compressor, evaporator fan and the condenser fan, start and run, until the selected temp. is reached, this could take as long as 40 minutes in some cases. As for the water dispenser, the weakest link, and most common issue is the water inlet valve solenoid 242252702, that may be where you want to start. Thanks
The refrigerator portion does not cool properly. I'ts been really really hot and I noticed the freezer was set on MAX. Even though the unit thermostat works properly and is set on COLDEST. Would the fact that the damper is almost shut be the culprit? I tested the thermostat and defrost timer and both checked out OK. Thanks!
Answer Hello Bruce,
The fact that the freezer is on max is why the fresh food section is warm. You see, the max setting on the freezer prevents air to flow as needed into the fresh food section. Think of it this way, the fresh food control is the electrical control which turns the compressor and fans on and off as needed. The freezer control is an air flow adjustment which controls how much cold from the freezer section is allowed to pass into the fresh food section.
Another factor to consider is that the units are designed to operate at maximum efficiency when in room temperature,(70°F to 80°F). You see, refrigeration doesn't make cold. It removes heat. The heat it removes is carried to the hot coils outside of the unit to be dissipated back into the room. When the hot coils are in an environment that is as hot or hotter than the coils, the unit cannot dissipate the heat, so the inside of the unit cannot get any cooler. This causes long run times and will prevent the interior from ever satisfying the thermostat.
When my freezer is freezing like it should, but the refrigerator is not getting cold what could that be?
Answer Hello Robert. You will need to check and see if the evaporator fan motor 5303918549 is running and moving the cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator. If not, replace the fan motor in the unit. Hope this helps.
I have purchased the Electrolux Evaporator Motor Fan Kit replacement, model 5303918549 for my Frigidaire. All of the wires are the same except that the new model has a yellow wire and a black wire. The old model features a dark blue and a brown wire. I don't know exactly what to do with these different colored wires. Please help.
Answer Hi Nat. The new one has a black and a yellow wire. The black is hot and connects to the brown wire or red/ wht stripe. The yellow wire hooks to the blue neutral color wire. The wiring diagram we have is rather very blotchy and is hard to compute. You need to find your original diagram in the tech. sheet folded in the control area or behind the front kick plate. This way you can be positive. In a A.C. circuit the positive and the negative physically changes cycles back and forth 60x/second so as long as you hook the green wires together and ground on the chassis frame, you should be OK. Thank You.
