The fan in the freezer was making a loud noise, but freezer and frig are still working & cold. Fan in freezer has stopped working completely and there is now condensation on freezer top wall. Is this just the fan? Or could it be the compressor?
Answer Txtammie, You won't need the compressor, the refrigerator is cooling, the cold air isn't being circulated, you need to get a new fan motor 63001057 installed to move the air. Also check and make sure both doors are closing and sealing all the way around the opening.
Had a repair man change the compressor on this Jenn Air refrigerator last year, he claims the compressor only has a 90 day warranty. I was wondering, the refrigerator temp alarm went off and the fan is currently running, could it be another compressor??
Answer RC, would not expect the compressor to be the issue at this point. The temperature alarm could sound for several reasons. The door may not have closed completely, The interior light may have been on because the door wasn't closed properly or the switch failed. Something on the shelves could have blocked or redirected the air flow to the thermistor, causing the alarm. The control is "looking" for a specific resistance from the thermistor, if the resistance doesn't fluctuate within the parameters after a while it will sound the temp. alarm.
What is the part no. for the compressor?
Answer Hello hippi. The compressor for a skybox is non replaceable. There is no part number available from the manufacture. Sorry.
When running is the compressor is very hot. Is this common?
Answer Hello b.johnson. Yes, it is common for the compressor to get very hot on the unit. This is why a sealed system removes heat and does not actually cool the unit. The result of removing the heat is cold temperatures.
Note: This question is for the older version of this part, but we thought you might still find it helpful
I my goal was to remove and replace the compressor, cut and sweat the lines myself, and than have someone charge the unit for me. Will this fly, or will someone refuse to fill it if they know I did the work myself?
Answer Hello Mike. We can't speak for other companies. You might want to check before doing the work. Thanks.
