How often should the fan down below in the back be running? What would happen if it was not running?
Answer Hello Greg. If the compressor is running,the fan motor should be running. If not, it will cause the unit not to cool properly.
New fan motor different from one in the picture. How to install new fan motor
with the 3 metal brackets, 3 rubber pieces?
Answer Hello A. The three metal brackets insert into the slots for the old fan motor and attach on the other end to the new fan motor in the kit 12002738. The rubber pieces are bushings to prevent vibration and noise and insert into the slots the brackets go into.
How hot is the compressor suppose to get? Warm to the touch or too hot to touch?
Answer Hi Tracy. The compressor should only get warm to the touch as if you can stand to lay your hand on it for 10-20sec. It should not fry an egg.... Improper air flow is a very common failure if the condenser fan is stopped or not up to speed. Part # 12002738. If the condenser coils are stopped up, then take a shop vac and coil brush part #TJ103 to clear so the freon does not boil. This will overheat a compressor as well. If the back is dirty... Thank You.
