The problem with the factory fan is that it is a sleeve-bearing fan. On average, a fan should operate for about 50,000 hours, which if it runs continuously would be over five years. However when the operating temperature rises or the fan is installed "not exactly" vertically, it will have shorter life.
\012I had to replace my fan two times withing two years since we bought the unit! Plus the stock fan becomes quite noisy after a couple of months of work.
\012With all of these problems I did some research for better fans and decided to purchase a ball-bearing fan to install it into the cooler by myself.
\012Ball-bearing fans on average outlast sleeve-bearing fans by 50 percent and produce less noise.
\012It's very important to purchase the right AC 115 Volts fan for this Danby wine cooler.
\012The original fan is Rullian Science RAL 1225S2 (120x120x25 mm in size, 100-125V AC, 0.09A)
\012The replacement model is Orion OA12AP-11-3TB which I got for $16.75 from Mouser Electronics (mouser.com). The replacement model is ball-bearing cooling fan with slightly higher/better parameters, which will help to cool down the wine cooler coil faster.
\012To replace the fan you need to tilt the wine cooler on the side and unscrew two small screws at the bottom that keep the original fan in place, remove one screw to the black box where the fan wires are attached and unplug these wires. Then you just need to replace it with the new fan and test that it works properly. If you never used Soldering Tool before you probably will be better off with getting some help from certified electrician - it still will be less expensive than getting this fan ordered every year from Danby.

Wiring I have a portable Koolatron Cooler and the fan on the motor takes a long time to start turning, the fan falls off, the fan sometimes stops turning and the motor heats up.

My Danby DFF1170W-2 top freezer refrigerator fan is no longer running. Where do I find it to replace the motor?
Sandwich/salad prep table. I think it is a 1998 unit, so it has some age but is in nice shape, like new. I need to get it working.
Doesn't cool. Compressor motor, evaporator fan motor, and condenser fan motor, all seem to be working, OK. Perimeter heater OK. Condenser coils do not get hot or even warm. What's my problem? Do I need to recharge the refridgerant? Do I need the unit tested for leaks?
Please help if you can.

I have a Kenmore refrigerator model 795.73264300 and I've been told by a service tech that I need a freezer fan motor replaced along with the ice maker. Total cost is about $400. I've been on line and found the correct fan motor for under $50 and don't care about replacing the ice maker at this point. The trouble is I'm not sure how to get to the motor. Can you provide instructions for removing the ice maker and plastic panels in the freezer compartment needed to replace the motor.

My PFS22MISBBB is 3 yrs old and is not cooling. Compressor works have external fan cooling it and this makes fridge and freezer at proper temp. Which leads on fan need 12 volts? Bought new fan motor cannot make it spin, which leads do I need to test to make sure the new motor is ok, before I replace the board, I have 13 volts coming across 3 leads( White/Pink)(White/Red)
Try the red/white leads. Actually 12 v or 13 v does not matter much at all. And also if the fan rotates other way round then change the polarity of the leads. ...

I have a samsung rs261mdwp refrigerator side by side refrigeraor. The freeer and refrigerator section are both warm. The feezer section not cold enough to make ice. Repair person indicated needed a fan motor but did not check fan motor only checked circuit board by looking at it. What could be causing the problem. At one time the refrigerator would stop cooling and then start cooling 3 or 4 days later.
I have a FRT18B4AW8. The freezer works fine but i think the fan motor is dead as the fridge does not get cold. I took the back panel off and watched the fan for a while it is not working. I also noticed some greenish corrosion on the contacts.I tried cleaning the contacts but it still doesnt work. Do I just need to replace the motor or wiring and all?

The compreesor fan motor is not turning.......it was replaced about 6 months ago.......is there a temp. sensor that controls when the fan comes on and shuts off........if it is just the motor where can I find one.
Check your condenser motor terminals for continuity. If no read then the fan motor is bad. If you do get a read then turn the motor by hand, if it is real stiff then oil it. I use zoomspout oil because it is safe for refrigeration.Check for vol ...

Evaporator motor in top compartment of a Gladiator GAFZ21XXRK00 quit working. This isn't the first time it's happened so I got another motor. Installed new motor but no change. Motor warms up at the windings and there is voltage at the wiring harness but fan does not want to kick on. I've checked for voltages at all other connections inside of the top compartment and I can't find an open anywhere. Compressor kicks on and condenser gets frosted over. Could I have a bad thermostat not driving the
Have a GE Profile PFS22MIBBB. Just replaced condenser fan motor, and main board. The control board now is working, but the fan still has not turned on after 2 hours. Is this normal, or is there something else. Condenser and coils seem pretty hot. Original problem was fridge and freezer not cooling. Placing a desk fan behind unit aimed at coils did trick, but I need my fan back.
You will need to unplug the fan and test the voltage coming from the board. You should have 12 to 13 volts DC. Unless you place a fan on condenser that blows air to keep it cool until we locate the problem the compressor can be damaged from over heat ...
