(I posted this in refrigeration and ice making as well)
I got a call from a friend who wanted some phone technical support from me to troubleshoot his GE PDS22MISABB refrigerator.
I was an appliance repair tech. some 25 years ago, but am now behind the curve.
As I walked him through what to check we found out that the condenser fan motor doesn't turn while the compressor is running.
He said it is a 12 volt DC fan motor with three conductors. I've never heard of such a configuration on a refrigerator. He said two of the conductors have 12 volts DC, but the third conductor doesn't register anything.
So my question is: What's up with the DC, 3 conductor fan motor? Is it a variable speed motor?
Thanks in advance.
