Ice built up on the condenser fan bracket (has done this several times, suspect it's from the ice maker water supply) so as usual I attempted to chip it away from the fan. here lies the problem, It was 3 in the morning and the fan started it's loud noise hitting the ice, so instead of unplugging the frig I just chipped the ice away, while doing so one of the prongs power or ground (suspect power) touched the metal cover plate and the fan stopped working. go figure, the 1/8th inch space from the prong to the wire connect had to touch the metal.
Anyway damage done - I have checked the ohms on the fan = ok (0) and used a standard old extension cord missing the female end (loose wires) to power the fan = fan works ok.
Checked the power supply to the fan (frig harness) and only have 106 volts not the 110 I was expecting.....Any ideas on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.
