Monogram Frig maintainance?
« on: October 05, 2010, 10:50:44 PM »
This site is awesome. Have a LG frig that got fixed with help from this site. Thank you!
I also have a GE monogram frig (couldnt find the model number) but its a big two door side by side.  I noticed that its running where you can hear the motor or fan more often. Everything works well just the motor/fan running more.
My question is:
1. if there is anything I should be concerned about the motor running.
2. is there any maintainance I can do? ie: dust off the condenser? and how?  I cant pull the frig out and it seems that all items are on the top but how do I do this?
3. I have 1 month left on my home warranty...should I call for a repair in regards to the fan/motor running?

Clean the dust around the condenser and it won't have to work as hard at keeping the innards cool.

could this be done without pulling the frig out? I dont have the model number since i cant find it on the frig but is there a manual for placement of the condenser and area that needs to be cleaned? Sorry, newbie.

The Monogram has a removeable  plate on the top that lifts off, revealing the condenser coils and compressor area. No tools required...grab your vacuum and go for it. Nothing on this  built-in requires it to be  pulled out, thank goodness. The components are designed to be serviced from the front.

Usually applies to ZIS models but you failed to  provide the required model number...
