Samurai Appliance Repair Man,

The limiter in my freezer is NOT busted open. Unfortunately, I don't have a meter to check it.

If I order that part from you and it doesn't fix the problem, what then?

How much is the part and how quickly would I get it from you?


Yeah, I'm running now. My evaporator fan tested good when given the appropriate ammount of power, but wasn't spinning when wired into the fridge like it's supposed to, so that pretty much only leaves the defrost thermostat thingy that I also posted a picture of.


By the way, these things appear to only have two fans. The one in the back, and the one inside (evaporator fan). The evaporator fan is the one visable in my pictures. You can test it by giving it 120 volts of AC power. Basically, you can plug it directly into the power of a regular wall outlet. There is a high chance of electrocuting yourself setting this up, so be careful. I'm not sure how smart it is to test it this way, but I found (by accident) that you can also test the fan by removing the brown wire from the terminal on the fan and then touching that terminal to a ground source with the fridge plugged in. Basically you remove the brown wire from the fan and plug in a green one. Then plug the fridge in and see if the fan spins. I also accidentally touched the exposed end of the brown wire to a ground source as well, which produced a shower of sparks, a blown fuse and a very scared wife and dog. You can actually see in that close up picture were I did it, it's left a nice little burn pattern on the exposed metal of the evaporator fan bracket. Don't do that, I don't recommend it.
