Heating, Air Conditioning, Fridge, HVAC/condensor fan out again


I have an old school Kenmore, 20 Porcelain Plus, that started not cooling about 1.5 years ago.  So i pulled it out and started looking for problems.  Noted that the condensor fan wasnt running so I placed a box fan in the back and the fridge immediately improved.

Ordered a new condensor fan online and installed it and that fixed the problem.

about 13-14 months later, condensor fan is not turning again and box fan placed behind the fridge improves it.  What gives, motor out again? If so, what can I do to prevent it from going out?  Circuit board out?  

Thanks for any help.


Not sure what controls your motor.  Please supply model number of your refrigerator and I will take a closer look at your unit and offer possible resolution...

Waiting to hear from you,
