Universal 20cm fan suitable for use with fan motor MF53103

This fan can be used on many fridge freezer fan motors but is specifically designed for use with the fan motor shown.

   Fridge Freezer Fan Motors

Fridge freezer and freezer fan motors are used essentially for two separate purposes, one to cool the compressor and for domestic frost free fridge freezers more commonly to drive air across the freezer evaporator to freeze the food in a frost free fridge freezer. Very often in fridge freezers, especially American style fridge freezers, this cold air will be diverted into the fridge to also chill the fridge.

  Compressor Cooling Fan Motors

These fan motors are mounted at the rear near the compressor or motor which will look like a black bottle. If these motors are faulty the compressor can be allowed to overheat and fail so it is essential that these fan motors, if faulty, are replaced as quickly as possible to prevent the failure of the compressor.

Often these fan motors can also become noisy and give off a rattling noise.

  Frost Free Fan Motors

These are much more common in domestic fridge freezers and frost free freezers and are normally small fan motors mounted in the freezer (or at least the fan will be) to blow air across the freezer evaporator which is often referred to as the cooling element, to force freezing air into the freezer compartment.

If these fan motors should fail you will get poor cooling or no cooling in the freezer normally however they are also susceptible to becoming noisy as well, often giving a rattling noise or drumming noise. As this is really the only moving part in many fridge freezers if you do have a noise problem this would be where to start looking for an issue.

However, noise can be caused by over freezing and ice build up so do please be sure to fully investigate any issues to find the cause of the problem. More help with this and understanding frost free refrigeration can be found in our guide to understanding frost free refrigeration available from this link and also in this article that explains the basics.

A basic fridge freezer, fridge and freezer fault finding guide can be found here.

Universal Spare Parts

Universal spare partsUniversal spare parts are generic and designed to fit as many different models as possible as well as normally offering a cheaper alternative to original spare parts. However, they will not satisfy all applications and they often will also require some DIY skill when replacing.

They are incredibly handy though, especially when you're in a spot with no other option and why that many (if not most) of these spares will be found on almost every appliance technician's van stock.

The reasons for this are fairly self-evident, they fit a huge number of products, often tens of thousands of models and they tend to be really cheap. But most can be modified or tinkered about with to replace a myriad of far more costly spare parts so, for field tech looking to make a bit extra even although they spend more time doing this, it's a no-brainer for them.

That's all fine if you have a bit of skill or are prepared to spend the time on working out how to utilise a universal spare part and you, of course, want to save money.

The reason we tell people as openly and honestly this is that we don't want people thinking that a universal part will be an exact like-for-like swap as often times it won't be. On many occasions it is but we like to let you know what you're getting into, unlike many retailers.

  Delivery

We are going to get any part/s you order to you as fast as we possibly can.

We use a variety of means to do that but we also give you, the customer, the choice of how fast you want the transit time to be as well as the features and convenience levels that suit you on delivery so, there are options. There is a lot of information here on how we do this and explanation of the choice you have as well as the impact of each in speed and cost as we are very open and transparent.

Orders placed outwith our normal business hours will not be shipped until the next working day and subject to stock availability. Please be aware that we show availability and that we do not display live stock levels online.

What we do is give an average here based on where parts are and typically take to ship as well as an average of transit times based on how people order parts so these can vary depending largely on the shipping method that we allow you to select depending on your own individual needs.

The estimated normal time that an item will take to reach you (excluding weekends and public holidays) is indicated on every listing at the top of the listing in orange with the truck next to it, an explanation of these is as follows:

1 to 6 Days: Normally a UK stock item and usually dispatched the same or next working day but some items may take a little longer depending on where the stock is.

1 to ** Days: Usually a UK/EU stocked item but may have a longer lead time, for clarification of the time please contact us before ordering and we will advise further if required.

* to ** Days: Variable lead times that are based on normal order supply times, often parts that do not have a “1 to“ at the start will ordinarily be factory or custom order items and we would ask that you please allow the time indicated for your order to arrive with you. Please note that these items are specially ordered upon request that is not normally stocked therefore cannot be ordinarily returned, this does not affect your statutory rights.

Again, please note that your chosen delivery method may affect the delivery time to both shorten and lengthen that delivery time and that these estimates apply to UK mainland orders only. The faster delivery method that you choose, the lower on that estimated delivery time you will likely receive the items ordered.

If you need clarification or a more accurate lead time please contact us for assistance on that and we will do our utmost to provide that as our estimated lead times are based on normal stock availability, average lead times, average shipping times and this can vary depending on shipping methods etc.

Our standard delivery charges are quoted online when you place an order on the checkout page and are determined by weight, size and method so can alter based on those parameters.

Our estimated delivery times do not apply to international or offshore orders, only to UK mainland addresses and that delivery times to more rural areas may vary depending on the service used.

Delivery times can vary at times of very high volumes, such as Christmas period and also due to bad weather etc and at such times deliveries, regardless of service used, may not happen as normal.

  Order Transit Times

If the item you have ordered is in stock and the order is placed before 3.00pm Monday to Friday then we will endeavour to dispatch the order on the same day. Subsequent delivery times are usually between 1-3 working days dependant on the service you have chosen, the time your order is placed and stock availability.

If an item is required for a guaranteed next day delivery please contact us in advance to check that this is possible

Please note that the times given can be subject to availability, however, more than 98% of all orders are delivered on or faster than the estimated times.
