I took the rear panel part-way off (it appears that the panel will not come off completely unless the ice-maker water line is disconnected. I didn't bother with that.) Removed the fan/motor bracket and detached the fan/motor. I simply cut the wires to the motor. I took the fan off and installed it on the new motor. I connected the new motor to the bracket and sliced the wires using wire nuts. Reinstalled everything and the motor works fine now.
