I Removed the drawers from the freezer compartment. Removed the ice maker, 3 screws. Removed the plastic vent cover, and steel panel on back of the freezer. Unplugged the wires for the fan motor. Removed the fan motor. The new motor was a replacement part. It looked different but it worked. Added a ground wire, as per instructions I replaced the motor, and reassembled the few parts that were removed. It really went well. No problems. Saved a lot of money by fixing it myself. It's working great. I got it fixed for about $40.00 I hat to think what it would have cost if I would have taken it to a repair shop.
