First I unplugged the refrigerator. I removed the freezer drawer and shelf. ice maker and then the air duct. The air duct was a little difficult as it is held in with plastic tabs that have to be pried with a screw driver with care as to not over stress the part. I was then able to remove the back panel with the nut driver. This exposed the fan motor on its bracket. The new motor was a retrofitted part from the original. However following the supplied directions it was quite easy to change out and to make the new wire connections. After making sure that everything was clear from the fan I plugged the refrigerator in to check the operation of the motor. It worked perfectly. I then unplugged the fridge and replaced the back panel, duct. ice maker, shelve and drawer. The fridge now works better than it ever has and we had to readjust the temperature control as it was a little hard to the lettuce. I found PartsSelect very good to deal with. Sears told us the part was back ordered and we would be without our fridge for a month, not acceptable at all. PartSelect had the part and at a better price. And we had the unit running again in a couple of days. I am very satisfied with the experience.
