I think spent more time removing the frozen food and cleaning the bottom of the freezer compartment than actually changing the fan.
it came in one well constructed assembly, fan motor and bracket - an exact match for the existing part. I did not have an ice maker to remove so the steps were pretty simple.
1) Remove ice cube tray holder
2) Remove about 8 screws that hold the condenser cover plate
3) Remove two screws that hold the bracket (fan is attached to bracket)
4) Pull bracket away and remove two green ground wire tabs
5) Remove power connector
6) Clip wire ties from bracket that hold power cable
7) Remove old part
8) Reverse procedure
The old part had some built in wire tie holders that held the power cable away from the fan. I had no problem using a normal wire tie to tie it out of the way. You can probably just fed it around without a wire tie and achieve the same results.
All in all a real easy job. I'd say the job was easier than replacing a door knob, but harder than putting on new wiper blades.
Should be no problem for someone with average handy man skills.
