Remove the styrafoam duct by pulling it straight up and out. Remove the back wall of the freezer by removing the 4 philips head screws. Unplug fan. Remove the fan, bracket and all, by removing the two philips head screws on the back wall. Take the two halves of the bracket appart by removing the two hex head scews on the back of the bracket. Remove the "O" ring from the fan blade and remove the blade. There is a rubber grommet on both the front and back halves of the bracket. Make sure they are set properly in the brackets to secure and position the motor properly so the fan blade doesn't hit anything when it spins. Install the new motor onto the bracket the same way you took the old one off. Check the positions of the brackets, rubber grommets and motor to make sure they're properly installed and secure. Replace the "O" ring onto the fan blade and install it onto the new motor with a firm push on the center of the blade. Install the brackets and fan onto the back wall and plug in the new motor. Reinstall the back wall of the freezer box and make sure the motor is secure. Plug the refrigerator back in and check to make sure the fan blade doesn't hit anything while it's turning. Finish reassembling the freezer box.
