Repair was rather simple. Removed the appropriate shelves and to make it easy to get to. Removed the ice container. I had to remove several items to get to the evaporator fan. Removed the ice dispenser motor cover, air duct cover, and the evaporator orifice cover. After all was removed the fan assembly was still attached to the orifice cover by the evaporator fan bracket. Remove bracket to remove the fan motor and assembly. Replace the all the old parts with the new and start the reassembly process. Really the only difficult part was working in such a small area. Good luck.
