Noisy fan in freezer compartment

Removed shelf by pushing to left and lifting up on RH end. Removed screws in plastic cooling tower and slid tower up. Pulled back wall of freezer compartment out, RH side first. Removed two screws from fan bracket, unplugged fan wiring harness by compressing connector spring clips and pulling joint apart. Pulled fan blade off (note location of blade on shaft for reinstall alignment purposes), removed both green grommets.Then just reinstalled new items.My philosphy on repairs of this nature is to replace all related parts that could be contributing to problem. The parts are cheap compared to the aggravation and inconvenience of doing the repair several times until you fix the problem. You don't need to purchase the compression ring if you buy the fan blade as it has one already installed on it. Problem solved, though now that the noise is gone am hearing fainter similar noises from lower fan. Should I be surprised, both fans are of similar design.

Watched a youtube on capacitors- though on a motor with a pulley, the symptoms were the same, motor running and pulley not turning-bad capacitor. Took a chance for a 17+ dollar part vs a new compressor. It worked.

Starter/overload assembly and run capacitor were bad

Googled the model number of refrigerator with symptoms of "refrigerator wont run". Parts select web site appeared on my screen, opened Parts Select website, Partselect said probable cause of my frige symptom was that the run capacitor usually burns out 51% of the time. They were correct with the diagnosis 100%. I ordered the run capacitor for $23.00, installed it in 10 minutes, refrigerator runs good as new. Thank you for saving me cost of service call. I probably saved $200 or more. I will use Partselect again with my next problem. THANK YOU,

Only took a screwdriver to take two screws out & install new slide with the two existing screws. Very easy. Took less than 5 minutes. Great website I found on Google right away, just by searching for refridgerator parts. After ordering part, only took a few days to come in.

Freezer and frig both warm and compressor would not run

I replaced the thermostat, temperature sensor, and the run capacitor...refrigerator still not cooling. I checked the start relay and measured the input terminals on the compressor for the correct resistance...everything measured correctly. In a last ditch effort before calling for service, I pulled the main board, inspected it and saw the problem right away. One leg on the compression capacitor had desoldered itself. Got out my soldering iron and applied a good amount of solder to that point. Put everything back together and turn it on...problem fixed. The compressor kicked on right away and started cooling the refrigerator.

Compressor would not run

Looking at the schematic I found in the back of the unit, it appeared that there were not many parts associated with the problem. I removed the Overload/PTC and run Capacitor as a single unit. Although the capacitor was listed as the most likely problem part I decided to order both items since small particles of non-ferous material were falling out of the Overload/PTS plastic case. I installed both parts as a unit and plugged the refrigerator in. The compressor did not come on so I figured that there were other problems. After about 15 minutes I returned to the unit and found it running. It is now quieter than it has ever been. I now feel that the defective part was the Overload/PTC unit and not the capacitor.

I started removing the switch by prying on the right side with a screwdriver, when it emerged enough I used pliers to finish removing it. I then unpluged rhe wires from the bad switch and pluged them on the new switch and "poped" it into the hole.
