First I tried to remove the plastic cowling surrounding the evaporator fan, but I just couldn't get all of the fasteners to let go. So, I removed all of the screws that held in the back of the freezer compartment. Once the back was loose, I was able to tilt it forward and then remove the fan cowling. The fan motor was then easy to remove and replace. (I verified that the motor was the problem by checking the voltage in the blue and white wires that feed the motor - the voltage was at zero when the refrigerator temperature switch was set to zero, but went to 120V when I moved the switch above the zero position.) I then replaced the back of the freezer compartment and the refrigerator is cold as it ever was.

We only knew what the problem was from a repair tech coming out. He was cool so he told us to order the part ourselves and install it. Easy as pie! A plug in part. We saved over $150.00 bucks doing it ourselves!

I replaced the broken end caps by inserting the new ones into the ends of the retaining bar and then inserted the entire piece into the slots of the refrigerator where the bars were missing because the end caps weren't holding the retaining bar and I had to place them in a safe place outside of the refrigerator. Too easy. I'm just glad it was such an easy fix. I'm thankful for this site, the value was great, service quick and my life is now a little easier.
