The evaporator gan motor would work sometimes, but not always, so it took a while to be sure this was the problem. First ruled out thermostat and defrost timer. Also observed build up of ice on coils, so I knew compressor was working. Once I isolated problem to evaporator fan ( by observing stuck once, and seeing how it didn't spin freely) replacement was easy. In fact, since we were able to keep the unit running by watching the old fan and ensuring it was working while waiting for the new one to arrive, I was able to swap them out, plug unit back in and start it up before the ice in the bin even had time to melt! This repair saved me hundreds in repairs, and even more if I had to buy a new fridge, because the new units are too tall for my kitchen space.

The video explains it well, however, for those with the built-in model, the one with the wood panels, things are a bit different. Thanks to another writer, I received help. After you unscrew and remove the two side metal décor strips from the freezer, you are left with how to remove the no-screws décor ice/water panel. It does NOT slide out. You must carefully bend the panel out and away from its top and bottom tracks. I do wonder why not just make it slide out, but no such luck. Be careful not to over bend. However, once you begin bending from the middle out, it will become clear to you how its going to come out. Also, with this panel removed, and left hanging there, it is not necessary to unplug any of those electrical connects. The only electrical work is removing the light from the control bracket you are replacing, as shown in the video. I found bending the décor panel back in place was easier than pulling it out. Be sure to unplug the unit. Plug found at top of refrigerator behind very top wood panel. You will need to easily remove this very top wood panel, and you will need a step ladder to reach plug.

I ordered a new micro switch to do the repair. When I took face plate off the front of door two pieces of broken plastic fell out. Those pieces were part of what holds the switch in place, I need to order that part but I was able to use small tie wraps to hold switch in place and it has been working for a week now. The videos on this site are very helpful and gave me confidence to do the repair.

I had already removed the ice container & realized the very end of the auger (drum) was broken. I still don't know why this part is plastic. I ordered the auger drum on Monday & received the part Wednesday morning by Fedex. I then retrieved your repair video by Steve on-line and paused it as I duplicated each step. The process was really very easy (I even surprised myself). The unit now works as it did when new. To think I went for over a month and the repair was so simple and inexpensive. Thanks also to your customer service rep who put my mind at ease that this was the correct part (My auger was totally plastic & different from the one in the illustration). He said if my model number said this part would fit, then it would and it did.
