Followed your video. In addition, put a couple wrappings of blue painter's tape around crusher knife assembly before removing nylon nut. Removed & replaced from shaft, as a single unit. Also, as I removed each screw, I put it back into the hole, and put a small piece of tape over the head, to keep the correct screw with the correct part. Yes, bending the plastic to remove the crusher unit took a lot of patience. Probably added half hour to the job.

Because of the socket design a bulb with a slender shoulder design is necessary for replacement. Replaced with the original equipment type with no problems. Just a matter of using a little finesse with the tips of your fingers to get the bulb lined up properly with the socket then turning until finger tight.

Parts were perfect. Shipment great. It took a bit of time to get back to the Evaporator fan, so i basically had to take the entire freezer apart. Not a problem. The one issue i ran into was my unit had 2 white wires which connected to a silver bullet thing, that were not included in the wiring harness. Maybe I could have ordered that part (thinking out loud) I had to cut the old one apart, and adapt them into the new one, which had 2 holes to spare for this purpose. I guess i could have spliced every wire, but didn't. The freezer now SOUNDS LIKE A FREEZER. Thanks,

  • Customer: Peter from Saint Cloud FL
  • Difficulty: Really easy

  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I decided to replace motor and fan, having previously altered/trimmed the fan which stopped the howling but caused a vibration. Unplug from mains. Clear out two top shelves in freezer. Remove light cover. Remove two screws(1/4 driver)at top of steel panel in rear of compartment and let it drop. Remove two screws above light. Pry up section above light/fan housing to access two screws retaining the light/fan assembly, loosen screws sufficiently so that assembly can be lifted and removed. Disconnect wiring plug by pinching in the sides of the plug and pulling out. Pull fan off motor shaft. Remove two screws clamping motor. Cut cable tie and molded wiring grommet to free wiring. The existing light wires can be removed from the old plug by carefully cutting around the old plug to free the pins and then pushing the pins into the new plug. Reverse procedure to assemble.
