Despite attempts to quiet the 2 year old fan, I went ahead and replaced it. Part Select was prompt with a new one at my door less than 24 hours. It was just the fan motor, so took a couple extra steps to place it in the metal housing, but no problems and though the frig still makes noises, it's not coming from the fan as before.

First I removed the left condensor fan motor bracket nut, loosened the right motor bracket, dropped the moter bracket down freeing the motor from the rubber grommets.
Pulled the fan off from the motor shaft, pressed the new fan on the shaft and installed new grommets. Replaced the motor bracket and tightened the right bracket nut and checked fan for clearance and free spin. Reinstaled the left bracket nut. Turned on the refrigerator and checked fan for action. Everything worked great.
I did not know the fan replacement came with a compression ring already installed, so now I have an extra compression ring.

The evap fan, based on research, appears to be built to only last a few years. Pay attention to your order of removal for all pieces and it will go back rather easily in reverse.Remove items from freezer. UNPLUG FREEZER. Pop out the shelf. Use screwdriver to remove plastic piece in back. Pop out styrofoam piece. Use screwdriver to remove back metal section of freezer. Use nutdriver to remove screws holding the fan to the back. Unplug the motor. Pop off the fan. Pay attention to location of all these pieces. Put them on the new motor. Reassemble in reverse. Piece of cake.

Difficulty in removing the old switch

  • Customer: James from Federal Way, AL
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set
  • 3 of 4 people found this instruction helpful
The old switch was hard to remove. Thinking that I may have to loosen the wires I used a socket wrench to remove a clamp. This was unnecessary. In the end the switch did come out using a large size screwdriver. The problem was that the expanding plastic tongue is not visible from the ouside so you have to try to feel your way around. If i had ordered the replacement before and not afterwards I would have seen this before hand.

My repair was simple. Just put the shelf in the holes in the freezer. The AMAZING thing was how quickly I recieved the part after placing my order. I placed the order at about 3:30 pm on a friday checked the box for ground shipping and the part was at my door the next morning. I think that was a mistake, but I was impressed.

I ordered 2 end caps just to keep one as spare. Turned out I had ordered a size larger than the one already on the refrigerator. So I replaced both ends and it worked fine - with increased shelf space. Now I can even fit a gallon container with ease!!! Took about 20 seconds. I just wish there was an easier way to measure parts before ordering. Otherwise, the entire process from order to finish took about 3 days.

I didn't know if I could get a replacement part, but I googled "replacement parts" (or some such), and since this website looked easy to navigate, chose it. (Actually, I did my ordering via telephone). The sales rep. helped me clarify which part I needed, I ordered it, and received the part the very

I simply snapped the two end pieces into place, attaching the guard rail. It was like putting the pieces of a very easy puzzle together‚ especially for someone like myself who is mechanically challenged.

Condensor fan blade cracked, blade was sheared off.

  • Customer: Bradley from Cedarburg, WI
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 2 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
First, remove the cardboard cover on the back, lower portion of the refrigerator.

Next, locate the condensor fan motor assembly and blade. (Right side as you are facing)

Using a pliers, hold the shaft to keep it from turning and prevent damage to the motor. Using a screwdriver, slide the old ring compression on the blade shaft toward the motor (away from the fan blades) to loosen.

Remove old blade from the shaft by firmly grasping the motor shaft with a pliers (to prevent from damaging) and pull the blade assembly off.

Reverse the above steps to attach the new blade.
