I had already ordered a replacement evaporator motor from another vendor. I ordered the evaporator fan blade, compression ring and rubber grommets from PartSelect. Apparently this is a pretty common issue with top-freezer refrigerators. Obtaining these parts and possessing the few tools needed saved me at least $100 over having someone else perform the repair. I will further use PartSelect when ordering parts for my other appliances. Thank you.

First I looked at the video on changing out the fan.Made a lot of difference. Everything was covered and made it simple. Wish I had gotten two grommets but the back one was in good shape and worked fine. My hearing isn't great but now I can't even hear the thing run unless the freezer door is open. The shipping was great! You sent it out immediately and in a few days it was here.

Removed upper door w/ 5/16 nut driver, did same with center hinge and pin assembly. Removed old hinge pin assembly and shim. Installed new shim and hinge pin assembly, w/ spacer, had best luck putting hinge pin assembly in place in door and setting n place prior to tightening. Re-installed top hinge and job was complete.

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.

emptied the freezer compartment, unfastened the air column panel, then four small bolts to remove the back panel in the freezer, unplugged the motor, unscrewed the motor, installed all in te reverse order and had the compartment refilled and running again in less than a half hour.

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.

First thing I did was un-plug the fan motor located in the freezer compartment and test it for voltage, which it had, telling me the fan motor was shot.I ordered the parts, they arrived in short order and the fan motor was replaced. It took little time and there were no levers, pulleys,servos, gobs of wiring or stacks of gears in a maze of bearings to deal with. Unplug the unit, remove the food rack, ice cube maker(just loosen the 2 screws and lift up)remove the air channel in the center as well as the back panel. Unplug the fan motor and remove the screws securing the motor bracket and lift out. Very simple.
