The repair was very easy, unplug ref. open freezer door, and remove base plate, then remove screws on back plate. I had to tilt top of back plate to remove from freezer.

Remove fan motor from bracket (2) screws, remove motor, and put replacement motor on bracket, pull fan blade off old unit and push on new motor shaft. Reverse the installation, and you are done.

1. Turn thermostat down to ensure cooling cycle turns on. Open freezer compartment and listen for air flow/fan. If no air flow or fan, but compressor seems to be working, then proceed to next steps. 2. Turn thermostat up to shut off refrigerator cooling cycle. 3. Open freezer and remove wire shelf (if installed). 4. Using nutdriver or socket set, remove screws securing metal panel on the back wall of the freezer interior. 5. Pull metal panel out to expose evaporator fan and evaporator coil. 6. Ensuring area around fan is clear, turn thermostat down to again start cooling cycle and check if fan operates - if not, then fan needs to be replaced. 7. Turn off refrigerator and unplug from electrical outlet. 8. Order replacement fan (unless you happen to keep one in stock). 9. Remove two screws securing fan and fan bracket assembly to back wall of freezer, note wire connections to fan (red, white and green), disconnect wires and remove fan assembly. 10. Gently pull off fan blade, it is a compression fitting. 11. Remove two screws holding back and front fan brackets together and remove fan motor. 12. Remove rubber gasket from front and back of old motor and insert then on the new replacement fan motor (these rubber gaskets align to openings in the fan brackets, thereby holding the motor in place when installed back into the brackets). 13. Reinstall fan brackets onto new motor matching how the old motor was assembled. 14. Press the fan blade onto the new motor shaft. 15. Reinstall fan motor assembly onto back wall of freezer. 16. Reconnect wires to new motor as they were previously connected to old motor. 17. Reinstall back wall metal panel that covers the fan motor assembly and evaporator coil. 18. Reinstall wire shelf (if applicable). 19. Plug refrigerator in and adjust thermostat to normal setting to initiate cooling cycle. 20. Open freezer and listen for fan and airflow, if you hear it operating correctly, then close freezer and refrigerator and confirm temperatures after refrigerator has cycled through one full cooling cycle - adjust thermostat as necessary. 21. Tell your spouse or significant other that for less than fifty dollars you just saved the price of replacing the refrigerator.

I watched the repair video. My son followed my instructions. He removed the ice-maker. The back panel was frozen, so we chipped and waited for the ice to thaw. There are three wires to remove from the old fan. My son used his cell phone to take a picture of the correct wiring. He used needle nose pliers to get the motor off the bracket. I used hot water to thaw the ice, so we could get the back panel to fit properly. If we weren't waiting for the ice to melt, we could have finished in about a half-hour. I'm 86 years old, and have carpel tunnel. My son is 63. Together, we make a good team.
