This evaporator fan motor is located in the back of the freezer and circulates air over the refrigerator coils. These coils will convert the heat into cool air, which is then circulated.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
I removed two srews from the back panel inside fthe reezer compartment and the two that hold the air manifold/baffle? and pulled the baffle out. Then, I removed the two srews that hold the front part of the fan bracket behind the baffle and the back panel came out easily. Two more screws and one quick connect plug attached to the fan and I was done with removal. Insallation was even quicker, I slid the original fan right off the old motor and slid it on the new motor's shaft. Piece of cake! Thanks Partselect.

the repair was really easy!!! took longer to put the little clip on the fan part than it was to install the whole moter and put everthing back togethersave money do it yourself.....
Unplug refrigerator.Remove the floor of the freezer box by removing the 4 philips head screws. Remove the cover over the fan by pulling it straight up and out. Remove the styrafoam duct by pulling it straight up and out. Remove the back wall of the freezer by removing the 4 philips head screws. Unplug fan. Remove the fan, bracket and all, by removing the two philips head screws on the back wall. Take the two halves of the bracket appart by removing the two hex head scews on the back of the bracket. Remove the "O" ring from the fan blade and remove the blade. There is a rubber grommet on both the front and back halves of the bracket. Make sure they are set properly in the brackets to secure and position the motor properly so the fan blade doesn't hit anything when it spins. Install the new motor onto the bracket the same way you took the old one off. Check the positions of the brackets, rubber grommets and motor to make sure they're properly installed and secure. Replace the "O" ring onto the fan blade and install it onto the new motor with a firm push on the center of the blade. Install the brackets and fan onto the back wall and plug in the new motor. Reinstall the back wall of the freezer box and make sure the motor is secure. Plug the refrigerator back in and check to make sure the fan blade doesn't hit anything while it's turning. Finish reassembling the freezer box.
First I removed the 4 screws in the back of the freezer. I then pulled the connection from the fan , I replaced the fan to the connection, replaced the 4 screws and I was done! I still can't believe how simple it was.
Took off the back panel 4 screws, 2 screws on fan motar ,unpluged fan and replaced fan motor ,Hardest part of the whole job was setting the fan blade ,easy to push on but becarefull not to push it on to far.check distance on old fan before you take the blade off.
Pulled refrigerator plug from socket.Removed all freezer items.

It works. Replaced everything...foam insert, panels, food.One week later, still working.....(Now...I don't know why the fan did not start right away...it may be that there's a small round thermostat sitting on a copper tubing, that needed some time to kick in...but that's a supposition.)Have fun
I removed the fan housing , this was the hardest part , this took loosining two screws and snapping the housing loose , and there it was , settin there Idle and the coils were all ice , I let the coils thaw while I unscrewed the fan mount from the back wall of the freezer , then pulled the fan and mount out far enough to snap the wire connector loose, then I removed the two screws that hold the motor to the mount , the new fan motor comes without the blade so the blade is removed by pulling fairly had on the center off the shaft , the old motor is taken out of the mount , the new one replaces it perfectly , then the screws are replaced and tightenen , then the blade is pushed back on the shaft , the motor and mount are placed back on the back wall of the freezer department and screwed in place , the wires connected , then the housing is snapped back in place and the screws tightened , turn the dial to cool or number 2 or 3 and " bingo " it,s just like new , I can thank part select for speedy service and delivery
Not only was finding the part rediculously easy for a person who has never done this type of thing...the repair was a sinch!! I will always return to this company for help with home equipment repairs. I saved so much money doing it this way. :) thanks guys!
Followed the instructions on the repair video and it made very easy. Also saved us a lot of money. Thanks for your help.
assembled ordered parts then replaced defective fan and blade and bracket as a group
First I removed the two screws, the fan and unpluged the electrical connection. Then, plugged in the new part and then screw it back together.
common sense,removed plate,removed mounting bracked,unplugged,reversed order,and that was it.
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.
4 screws in the freezer and the back panel came off then 2 more screws to take the motor off. I unpluged the old motor pluged in the new motor put the back panel back on and I was done.
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.
