This part fixes the following symptoms:
I did some research online, and was sure that it was the evaporator fan motor that was not working. So I paid more for overnight shipping than I did for the fan motor to have it over-nighted. I removed the botttom freezer door by simply pulling out and lifting it up. I then removed the wire shelf by pulling it straight out. Removed the ice maker by removing the three screws that held it in place . Disconnected the the wire harness, and pulled it out. Then I popped off the plastic vent at the top of the freezer's interior rear cover. Removed the rear cover by removing the four or so screws holding it on to expose the evap fan motor and the freezer coil. Careful, the fins are fragile and sharp. I inspected the fan motor and it seemed to be working fine. I unplugged the fridge and plugged it back in. It went through a defrost cycle and I put it all back together again. Cranked the frige unit up to 7, and was able to lower the freezer to 4. It's been working ever since. Eventually I was able to lower the fridge back down to 6. Long of the short is I paid $60 for nothing.

First I unplugged the refrigerator. I removed the freezer drawer and shelf. Ice maker and then the air duct. The air duct was a little difficult as it is held in with plastic tabs that have to be pried with a screw driver with care as to not over stress the part. I was then able to remove the back panel with the nut driver. This exposed the fan motor on its bracket. The new motor was a retrofitted part from the original. However following the supplied directions it was quite easy to change out and to make the new wire connections. After making sure that everything was clear from the fan I plugged the refrigerator in to check the operation of the motor. It worked perfectly. I then unplugged the fridge and replaced the back panel, duct. Ice maker, shelve and drawer. The fridge now works better than it ever has and we had to readjust the temperature control as it was a little hard to the lettuce. I found partsselect very good to deal with. Sears told us the part was back ordered and we would be without our fridge for a month, not acceptable at all. Partselect had the part and at a better price. And we had the unit running again in a couple of days. I am very satisfied with the experience.
