CustomerJorge from miami FL

The refrigerator was not getting cold on the top.

I found a similar problem in your forum and desided to give it a shot. The evaporator fan had stop working. It took me a while to find it but I discovered it inside the bottom drawer. I took off the drawer to make it easy to get to. I took off the back cover and there it was. I unplug it and replaced it with the new one which did not look like it at all but since it was the one that I received I pluged it and it worked. I was very satisfied. Thank you again for helping save money.

CustomerTwyla from Davenport IA

Freezer cold, refrigerator warm

about half my time was spent figuring out how drawer front and back panel were held in:
remove wire baskets
lift freezer drawer front to remove
remove ice maker...held in by 3 screws,then unplug
remove back panel screws
then on this model, there is a vent towards the top of the panel that is held in by unseen plastic clips on the top left and top right that had to be pressed in with a screwdriver to remove
unplug freezer evap motor also held together by clips
remove and replace motor (old fan blade pulls off and slides on new motor shaft)
plug motor back in
reinstall back panel
reinstall ice maker
reinstall drawer front and baskets

CustomerErvin from Hohenwald TN

Refrigerator stopped cooling, freezer worked

I Removed the drawers from the freezer compartment. Removed the ice maker, 3 screws. Removed the plastic vent cover, and steel panel on back of the freezer. Unplugged the wires for the fan motor. Removed the fan motor. The new motor was a replacement part. It looked different but it worked. Added a ground wire, as per instructions I replaced the motor, and reassembled the few parts that were removed. It really went well. No problems. Saved a lot of money by fixing it myself. It's working great. I got it fixed for about $40.00 I hat to think what it would have cost if I would have taken it to a repair shop.

CustomerJeffrey from Lutz FL

Refrigerator not getting cold - freezer ok

Per others' descriptions of this issue, I confirmed that the fan in the upper area of the freezer was not functioning. Purchased this assembly, which had everything ready to go. Removed all existing assemblies, ice maker, wall, old fan then installed new fan assembly with old rubber bushings and plastic blades - plugged in - and ran like a champ. Reassembled all then let cool down to correct temp and reloaded frig. All parts worked great - received them day after order - very impressed. Couple hours - fairly easy repair.

Refridge stopped cooling but freezer ok

Pulled out the drawers in the freezer. Loosened the four screws holding the back of freezer compartment exposing the fan. Had to disconnect and unmount the icemaker also. Disconnected and replaced the fan motor. The fan ordered didn't look the same as the original. The original was contained in a plastic housing.

Freezer cold, refrig warm

Go in Service Test mode using the refrigerator display and keypad (hold the refrigerator door light switch, press the refrigerator temperature up + 3 times consecutively, release the refrigerator door light switch). Press the refrigerator up + to make all the test. Service Test 3: the fan did not work (to see that you have to remove the wall in the freezer area). Changed the fan and everything was fine.

CustomerKenneth from Denmark WI

Freezer cold but refrigerator not

Replaced this fan about two years ago for the same problem. Ordered another fan because the symptoms were the same and could not hear or feel the fan running. (Didn't take freezer section apart) So now I have a spare fan, as the one I replaced before was just fine. Problem was ice build up behind the back panel, blocking the air. Will be leaving the "power saver" button off, as this may have been a factor (?). Good lesson in "not jumping to conclusions".
