If you notice that your refrigerator or freezer is noisy or too warm, you may need to replace the evaporator fan grommet. This part is red in color, and is about 1 inch in diameter. The evaporator fan grommet is located behind the evaporator fan cover in the back of the freezer. You will need to remove the evaporator fan cover to access the evaporator fan and complete this repair. Before you begin this repair, ensure the power to the refrigerator is disconnected. You will need a pair of needle nose pliers, a small flat blade screw driver and both a 1/4 and 5/16-inch nut drivers to complete this repair.

Removed freezer bottom and back plates-encountered ice -melted with heat gun.Observed fan not running with fridge plugged in and considerable erosion of the styrofoam part.ordered fan motor and blade and styrofoam ducting and replaced same.Fan started running immediately when plugged in and now the compressor cycles normally and the refrigerator compartment is much cooler and icing has stopped. I'm good to go until the compressor fails! thanks for the excellent delivery service(2 days)and your parts diagrams really helped me trouble shoot the problem.
Inspected freezer because food was not freezing, getting cold, but not freezing. Noticed fan was not blowing air, but making a little motor noise, like it's trying to turn. Removed cover panel, and found the fan blade rubbing on the panel, fan shaft was worn out and very loose, wobley. That told me the fan needed to be replaced. Found part on the GE Partselect website and ordered the parts via the website order process. This was easy. The parts were shipped quickley and were at my front door the next day. Couldn't believe it. The actual process was very easy: Remove cover, remove bracket holding fan motor, remove and replace motor, re-assemble parts. About 20-25 minutes from start to finish. Freezer is working like it's suppose to.
