The fan motor all but caught the inside of the freezer on fire . Had to remove then clean, and I mean clean the walls of the freezer . Then had to pry out the old fan without breaking anything . Replacement of new fan was quick and easy because all the parts that I needed were in the bag
first i by passed the timing board, with a ele cord to the fan motor to keep the fridge cool till your parts got here, which was realy fast delivered,the fan would come on because the board was fried.it took abot 30 min to install every thind just be carefully unpluging anything.things will break i guess metal eing cold makes the conne4ctors stick together.evaporator fan is in the frezzer four screws,tested the wires for ohms,and power, when i pluged in the fan i would loss power to the fan,that told me the board was bad, the same night my furnance when to (reaaly) and i lost my borad on the computer ethernet card (lighting isn't fun) it cost to fix everything about 130.00 thanks for thr great parts
