First of all I want to thank Michael from Carlisle,PA and this site for publishing Michael's info on the wiring specifics on the new 3 connector Start Relay ( WP2262185 ). The original relay only has 2 connectors The 2 orange wires which are combined to one female connector need to be clipped and separated each to its own connector. Refer to Michael's blog as to which wire goes to which connector on the Start Relay. I replaced the Run Capacitor, Start Relay and Overload just to be safe. The Start Relay was the actual culprit.Thank you for an excellent website!

I was told to order the run capacitor and the technician thought it would repair the refrigerator; but it did not. The appliance technician had to take the run capacitor off and install what he called a "hard start" and the refrigerator is operating right now.

Fridge was cold but not cold enough. Stuff in the front was too warm.

Refigerator/freezer was not cooling

  • Customer: Barry from Westlake Village, CA

  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 3 of 5 people found this instruction helpful
I first removed the freezer shelf, then the back internal freezer wall by removing the 4 screws with my nut driver. Then removed the fan cover, by releasing the clips (6). Then unscrewed the fan mounting brackets (same nut driver), then released the fan. The connector on the replacement fan was different to the original, so I cut both connectors off, and reattached the 2 wires with wire nuts.
I then reassembled everything, and all is well. The refrigerator was successfully repaired

EVAP FAN MOTOR INOPERATIVE, FREEZER/FRIDGE NOT COLD ENOUGH

First, I killed the power to the refrigerator at the main power panel. (Safety First) Fridge had it's own breaker so it was easy. UNPLUG the fridge if you are not sure how to kill the power. Then I took out ice cube trays and rack along with freezer shelf. The ice cube rack has two screws underneath into the fridge side body which need to be taken out. Freezer shelf comes right out.(no fasteners) To get to the evap fan motor easily you need to remove the rear freezer panel. There are four hex head screws that come out with a 1/4" socket. There are two screws at each top corner and another two about half way down on each side. I used a small socket wrench, but a nutdriver would be better to remove the screws. Because of this, I also had to remove the lens which clips on/off and light bulb at top right corner to get to a screw. Just gently squeeze the plastic lens together at top and bottom and it will pull out then unscrew the light bulb. Gently pull the top of the rear panel towards you until you can see the evap motor. It has a special bracket attached to rear panel with two screws which need to be removed with the SAME 1/4" socket. For access to the fan motor bracket screws, while the panel is pulled out gently and carefully remove the plastic center vent panel which is clipped into slots in the rear panel, similar to the light bulb lens cover, except sideways. This panel directs forced cold air into the freezer and into a slot to the fridge below. Disconnect motor elec. connection.(snaps-together) Unscrew the two motor bracket screws and one grounding wire screw. Remove bracket with motor. Carefully pull off fan blade. Separate motor and bracket and be careful not to lose front and back rubber bushings. Re-assemble with new motor into bracket with rubber bushings. Re-install fan blade and re-install bracket with two screws onto center of rear freezer panel. Connect grounding wire screw and snap-together elec. connection.. Re-install center plastic vent panel and push back rear freezer panel while aligning center panel with slot below. Re-install four panel screws. Re-install light bulb and lens to panel. (if you had to take them off). Re-install ice cube rack (2 screws) and freezer shelf (align and push in) Turn on breaker or plug back in. YOU"RE DONE. My fridge now works better than new.
