Product Description

Compression Ring Specifications

This compression ring is meant to hold the evaporator fan motor in place in the freezer compartment of your refrigerator. This is is a genuine OEM part. The tools needed to complete this repair are a Phillips screw driver and small flat blade screw driver. Be sure to turn off your refrigerator before removing the evaporator fan cover so the fan does not turn on during repair. It is recommended to check the grommets, evaporator fan, and fan blades during repair in case they also need replacning. The compression ring may need replacing if the fan is noisy, or the refrigerator compartments are too warm. This part is sold individually.

Sorry, we couldn't find any existing installation instruction that matched.
There was frequently a loud buzzing sound that would come from the freezer.
I wouldn't have tried it without the excellent YouTube video that gave step-by-step instructions! I set up a laptop next to the refrigerator and watched each step then did it myself.

The instructions were very detailed and all of the parts looked exactly like what I was seeing. The only difference was that I didn't need to remove the floor of the freezer to get to the fan motor.

I bought the fan motor, grommets (2), compression ring and fan blade because I wasn't sure which part was causing the problem, and figured that as long as I was in there I might as well put in all new parts.

As it turned out, I did not need the compression ring, because the new fan blade came with a compression ring on it. This was different from what was shown in the video.

Since doing the repair the freezer is now as quiet as it should be, which is a great relief. The project and the money spent were more than worth it. It was great not having to pay a repair man to do the work!

Change out evaporator fan motor
Very easy. Bought a 6-1 screw driver for 1/4” and 5/16” nut drivers ends. 4 screws to remove panel that covers evaporator coil and motor. Remove the foam piece 2 screws, unplug wire plastic clip and motor come off. 2 screws to remove from bracket, replace motor. Put back together and reinstall. Watch video - it helped but very easy to do even if you don’t watch common sense is all you need.

Fan making an intermittent loud noise
Well the repair would have consisted of simply removing the old fan, and installing the new one, however, the replacement fan sent had a female connector on it, when it should have been a male connector. So, I had to take the connector off the old fan, and splice it onto the new one. This turned a really simple job into more of a project, which I was not planning on.

Loud Sound In Freezer
I followed the video for my model refrigerator on parts select. My hint: when returning the back panel of the freezer, it's slightly adjustable left and right to avoid grazing the fan.

Noisy fan in freezer compartment
Removed shelf by pushing to left and lifting up on RH end. Removed screws in plastic cooling tower and slid tower up. Pulled back wall of freezer compartment out, RH side first. Removed two screws from fan bracket, unplugged fan wiring harness by compressing connector spring clips and pulling joint apart. Pulled fan blade off (note location of blade on shaft for reinstall alignment purposes), removed both green grommets.Then just reinstalled new items.My philosphy on repairs of this nature is to replace all related parts that could be contributing to problem. The parts are cheap compared to the aggravation and inconvenience of doing the repair several times until you fix the problem. You don't need to purchase the compression ring if you buy the fan blade as it has one already installed on it. Problem solved, though now that the noise is gone am hearing fainter similar noises from lower fan. Should I be surprised, both fans are of similar design.

Noisy Evap Fan Motor
Could not haven been easier. Simply unplug fridge, remove air duct mounted on rear panel, release panel itself, pull fan blade off, disconnect grounding wire, detach fan motor bracket, disconnect wire harness to release fan motor, install new fan motor and reconnect, secure with bracket, reconnect grounding wire, reposition fan blade onto motor shaft, reinstall rear panel and secure screws. Remount air duct and plug appliance back in. VOILA. All done in less than 15 minutes!!!

High pitch noise
My GE refrigerator emitted high pitch noise a short while ago. I tried different dampening methods that helped but not eliminating the problem. I finally replaced the fan, motor, and associated parts and solved the problem. The total cost was about $50.
