Product Description

Evaporator Fan Motor Specifications

This evaporator fan motor circulates air to the fresh food compartments for efficient cooling. It powers the evaporator fan that draws air from the refrigerator and circulates it over the evaporator coils. Your fan motor has a long life cycle, but can burn out quickly if there is an obstruction preventing the fan from rotating. If the fan does not operate, the freezer will not cool properly. This will affect the performance of the compressor. This evaporator fan motor is located in the back of the freezer section of your refrigerator, behind the auger motor assembly. It is attached to the back wall. If you notice problems with your freezer then check to see if there is anything blocking a fan blade. If there is no obstruction, test the evaporator fan motor using a multimeter. Test the 2 wires that travel from the coil on the motor for resistance. If these tests indicate that the evaporator fan motor is at fault, it must be replaced. This part features 1 evaporator fan motor, which is metal and plastic, and comes in white/silver

I replaced the evaporator fan motor due to both sides of fridge no cooling. It worked for a while (1 week) then the fridge side started getting warmer cannot feel and air coming over from freezer to fridge but the after market evap fan is still turning and freezer side is fine , any suggestions . Thanks dave
For model number hsm25gftasa
Hello David, Thank you for your question. Our sources say that if the fridge side is still getting warmer but the freezer is fine, its possible that the defrost thermostat under part PS1017716 for your model needs to be replaced. Hope this helps!

How do i know witch evaporater fan motor i need, the with thermistor or with out?
For model number HSS25IFMCWW
Hi Justin, thank you for your question. Both parts are correct for your appliance so it really depends on what you need to fix whatever problem you are having. With one the thermistor comes already attached, with the other you have to reattach your current thermistor. Good luck with your repair.

Getting a brief, periodic, 2 second duration, noise about every 30 minutes to an hour. Seems to come from freezer or refrigerator compartment not the top compressor/ controls compartment. Is it the evaporator fan or would that be a more constant noise? What could it be? Noise is vibrational slightly grinding mid to low frequency in character.
For model number ZISB480DRJ
Hi Phil, thank you for your question. The first part I would actually suggest taking a look at would be your evaporator fan and motor. Sometimes ice or frost can build up and that is why you get that noise. Other times it can be that you might have to replace the fan blades or the motor itself. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

The wiring of the old evaporator motor has to be cut in order to remove it. The wiring of the new motor needs to be cut as well. Then the wiring ends of the new motor need to be spliced with the old wiring. Cutting the wiring of the new motor will prevent me from returning it if the problem is not the old motor. Before i spend money, can someone help determine what is the cause of the problem. The old motor is still working but it makes a winding noise, struggles to turn at times and oven trips the circuit breaker.
For model number GSL25JFPHBS
Hi Vecky, thank you for your question. Normally if your fan motor itself is making noise like you are describing, then you would have to replace that motor. I would suggest just making sure that you do not have frost build up on your motor, the fan blades, or the evaporator coils. You can also test your fan motor with a multi meter to see if it has continuity as well. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

I replaced the evaporator fan motor by cutting wires like video demonstrated using the old plug and thermistor but fan still not working. The bottom of freezer and fridge are cold but the top of both are too warm
For model number Gsl25jfpebs
Hi Kay, Thank you for your question. The fan may be defective or there is another issue causing the fan not to work. You will need to recheck the wiring for the evaporator fan motor, but you will also need to check the temperature sensor, the defrost thermostat, the electronic control board and the defrost heater. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

When refrigerator was still under warranty two months 3 months ago they replace the evap. Fan .Now it's doing the same thing making a lot of noise and you can hear it going in and out . It's very noise again cutting in and out . What is causing this for these fans to keep going out . I just bought all the thermostats , defrost heater and thermo resistors and no more freezing up . Know the fan we just put in about 3 months ago or so is going out again . What would cause this ?
For model number GSS20IETAWW
Hi Barry, Thank you for the question. Unfortunately I can not say what causes the fans to go out. That would be a question for the manufacture. PartSelect does have a 1 year warranty on all the parts we sell, so if you order the replacement part through us and it goes out within that time frame we can have it replaced for you. Hope this helps!

Evaporator motor sounded like wind in the trees howling
I had to remove all of the shelves.....part of the ice maker.....the rear cover over the freezer coils.....There were two wires that came from the back of the freezer that were also incorporated with the fan motor plug from the factory....This caused me to cut all of the wires from the new motor and soider them to the existing plug and shrink wrap the connections. If GE would have supplied two new ends I could have cut only those wires added the ends and inserted them into the new motor plug thus eliminating an extra hour and a soildering iron,,,,In my case not a big deal however not a project for those who have trouble with repairs using these type of tools.

The evaporator fan motor stopped running, freezer was warmer than normal
First ,I placed all the frozen food from the freezer into the lower fridge compartment. Removed the main shelf. Removed the ice cube tray shelf. Removed the center plastic covers using a nut driver. Removed the complete inside back wall of the freezer to get access to the fan. Simply removed about 5 screws, and cut 3 tie straps that held the wiring in place. Unplugged the fan connector and removed fan with its brackets and placed them on the kitchen table. Then used the nut driver to remove 2 screws which hald the fan to its bracket. Simply pulled off the fan blades and pressed them onto the new motor. Mounted new motor onto the bracket. Reinstalled the fan assembly back into freezer. Reconnected the wiring and the fan began to run... BE CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH THE FAN WITH YOUR FINGERS!
Finally replaced all the covers, panels, and shelf etc. and everything is once again nice and cold.

Refrigerator fan was very noisy and we started to notice frost on our food in the freezer.
I should state first that I am a DIYer and have no experience fixing appliances. The fan noise seems to be a common problem. It has something to do with the bearings. Mine was actually hitting the housing in front on the fan as well. Getting into the installation, I knew I had to take the back panel and fan housing off. But I found out that everything needs to come off. This is the ice maker, the housing underneath the ice maker as well as the fan housing and back panel. This isn't difficult but good to know before hand. A quick note, the light bulb housings come out by pulling them forward. It's a good idea to label the screws as you take them out as there are quite a few that need to come out. I replaced the evaporator fan the fan blade and one grommet. In hind sight I should have replaced both grommets as they both showed wear. They are both exactly the same so you can order two of the above. All in all this is a pretty easy fix. It takes a bit of time, but it's not to difficult. Th most difficult thing was the wiring. The fan comes with a six prong connector and has four prongs taken up. There is, what I think is a temperature sensor, that takes up the other two prongs. Since I didn't order that part, I had to cut it out of the old connector and insert it into the new evaporator fan connector. This was a bit difficult and would have been much easier if I had ordered the part. Unfortunately, I don't know what that part is called, but it must be some kind of temperature sensor as it clips on the coil. The wires also run through a blue rubber wire-run that needs to be sliced open. This was pretty easy to do with a small serrated pocket knife. SLice it on the back side of it and pull the old wires out. When you are ready to install, just run the new wires through the hole from the old wires. Once you have replaced the fan the new blade and the two new grommets, it's just a matter of replacing all the equipment. Fan housing first, then the upper housing followed by the ice maker and the back panel. Good luck

High Pitch Noise from the Evaporartor Fan
Firt Removed the Ice Maker Tray and the full ice maker assembly. Removed the plastic shroud that sits over the fan assembly. Since the original connector (or the plug)for the motor had also a temperature sensor attached to it and did not know how to remove and trabsfer to the new motor connector I spliced the new motor to the old connector. It was fairly straight forward. Overall the job was not that difficult and since I was trying to be more meticulous it took a little longer. An average person can do it in around 30 to 45 minutes.

The freezer was whining and growling like a baby
I replaced the motor that runs the fan in the freezer compartment. Had to remove a number of shields to get to the fan and then some wires and screws to get at the motor. It came with a plug with 4 wires in it and I was supposed to pull 2 wires out of the old plug and place them in the new plug. Long story short the pins would not extract from the plug and the wiring harness was molded in solid plastic, so I ended up cutting the 4 wires to the motor and splicing in the new one and taping them with electrical tape. So far no more moaning and the ice cream is still hard, so I think we nailed it.

Freezer Was Not Cold Enough To Keep Food Frozen Or Make Ice
I am a single mom of two with limited funds. I had a repairman come out and find the problem and give an estimate. We were told that it was the evaporator fan motor and and the main control board. The repair would cost $400 and no guarantee. So I checked the cost of parts and it was $200 so for no guarantee I figured why not try it myself and possibly save $200. So I ordered the parts from partselect. Even though I paid the cheapest postage they arrived the next day. So from what I read and saw this would be a piece of cake. Well let me just say if the freezer section was gutted to begin with it might not have been that big of a deal. As it was getting to the top screws of the panel that covers the evaporator fan required the removal of the icemaker and all. I am not a tall woman nor am I a thin woman and fitting my body in that small freezer section was not easy. There were times that I had to have my teenagers reach a long arm in and hold a part up for me. After that I discovered that the fan I had purchased only had 4 wires. The one from my old fan had 6. I discovered that 2 of the wires went to some sort of sensor. Long story short I rigged it. I was able to remove the 2 prongs for the sensor and insert them into the empty holes on the new fan harness. It wasnt easy. I have limited tools too and I wont even get into how I did it. They did not fit the greatest so I used the electrical tape to cover the whole connection. I put the whole thing back together and debated on trying it without putting in the main board but I decided to trust the repairman this time and go for it. Getting to the main board was no big deal. But what disturbed me was the main board I held in my hands did not look exactly like the main board I was about to take out. I watched the video 3 times my how easy it looked. I then read the directions that came with it. It talked about removing a pin and cutting a wire. Well I about had a stroke worrying. I finally found the serial # on my frig and thankfully mine was not on the list. However the directions did still say something about if there wasnt a wire in pin 2 proceed to step 3. Well I had a wire in pin 2. So it was confusing. My serial # wasnt one of the models #'s given but I did have a wire in pin 2. I just took a chance and trusted the serial #'s and ignored the rest of it. I plugged the wires on the new board one at a time. Put the cover back on and prayed as I plugged it in. A soft purr began. It was running. The freezer was around 60 degrees. I put a room thermometer in to make sure it was going down. It kept going down. Around 3 hours after I finished there was a loud noise from the freezer. It had made ice something it had not done in months. I stayed awake most of the night watching and listening to it. It got down in the single digits I was afraid that maybe it would never shut off. It finally shut off as I was making the kids breakfast the next morning. Of course I was worried that it would not restart. So I opened the freezer and fanned in room air. It worked. Since then we have purchased no more dry ice or regular ice. We bought a tub of ice cream and more than one day of school lunch stuff at a time. Bottom line it works. Thanks to everyones post and to partselect for the video. I hope that I never have to do it again though.

Evap Fan was sqeeling
First I removed the shelf and light cover, then removed 3 screws from the ice make. Then I removed 6 screws from the moter cover (back wall of the freezer) and removed it. I then removed the 2 screw holding the moter. This is where the soldering iron comes in. The wire leads from the old motor were molded into a 3" rubber holder and the end wire plastic connector held 6 prongs (2 from a thermo tube). The new motor only held the 4 moter prongs, 2 were empty. To resolve this problem I cut the wires on both the new and old motor. I then attached the old connector to the new moter with the soldering iron and shrink tubing. Replaced all the parts I had removed and started it up. Works like a champ.....
