Could the evaporator fan motor be the cause of my refrigerator not getting cold, while the freezer does. The freezer makes loud popping noises.
For model number W8rxegmwb01
Hi Cecelia, Thank you for your question. The evaporator fan motor is one part you will need to check to see if it causing the refrigerator to become too warm. There are some other parts that you will also need to check to see which one is causing the issue. You will need to check the bi-metal defrost thermostat, the capacitor, the defrost heater, the defrost board, the start device, the cycling thermostat and the light rocker switch. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Upon observation the evaporater fan was not running. I spun it by hand and it started running but it doesn't seem to be very fast. How fast should fan on evaporater run? The back of the freezer is cold and frosted but neither the freezer or the refrigerator part seems to be very cold.
For model number ET8CHEXVQ00
Hello Lyndon, Thank you for contacting us. The evaporator fan motor should spin at 3000RPM. You can test the part with a multimeter. If you are unfamiliar with how a multimeter functions, we have videos available to assist you.

I have already ordered the evaporator fan motor and waiting for it to come. My freezer was working, but not my refrigerated section. Will it hurt to leave the refrigerator running until I get the part? We have turned down the freezer temperature and using it for some refrigerated items.
For model number ET1CHEXSB01
Hi Susan, Thank you for your question. You should be able to keep the refrigerator running until the new motor arrives. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Out of no where the inside of my refrigerator both freezer and cooler is permitting a chemical over some compare to a nail polish smell. Could this be a evaporated fan failure or something else? By the way, the freezer and cooler are still cooling. The cooler part could be a bit colder but the refrigerator from day one was weak at cooling. This refridgerator is only a couple years old. Thanks
For model number WRT311FZDW00
Hello Christine, thank you for your question. That smell is indicative of a Freon leak in the unit. Freon has been can be a very pungent ozone or gasoline smell as well as smelling like nail polish. The amount of Freon contained in the cooling systems of appliances is regulated to be at safe levels, and shouldn't present a threat to your health, but if your sense of scent is sensitive, the Freon smell can be overwhelming. Addressing the issue is as simple as finding the part of the fridge causing the leak. However, leaked Freon needs to be replaced by a technician. In the meantime, open some widows to allow the scent to dissipate. For safety's sake, unplug and scoot the machine out from the wall to gain access to its back or underside, whichever is the location of the coolant tubes that channel Freon throughout the unit. Empty the contents of the fridge and position yourself where the coolant pipes are. In some cases, depending on your model, these pipes are located underneath the unit, at which point you can tilt it back against the wall. Check your fridge's manual for the exact location. The best way to ascertain the location of the leak is to use your nose; wherever the nail polish smell is strongest, it is a sure bet that the leak is nearby. Use a flashlight if need be to find a nick, cut or fraying in one of the hoses. Once you find the leak, use a patch kit designed for repairing cooling hoses. These kits can be purchased at many hardware stores. However, these kits are only meant to serve as a temporary solution; you'll need a professional's advice concerning the extent of the leak and replacing Freon levels. In most states and jurisdictions, it is unlawful (not to mention dangerous) for non-licensed persons to obtain Freon. For this reason, only a licensed repair person should be contacted concerning the leak as well as restoring the appliance's Freon levels to standard levels; if this is not done, your unit won't cool your food to safe temperatures. I hope this helps!

Hello, the freezer is working, and it was working. But the fridge part is not. It's sweating and warm. I replace the capacitor, still the same. Next should be the evaperator. Should i continue with the evaperator or not.I dont want to buy the part, and it possibly doesn't work. thanks
For model number WRT1L1TZYWOO
Hello Carlos, thank you for inquiring. If the Evaporator Fan had failed, it would often create a lot of noise in the freezer area. If it is not the Evaporator Fan then you may want to consider the Condenser Fan Motor part number PS11739140 for your model. Good luck with your repair!

My frostless refrigerator does not defrost, ice foams in freezer and eventually water drips onto shelve in lower half. Freezer and lower half stay cold.. p.s. over the summer there have been some loud popping noises as if a relay is switching.
For model number M1TXEGMYB
Hello Eugene and thanks for writing. Popping noises could come from the evaporator fan motor PS11749890. which also could explain the ice built up. We hope this helps. Please contact us anytime.

Evaporator Fan failure
The reason I repaired it myself was because the repairman that diagnosed the problem.didn't come back in two weeks. The evaporator fan sits behind a vented wall in the freezer and directs cold air into freezer and refrigerator.I removed the ice make assembly first and then the freezer wall held in place by two sheet metal nuts. Then removed wires from fan motor. Removed the fan blade from fan motor,which was press fitted on,then removed fan motor from bracket assembly(make sure and retain the two vibration rubber washers on back and front of motor. Reinstall new motor with vibration washers and press fan blade on new motor. Install in bracket assemble and reassemnble.

Our refrigerator fan motor stopped working.
Most important, remove bracket attached to freezer rear wall and put entire fan motor assembly together, including attaching power supply, ground wire, front bracket and fan blade (be sure rubber vibration dampeners are in place on both brackets) THEN attach the whole assembly to the rear freezer wall! Doing it this way is so much easier, and you won't run the risk of losing a screw behind the condenser, as I did!

Refrigerator suddenly not staying cold. Freezer icing up about 1 month before.
Noticed the evaporator fan not spinning but would spin with a finger jump start. After looking up the part on the PartSelect liner parts diagram I found the installation video that really helped. After installing the fan it tested out fantastic. The fan was blowing air 10 times more than the old one. Refrigerator works great on the original econo setting.

freezer became frosty but refrigerator's camera didn'thave any coll at all.
After describing my problem PartSelect consultant emmidiately diagnost the problem and I ordered Evaporator Fan Motor. Along with purches order confirmation I got video how to install a new motor.
The hardest part was to connectthe ground wire becase space in that area was verylimited. Otherwise it was just like a walk in the park.
As soon as I installed motor and turned on the refrigirator, everything start working properly.
Thank you PartSelect, you sved me hundreds of dollars.
