You will need a quarter inch nut driver and a pair of needle nose pliers for this repair. Note: This motor uses 2 brackets, which are sold separately.

Question:

I’m having the same problem as most the fridge is at 50-55 degrees and it set on the coolest setting. My freezer is at 20degreees and it’s set a level 2. One thing my fridge is doing, that nobody mentioned is that my freezer is dripping in the fridge. Not much about a cereal bowl a week. Would this be caused by the fan motor not working properly or another part.

Shaun for model number Et1ftkxkq06
Answer:

Hi Shaun, Thank you for the question. Something else to check are the door gaskets. If there are any gaps or wear they could be letting warn air in and causing the inside to "sweat" and create the dripping. You can also test the thermostat with an multi meter to see if it tests defective, or the defrost timer. You can try to clean the blades of the evaporator fan as they can get build up over time causing it to slow down. You should be able to hear the fan running when you open the freezer door or listening for it at the back of the appliance. Good luck with the repair.

Fridge was warm. No air circulating at all. Food was spoiling fridge was just over 1 year old

First I removed the two screws that secure the guard in bottom back of the freezer and removed it . Next I removed the two screws that secure the guard on the back wall of the freezer and removed it. There are three wires connected to the motor, I unplugged those and removed the two screws that secure the motor and removed it. I swapped the grommets, blade and support bracket from the old motor. I put it back together in reverse steps and its working great. My mother-in-law can,t stop thanking me ! I saved her at least $400 to buy a new fridge. Thank You, Brian Miner

The old motor has built in wire harness. The new motor has connectors on it.

Remove and clean out everything from the freezer and unplug the refrigerator. Take out the wire shelf in the freezer. (The fan motor is behind the back wall of the freezer, SO YOU CAN KEEP THE REFRIGERATOR CLOSED). Pop off the little cover on the center of the plastic shroud. Remove the little screw and carefully remove the plastic shroud. Remove the plastic cover for the optional ice maker on the upper left corner of the back wall. Take out the two screws in the upper corners on the back wall of the freezer and the last two screws holding the fan motor. The fan motor won't drop, remove the back wall and you will see two screws holding the motor mount. Remover those two screws, and pop the bracket out and separate.Take the two rubber motor mounts off the ends of the old motor and install them on the new motor. (Now you will have to cut the wires off the old motor), unplug the little wire harness, strip the ends and crimp on wire connectors to plug them onto your new motor. Its an AC motor so it shouldn't matter which hot goes on which of the two terminals. JUST MAKE SURE THE GROUND IS CORRECT! (After reinstalling the motor, plug in the refrigerator, turn it on before installing the shroud and make sure the fan is blowing outward. If all is correct, turn the refrigerator off, unplug and finish assembling the freezer. I found the new motor seems to run more efficiently than the old one.
