Product Description

Fan Blade and Spring Clip Specifications

If you notice an unusual noise coming from your freezer, the evaporator fan blade might be the problem. Frost-free freezer models use evaporator fans to move air through the evaporator for more efficient cooling. If the evaporator fan blade gets damaged or worn it may become noisy. If the blade is loose on the motor shaft or if the fins are damaged, it should be replaced. Be sure to remove power to the appliance before attempting any repair. The evaporator fan assembly is located behind the air grille or evaporator cover and can normally be accessed by simply removing a few mounting screws. The fan blade is normally pressed on to the motor shaft and secured by a spring clip.

Froze over fan motor burnt out
Removed shelves from inside freezer then removed 4 screws holding cover panel. Pulled panel up and slightly pulled forward to remove. Removed wiring connections then removed two screws that held the motor & fan assembly. Removed the support bracket from the old motor and installed same on the support bracket. Reversed removal procedures for installation. Cover panel is a little bit of a problem when trying to reinstall. Put in panel as high as you can and then slide down. You must then exert a little pressure on the bottom portion to get it to seat correctly. Install four remaing screws and you are done. I had this repaired previously by a professional repairman and noticed from the pictures you folks provided that he had installed the screws on the support bracket incorrectly. That was the reason for the fan blade to rip apart.

Broken fan blade, missing two blades
Turn off power to freezer. Removed two shelves, removed four phillip screws and cover. Used 5/16 nutdriver to remove two fan motor bracket bolts. Did not disconnect wiring, had enough room to flip motor over and remove broken fan blade and attach new fan blade. After reading remarks from another home tech, I reversed the bolts holding motor to bracket, so nuts would not come in contact with fan blades again. Still not sure why fan would of slipped down to break. Running good now!

Evaporator fan was not running.
When we discovered that the freezer was not holding temperature we quickly moved everything we could to the freezer compartment of our refrigerator. I then removed the shelves and basket from the freezer.
I used a Philips screwdriver and removed the 4 screws from the panel at the rear of the freezer. I discovered that 1 of the 4 fan blades had broken off and was laying in the bottom of the freezer. I plugged the freezer in and found that the motor was not running. I removed the bracket which holds the fan and motor with a socket wrench.

When I received the fan and new motor I installed both by reversing the process.

The only issue I had to deal with was that the auto-defrost wire had to be carefully removed from the old motor plug and inserted in the new plug. Once that was accomplished everything was simple.
