Product Description

EVAPORATOR FAN MOTOR Specifications

This 115-volt 60Hz evaporator fan motor is located in the back of the freezer and circulates air over the refrigerator coils. These coils will convert the heat into cool air, which is then circulated. If the motor has failed, the freezer/refrigerator will become too warm because the fan motor is not circulating the cool air from the freezer into the refrigerator. This is a genuine OEM part. Please remember to disconnect the power to the appliance before starting your repair.

    On this model there are two fans top and bottom, is the motor the same? Is this something the home owner could replace? Thanks
    For model number GTS18GTHSRWW
    Hello Ted, Thank you for the question. The Top fan is the Evaporator Fan, Fix Number: FIX10063450 and the bottom is the Condenser Fan, Fix Number: FIX11721902. The Fan motors are different. Most customers have been able to perform the repair on their own. We hope this helps!

    Is there an easy way to tell if I should replace the evaporator fan? The refrigerator only cools to 50 degrees. I vacuumed and checked the condenser area, but no change. I think I have a broken evaporator fan. Thus the question.
    For model number HTH17CBTZRWW
    Hello Peter, Thank you for the question. If the fan is not spinning or spinning slowly, the Fan Motor will need to be replaced. If you need help placing an order, customer service is open 7 days a week. Please feel free to give us a call. We look forward to hearing from you!

      Freezer Fan
      I removed two srews from the back panel inside fthe reezer compartment and the two that hold the air manifold/baffle? and pulled the baffle out. Then, I removed the two srews that hold the front part of the fan bracket behind the baffle and the back panel came out easily. Two more screws and one quick connect plug attached to the fan and I was done with removal. Insallation was even quicker, I slid the original fan right off the old motor and slid it on the new motor's shaft. Piece of cake! Thanks Partselect.

      Loud Fan Motor
      Unplug refrigerator.Remove the floor of the freezer box by removing the 4 philips head screws. Remove the cover over the fan by pulling it straight up and out. Remove the styrafoam duct by pulling it straight up and out. Remove the back wall of the freezer by removing the 4 philips head screws. Unplug fan. Remove the fan, bracket and all, by removing the two philips head screws on the back wall. Take the two halves of the bracket appart by removing the two hex head scews on the back of the bracket. Remove the "O" ring from the fan blade and remove the blade. There is a rubber grommet on both the front and back halves of the bracket. Make sure they are set properly in the brackets to secure and position the motor properly so the fan blade doesn't hit anything when it spins. Install the new motor onto the bracket the same way you took the old one off. Check the positions of the brackets, rubber grommets and motor to make sure they're properly installed and secure. Replace the "O" ring onto the fan blade and install it onto the new motor with a firm push on the center of the blade. Install the brackets and fan onto the back wall and plug in the new motor. Reinstall the back wall of the freezer box and make sure the motor is secure. Plug the refrigerator back in and check to make sure the fan blade doesn't hit anything while it's turning. Finish reassembling the freezer box.

      The lower half of the refrigerator was not cold, the fan was not blowing
      First I removed the 4 screws in the back of the freezer. I then pulled the connection from the fan , I replaced the fan to the connection, replaced the 4 screws and I was done! I still can't believe how simple it was.

      Lower part of refrigerator warm
      Pulled refrigerator plug from socket.
      Removed all freezer items. Put them into sink to keep cool.
      Phillips head screwdriver removed screws from plastic housing fan cover from rear of freezer compartment.
      Removed fan housing panel by lifting up and out. Panel has two small tabs that fit into back panel.
      Removed back panel with phillips head screwdriver.
      Fan is now exposed. Not working.
      Plugged power cord back in.
      Disconnected power adapter to fan.
      Voltage meter sees power to ground and hot wire.
      Fan not working
      Unplugged power cord.
      Removed fan from rear by socket tool.
      Used hair dryer to remove ice build up in styrofoam insert between freezer compartment and lower section.
      Removed foam insert....broke a couple of pieces off.
      Test new motor with a line cord wire stripped at ends
      Motor works. (Old one did not work with same test)
      Replaced fan into bracket.
      Replaced bracket into rear of freezer.
      Plugged power cord in.
      Fan does not work.....Whoa!!!..closed freezer door and heard fan running!!! It works.
      Replaced everything...foam insert, panels, food.
      One week later, still working.....
      (Now...I don't know why the fan did not start right away...it may be that there's a small round thermostat sitting on a copper tubing, that needed some time to kick in...but that's a supposition.)
      Have fun

      we had a power surge that killed the fan motor
      I removed the fan housing , this was the hardest part , this took loosining two screws and snapping the housing loose , and there it was , settin there Idle and the coils were all ice , I let the coils thaw while I unscrewed the fan mount from the back wall of the freezer , then pulled the fan and mount out far enough to snap the wire connector loose, then I removed the two screws that hold the motor to the mount , the new fan motor comes without the blade so the blade is removed by pulling fairly had on the center off the shaft , the old motor is taken out of the mount , the new one replaces it perfectly , then the screws are replaced and tightenen , then the blade is pushed back on the shaft , the motor and mount are placed back on the back wall of the freezer department and screwed in place , the wires connected , then the housing is snapped back in place and the screws tightened , turn the dial to cool or number 2 or 3 and " bingo " it,s just like new , I can thank part select for speedy service and delivery
