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.

Refrigerator fan motor died
It has been my experience that these motors sometimes die when the refrigerator is overfilled and motor strains to keep refrigerator cold. And this motor is used in several models of refrigerators. That said, sometimes the hook-up is slightly different between other units. The available video is good, but like I said, circumstances will be slightly different between various models.

After cleaning out freezer (plug disconnected first), start to remove outer plastic covers. If you want to keep track of the different steps, you can take pictures with your cellphone. And if there are any connecting wire attachments you think you might not remember, again, you can take a picture, or label with tape (colored tape, or by writing on the tape). And for keeping track of the different-size screws, I place them in a muffin tin, keeping an order of left to right and top to bottom in the tin. When removing Styrofoam blocks in bottom center, make sure you remove any remaining ice underneath in the hole so refrigerator can "breathe". Freezer air is moved below to refrigerator compartment, so a blocked vent hole will strain refrigerator as it tries to maintain its temperature setting and can be the cause of your failed motor.

After replacing motor onto bracket with grommets and blade, don't completely tighten. Position plastic cover with hole opening over motor and blade assembly. Twirl motor blade to see if there is any interference with cover. If not, take away cover and tighten motor on bracket. If there is any rubbing, adjust motor/blade assembly accordingly before tightening in place. Putting everything back together is in reverse order.

Howling motor
Open freezer, remove rack....this got a little complicated because I had to remove the door, that required the offset screwdriver because I had a clearance issues preventing the door from opening all the way. Remove the panel covering the fan, unplug the fan, remove it from bracket, install new fan, plug in, replace panel, replace rack, replace door...bam all done!

Loud screeching noise from freezer during cooling cycle
I replaced the fan motor and one of the grommets. When I took the motor out it was clear it was failing because there were metal flakes from the motor on the fan blade. I followed the instructions on the posted video. My model did not have a removable bottom tray in the freezer so that was one less thing to do. Aside from that the video was accurate. I had two minor problems during reinstallation. First, it was very difficult to get the spring clamp back on the fan blade without pushing it against the motor. Recommend you get someone to help hold the spring open while you push it on. Second, the length of wire on the replacement was not exactly the same as the original and I had to move some wires around. Recommend you take a picture of the cable layout before disassembling.

the evaporator fan motor was making noise sometimes, but not all the time during the cooling cycle
after watching how easy it was to get to the evaporator fan motor on u-tube, I took out the motor to inspect it......the motor had about 1/8 inch shaft end play and a slight amount of play on the shaft, the rubber grommets looked OK.....I then put it back together......since the motor was the only moving part in this location I figured it had to be the part making the noise, so I ordered a motor and 2 grommets …...the replacement motor also had 1/8 inch end play on the shaft, but no play on the shaft....I installed the new parts and it has been a week now and no noise.....SUCCESS!...….the shaft on the motor protrudes from the motor, and the fan is mounted about 1 1/4 inch away from the bearing in the motor and the fan is unsupported, so I ASSUME that the slight amount of play on the shaft caused some harmonics which caused it to make noise some of the time, but not all of the time......

Freezer was wet and there was no air coming out of the freezer fan. Unit was very noisy too.
The video that was attached to the part order was good, but not exactly the same as my unit. One thing I recommend is that you cover up the drain below the evaporator coil with a piece of paper and tape it down, because as I was putting the motor back I dropped a screw and it fell down the drain. So I had to go buy a new screw.
Give the cost of a repair man coming to fix a refrigerator that cost only $450 to begin with, doing this repair was well worth my time. (But I also had another refrigerator to move things to and could take my time and wait while they replaced the faulty part they shipped me.)

Fan became noisy
First unplug freezer and empty contents, then remove the screws from the air deflector, carefully remove styrafoam air deflector block then remove back panel for easy access. Fan will be easy to switch out from there. I highly recommend the You Tube video which is where I got my basic instructions.

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.

My fridge is too warm but the freezer is cooling fine. I pulled apart the top and have the fan assembly exposed. Should I be able to observe the fan running when I have the door to the freezer open? So far I have not seen it running. If it is not running, then is the fan motor the only part you foresee me needing from this assembly? Thanks!
For model number GTE18LGHBRBB

My refrigerator is not working properly the freezer will freeze ice but the refrigerator is not getting cold enough the fan that moves the air to the refrigerator compartment is running but I don’t know if it is running fast enough or if it may be a two speed fan and something is keeping it from kicking into the higher speed?
For model number Gts22jcpdrww
PartSelect logo
Hi Virgil, thank you for the question. You may need to check the defrost thermostat, part number PS1155320, to fix the issue. It protects the evaporator from overheating during the defrost cycle. If it is faulty, it causes a rise in the temperature of the refrigerator. We hope this helps!

I ordered the evaporator fan motor WR60X31522. I just want to make sure about the ground wire. My previous motor the ground was seperate. The new one the ground wire is with in the plug with the other wires. Therefore I am assuming that I don't need the single ground wire attached to the mounting terminal bracket any more. Is that correct?
For model number GTS18FBRERWW

Hi Nichole, Thank you for asking. Yes, you would be correct. Good luck with the repair!
