Product Description

Lid Bumper Specifications

The lid bumper or evaporator fan motor bumper in your refrigerator prevents the fan motor from scraping against the side bracket. If your refrigerator/freezer is noisy, the bumper could be worn down or missing, and the sound could be a result of the motor scraping the side bracket. You will find it between the fan motor and the side bracket on the evaporator fan motor assembly. To access the bumper, you will need to remove the evaporator fan motor assembly from the freezer. This part is made of orange rubber and is less than half an inch in diameter. It has a rounded top and a slightly pointed bottom, and is sold individually.

    Frig and freezer work good but occasionally at least a couple times a day there is a loud bang-explosion slamming type noise that happens and have checked the unit and all is clean and just can't figure out what is causing it as it all of a sudden started to happen and doesn't seem to be getting any better or worse. It is quite loud.
    For model number PSS25NGMAWW
    Hi Richard, Thank you for the question. I suggest checking the fan blades. Make sure they are clean and not bogged down. Make sure the fan is running normal and not slow. In most cases the bang is coming from the condenser fan motor, Part Number: PS1483567. Hope this helps!

    On the condenser fan motor you suggested i look at and replace if needed i was wondering if this motor runs continuous and fast as will pull the reefer out again to check it out before ordering and any information you can give me in advance would be appreciated. Thank you part #ps1483567
    For model number PSS25NGMAWW
    Hello Richard, Thank you for your inquiry. The fan is designed to operate anytime the compressor is operating, and the compressor runs when the temperature sensor signals that the temperature inside the fridge rises above it's set point, so it will start the cycle to push the air through the fridge and cool it off, so if the condenser fan is running continuously, the fridge may be getting warmer more quickly than normal. Hope this helps!

    Good morning, my GE refrigerator makes a noise in the freezer coming from the fan blade Touching the metal cover in the back, if you pull that cover it will minimize or go away.Which part i need fan motor or ? thank,
    For model number Pshs6pgzbess
    Hi Rene, hard to say, I imagine if the fan its self is touching the lid you may have to replace the fan blade PS1021949. Thank you for your question and good luck with your repair!

      Loud high pitch whining noise behind freezer
      Ref. still worked but had this loud high pitch whining noise coming from inside freezer for a few months. It's probably a bad bearing or motor.

      1) Remove all shelves and ice dispencer
      2) Remove (x2 screws / a green wire that's clipped on) and the evap cover
      3) Remove (x3 screws) cover motor/solenoid and unplug harness
      3) Remove (x2 screws) icemaker and unplug harness
      4) Remove/Loosen (x2 screws bottom / x2 screws top) Duct air freezer
      5) Remove (x2 screws) Orifice evap fan and unplug harness
      note: will need to remove right screw to get green ground wire off. And be careful on to damage the gasket.
      6) Once Orifice out of refrig, disassemble.
      7) Main thing to replace is the Motor DC Evap fan, and maybe CapDust, BumperLid, GrommetEvpFan.
      8) now just go in reverse order...
      That's it . . . wasn't too hard and NO MORE whining!!! Save at least a couple of hundred by not having a prof. come out and do it. Easy enough for most DIY person.

      High Pitch Noise from the Evaporartor Fan
      Firt Removed the Ice Maker Tray and the full ice maker assembly. Removed the plastic shroud that sits over the fan assembly. Since the original connector (or the plug)for the motor had also a temperature sensor attached to it and did not know how to remove and trabsfer to the new motor connector I spliced the new motor to the old connector. It was fairly straight forward. Overall the job was not that difficult and since I was trying to be more meticulous it took a little longer. An average person can do it in around 30 to 45 minutes.

      Evap Fan was sqeeling
      First I removed the shelf and light cover, then removed 3 screws from the ice make. Then I removed 6 screws from the moter cover (back wall of the freezer) and removed it. I then removed the 2 screw holding the moter. This is where the soldering iron comes in. The wire leads from the old motor were molded into a 3" rubber holder and the end wire plastic connector held 6 prongs (2 from a thermo tube). The new motor only held the 4 moter prongs, 2 were empty. To resolve this problem I cut the wires on both the new and old motor. I then attached the old connector to the new moter with the soldering iron and shrink tubing. Replaced all the parts I had removed and started it up. Works like a champ.....

      unit making whining noise
      i removed srews from area until i could access the fan unit and removed it. wires were not identical so i had to splice some together, most likely could not have been avoided. the exploded parts diagram helped me to be sure that i would have all replacement parts on hand so i wouldn't have to wait for something i had forgotten.

      Evap Motor - loud noise
      The evap fan, based on research, appears to be built to only last a few years. Pay attention to your order of removal for all pieces and it will go back rather easily in reverse.Remove items from freezer. UNPLUG FREEZER. Pop out the shelf. Use screwdriver to remove plastic piece in back. Pop out styrofoam piece. Use screwdriver to remove back metal section of freezer. Use nutdriver to remove screws holding the fan to the back. Unplug the motor. Pop off the fan. Pay attention to location of all these pieces. Put them on the new motor. Reassemble in reverse. Piece of cake.

      Defroster fan burned up
      First I removed the ice tray rack lifting it out of the way to reach the back cover of the fan. Then, the whole back inside panel had to be removed. Two screws removed the fan and bracket from the freezer unit. The missing bumper lid just snapped into place. Replaced everything in reverse order. Pretty easy job.

      The fan motor on our 48" GE Monogram refrigerator was making a lot of noise
      Emptying the refrigerator and freezer and sliding that beast out of the cabinet was half the battle. Once the unit was out, it was a bit difficult removing the top and back panel to gain access to the fan motor (all of that is on top on our fridge). Once I gained access, replacing the fan motor was relatively simple. Although the video on Parts Select showed a model where the fan motor was located in the freezer compartment, the rest of the instructions in the video for changing out the fan motor and splicing the new motor wires to the existing wire harness (different connection) were very helpful. I was glad I purchased new rubber bumpers and grommets and a new compression ring to hold the fan in place. The old rubber grommets were pretty worn. I also took the opportunity to vacuum out all the dust that had accumulated over the years in areas that aren't accessible from the front. The next most difficult part of the repair was maneuvering the unit back into the cabinet. Probably would have been easier if I had a helper. The new fan has been running well and quietly since the repair. Thanks Parts Select!
