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.

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!

noisy refrigerator
I followed your video and completely dismantled the refrigerator evaporator motor, fan, brackets, and grommet, I completely cleaned the refrigerator including the cooling coils. I then ordered the evaporator motor ,fan, grommets, lid bumper, and brackets. The order would take a week to arrive. In the meantime I cleaned and reassembled all the old parts, waiting for the new ones to come. Guess what! The refrigerator was quiet as a mouse. I really did not need the new parts, but I kept them anyway just for good luck. Not bad for a refrigerator that's twenty four years old.

Noisy Freezer Evaporator
Find a video on youtube. Remove 6 screws. Pull the Styrofoam part up before removing the panel. Unplug and Remove the fan assembly.
You will need a NUT DRIVER to take the bracket off the backing plate.
I ordered the red grommet and the red bumper. You need TWO of the red grommets if that is the problem. My freezer was about 8 years old, and the grommets were worn and compressed, the bumper was not. Replacing these parts DID NOT FIX the problem. I needed a new motor.
I probably disassembled and reassembled this stuff about 7 times before I got all the parts and tools. Each time I had to unload the freezer.

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.

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.

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.

freezer and ice maker worked fine but bottom(cooler)did not cool innoff .Freezer compartment was also forming a lot of ice all over. l
Removed covers on the freezer compartment to gain access to the evaporator fan motor.The motor was turning but not fast innoff to move air true tthe evaporator coil.The evaporator fan it is the one that will cool the bottom and top of your refrigerator.

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
PartSelect logo
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!

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!
