Product Description

Evaporator Fan Motor Kit - 120V 60Hz Specifications

The evaporator fan motor (Motor Evaporator Fan, Evaporator Fan Motor Kit, Evaporator Fan Motor, Refrigerator Evaporator Fan Motor) circulates air through the food compartment for efficient cooling in refrigerators. The evaporator fan motor can squeal as its bearing dries out. The motor bearings can totally seize, preventing any movement. The motor coil can also burn out, preventing any fan movement. If this motor fails, the refrigerator compartment will warm up and eventually the freezer will reduce cooling as well. Excessive frost can build up on the evaporator coil due to lack of air movement. The motor can make a squealing noise when it is beginning to fail or will not operate at all when powered, and this is a sign it should be replaced. The evaporator is located in the rear of the freezer compartment. This part measures 2-1/2 inches wide by 3 inches tall by 1 inch thick, at its widest point. It is constructed of plastic and metal, and comes in black/silver. This kit includes the evaporator fan motor and harness.

Evaporator fan keeps going on and off?
For model number frs23r4cw2
Hello Larry, thank you for contacting us. The evaporator fan should stop when the freezer is in defrost mode. If it is randomly going on and off when the fridge is cooling that may be from a bad fan motor, you may want to take a look at the evaporator fan motor as it may need to be replaced.

I took out refrigerator from kitchen in march put in garage, plugged it up this weekend does not get cold, freezer part not cold either, got new capacitor from you guys today and still not cooling, what other part could it be.
For model number FRS6R5ESB4
Hi Ricardo, Thank you for your inquiry. There are a couple of parts that could cause that problem. The run capacitor is usually the first part to test to see if it is not working. The second most common part would be your defrost thermostat. Test that part with a multi-meter to see if it is still working. If it is still working, it might be your adaptive defrost control board that is the problem. This part would need to be tested by a trained technician. I hope this helps!

Would this cause only refrigerator section to warm??? error code sy ef condition evaporator fan circuit failure check/repair check wiring between evaporator fan and control board. check for 12vdc to fan between red and brown wires. check for variant voltage (depending on high or low speed) between yellow and brown. if correct replace evaporator fan. if error code still exist, replace control board.
For model number FGHG2344MF6
Hi Mary, Thank you for your question. The error code SY EF means that your temperature sensor has shorted and needs to be replaced. This could definitely cause your fridge section to be warm. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

The fan motor pulsates off and on all the time, ref. Is only 55 degrees but the freezer works.
For model number frs26rlecso
Hi Jack, Thank you for your inquiry. Based on what you described it sounds like the fan needs to be replaced. If it is making loud noises than that is a sign it is not working correctly. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Our refrigerator runs all the time (loud) and now the refrigerator is too warm to keep food cold, and we are using the freezer to keep our food cold since it is too warm to freeze food or water, but it is doing the job to keep our refrigerator food cold.
For model number FRT18IL6DBN
Hi Janet, Thank you for your inquiry. There are a couple of parts that may fix this issue. The 2 most common parts that will fix this issue are the defrost timer and the evaporator fan motor. Some other parts you may need to look at as well are the defrost thermostat, the temperature cold control thermostat, the fresh food door gasket, and the condenser fan motor. To verify which parts are causing the issue you will need use a multimeter to check the continuity of each part. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

The fridge is warm, the freezer is at 17. Can feel cool air coming into fridge section but feels like a breeze than blowing. Can seem to hear the fan running in the freezer. Btw there does not appear to be ice build up anywhere but haven't removed covers, been running for 6 weeks after sitting for maybe a year. What part do you think i need?
For model number FRS23R4AW8
Hi Kirk, Thank you for your question. There are a few parts that you should take a look at. The first part to check would be your evaporator fan motor. You should also take a look at your defrost thermostat and heater as well. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

My evaporator fan cycles on and off. It tries to start for 2 seconds and shuts off for 2 seconds. When compressor kicks in,it runs on and off. Sometimes it runs on with the compressor and shuts off when the compressor shuts off, only to start write back up and then cycle on and off until the compressor starts up again. This cycling runs for the better part of the day. Very seldom is the fridge in a satisfied resting state. Temperatures in the freezer and fridge are working fine. Thank you. Al
For model number GLRS237ZDQ0
Hi Al, Thank you for the question. I suggest first checking the wiring from the fan motor. Make sure nothing has come lose or is damaged. With a Ohm meter you can test to see if the fan motor is getting the proper power. If not you may need to replace the Adaptive Defrost Control Board, PartSelect Number PS2582247. This board supplies the board with power. Hope this helps!

Freezer is working but fridge is at about 55 degrees. Happened before and went back to normal after a day or two. Is it the evaporator fan?
For model number 10658129700
Hello David, Thank you for the question.If the fan motor is not running it will need to be replaced. If the fan is running you can test the Bi-Metal Defrost Thermostat, PartSelect Number PS11750673. The best way to do this is to remove the thermostat from the refrigerator so you can control the temperature of the sensor. You can let the sensor warm up to room temperature. With the sensor warmed up to room temperature the sensor should read approximately 6.2K Ohms at 68°F. With the thermistor submerged is a glass full of ice water, the sensor should be very close to 32°F which should read approximately 16.3K Ohms. If the values that you are getting are far off from these readings, then the sensor is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps!

I heard a crackling sound coming from the dampener and the refrigerator side is too warm. The freezer appears to be fine. I don't see any frost build up. There is a little bit of cold air coming from the freezer but i don't know how hard the condenser motor should be blowing. Is my issue with the dampener or the condenser motor or both?
For model number FRS26KF6EM5
Hi Mike. Thank you for the question. This sounds like an issue with the air damper. The motor could have shorted out and it is no longer opening to allow cold air through. I suggest having it replaced. Hope this helps!

Sorry, we couldn't find any existing installation instruction that matched.
bottom of fridg. would not get cool. Temp was 50-60degrees. The freezer compartment worked so I knew it was not the compressor.
I removed the fan housing in the freezer section by removing all the screws. (7) There are two screws behind the vents. I did not have an ice maker to contend with so this was very easy. There is only two wires to disconnect....the ground wire and the electricity supply. Then you remove the unit from the back of the housing cover by removing two screws. Then the motor is removed from it's housing by removing 2 more screws. 1...2...3 and you're ready to reverse the procedure. I am not mechanically inclined and this was easy. Saved myself perhaps $120.00. Repair folks wanted mininum of $60.00 just to come out. Part and shipping cost me 33 bucks.OH, DON'T FORGET TO UNPLUG THE FRIDGE. :>)

Motor on Evap Fan quite spinning
OK, what I really want to talk about is the really poor quality of the fan motor. This is the third time that it has failed (about once per year). Local maintenance shops do not stock the motor, hence the frozen food thaws before they can get a part. I always keep a spare motor so that I can immediately repair the fridge.

The repair is very easy - remove all racks in the freezer and then remove their slides. Then remove the screws in the back plate. Due to the ice maker, the plate will not come out, so just pull it up and tie it off. Remove the screws to remove the motor fan assembly. I did the repair with the power on, BUT BE CAREFUL if you do so. Uplug the power from the motor, and remove the assembly from the freezer. Disamble and replace the motor. Then revese the above and you're freezing again.

bottom of frezzer cold...top warm...refrigerator warm
I first located the wiring diagram under right frt. of fridge. Using it I troubleshot the problem to be the ADC module. I ordered the ADC module and blower motor that it controls(as a precaution since that is the device that the ADC drives)After removing the icemaker and all the back panels in the freezer you can access the blower motor. The ADC module is accessible after removing the plastic panels in the top of the fridge. Look for a burn spot on the module. Be sure to order the parts using the fridge model # and not the parts # on the wiring diagram(they will have changed since the model was built). Mine needed an updated wiring harness and deleted one of the dampner motors. Be sure to replace one wire at a time so not to get confused of wire location. Pretty straight forward repair if you have some mechanical ability. I have never repaired a fridge before, but have done car electronic work.

freezer was freezing, refrig was not cold
Unplugged fridge, removed all screws from inside freezer panel. Removed bracket, fan blade and wires from evaporator motor and swapped motor with new one. Very easy. Professional repairman wanted almost $200 to fix it. Total cost for me was $35 and 25 minutes on a Saturday afternoon. Thanks PartSelect for the quick delivery, low price and tips on the replacement.

Freezer cold, fridge warm
My evaporator fan was not working. This fan is located in the freezer section, (top), behind an access panel at the rear. Part of it's job is to blow cold air down into the fridge. At first I wasn't sure if it was the fan itself because after the fridge was unplugged an plugged back in, the fan would run for about 5 seconds then quit. So..I tested the auto defrost timer by manually cycling it with a screw driver, it was fine. I bypassed the defrost thermostat switch, no difference. Finally, I cut an old extension cord and connected it to the fan, it was the culprit.. It didn't run on 120. It did spin for a few seconds on initial power up only. After reading that this model may also have a flakey defrost thermostat switch, I ordered both the fan & new defrost thermostat switch. It was a very easy install for both items. No directions are needed, it's obvious when you get in there. Mine is runnng like a champ again.

The bottom of Refrigerator would not get below 48 degress. Freeezer was working fine.
First I unplugged fridge. I then removed cover that keeps fan protected. I then removed 2 screws that hold the evaporator motor in place. I then removed 3 wires running to motor. Very easy to remove, just pulled connections apart. I then replace the old motor with new.

The Sears repairman wanted to charge me $359 to repair. I did repair for under $40! Amazing what you can save if you have the time and knowlege to do it yourself.

Freezer worked great, refrigerator would not cool
Removed (unsnapped) plastic cover from back of refrigerator ( inside freezer compartment), determined that the fan was not turning, removed 4 screws from the aluminum back plate in freezer and tilted it down. Removed 2 screws with a nut driver, this allowed the fan to be removed, unpluged fan motor from the bace of the freezer and removed fan. Installed new motor and spent $38.00 to repair the refrigerator that would have cost me severial hundred dollars to replace. Thanks for the help

Freezer is working but not the refrigerator.
Removed the cover inside the freezer. Found out that the motor/fan was not working. Ordered through PartSelect. Got the parts in 3 days. Installed it for less than 30 minutes. Very easy. It saved me hundreds of dollars. We considered buying a new fridge but not anymore. , it only cost me $70 including shipment charges. (Make sure you unplug the appliance first before opening the cover. Remember safety first.)
