noise from fan blade hitting refrigerator interior panel.
The hardest part of the repair was emptying the freezer, next was getting the fan off of the motor shaft, The only reason the job was difficult is because i am 67 years old and not as flexible as i used to be.I had a tough time getting the fan off of the motor shaft, but i got it off with the use of a vise, and had to use the hammer and a socket to install a new fan blade.

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.

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!

Fan was not centered in the middle of the back panel opening.
Bent the motor bracket down, then using a rat tail file, elongated the holes in the back panel of the refrigerator to secure the fan in the "centered" position. This was a problem that was with the refrig. since it was made. The parts involved were perfect. NO problem at all installing them.

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......

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.

Fan making noise.
Remove ice maker and all of it's accessories in order to remove the panel covering the fan. Don't drop the screws!
Unscrew the lower fan bracket. You will see the lower red rubber grommet. Hold fan motor with one hand and push the fan off the shaft and into the compartment above. Then remove the round retainer thing below it by holding it and pulling down on the motor assembly. Install new grommet on upper part. and put it all together.
REMEMBER where the fan is on the shaft. It has about one inch of shaft placement. I put mine so that most of it was above the hole that the fan goes into and about 20 percent showing below the sheet metal.
Also check to see if your fan is damaged. Mine was not.
This refrigerator has been awesome! I have had many issues but have been able to fix all of them for the last 15 years!

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.

At times we hear a whirring sound that is not smooth. It seems to go slow then faster then will slow down again (never did this before, quite noticeable)--freezer does freeze food but ice cream seems always a little too soft. Can you help?
For model number gcl22kgresv

Hello Terry, Thanks for your question. Check the grommets for the evaporator fan motor and replace them if they are loose or broken. Aside from that, check the evaporator fan motor itself. It may have ice clogging it or the fan blades may be damaged. I hope this helps.

My fan is contacting the evaporator housing cover when it spins and making a lot of noise. I have replaced the fan blade already. Could it be the grommets worn out and not causing the blade to turn properly centered? The fan turns freely. Could the cover itself have warped over time and now contacts the blade as it turns? I assume the motor itself is ok, since it works. Thanks and you guys have a great site. It’s helped me many times!!!
For model number PSHS6MGZBESS

Hi Walter, Thank you for your inquiry. If the grommet has worn out they could cause this issue where they are not properly securing the fan blade. If you would like place an order for the grommet, you may order it online, through one of online chat sessions or by calling our customer service line and anyone would be happy to assist you. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

How do I know if the grommets need to be replaced. There is a terrible noise coming from the freezer. The fan spins freely, so I believe the problem is not the fan motor. Aside from the grommet, what else could cause the noise.
For model number GTH17DBDFRWW
PartSelect logo
Hi Margaret, Thank you for the question. If the grommets needed to be replaced the fan blades would have a wobble to them as they spun. If they spin smoothly and freely I suggest replacing the motor. Hope this helps!

How do you test control board to ensure that it is not fault for not starting
For model number HSS25GFPHWW
PartSelect logo
Hi Wayne, Thank you for the question. You can check to make sure that the overload and relay are getting 120 vac to it with a multi meter. If it is then the most likely cause would be a defective compressor. If no power then the control board would likely be the issue. Hope this helps!

My freezer is not freezing, could it be the evaporator fan?
For model number GSS251FRE
PartSelect logo
Hello Marissa, thank you for your question. I would recommend testing the following parts first. It sounds like the defrost cycle is not cycling off. The parts are : Defrost Thermostat Part Number: WR50X10068, Temperature Sensor Part Number: WR55X10025, Defrost Heater and Bracket Assembly Part Number: WR51X10055, and Evaporator Fan Motor Part Number: WR60X10185 first. If those parts are tested and are functioning correctly the issue would be with the electronic control board. I hope this helps!

Is the part PS963756 (Red Grommet) interchangeable with part PS284555 (Black Grommet)? The video under the title Evaporator/Condenser Fan Grommet seems to indicate this. Due to back order delays I cant seem to get a red grommet. With my make and model of fridge do I need two reds, two blacks or a red & black? The evaporator fan in the freezer part of the fridge is noisy and I wanted to change the motor and grommets at the same time. Thanks
For model number MTS17BBSERWW

Hello Shane, Thank you for the question. The Black Grommets can replace the Red for the Evaporator Fan Motor. We hope this helps!

Hi Rod, thank you for contacting us. You can use a hair dryer to melt down the frozen ice. If you find your ice maker making ice but not dumping, check the auger motor, part number PS4173183. This part is responsible for pushing ice through the system and into the ice bucket. We hope this helps, good luck with this repair!
