    How do you diagnose further to make sure it is the fan motor that needs replacement?
    For model number HTS18GBMDRWW
    Hello Joseph, Thank you for the question. If the fan is not spinning or spinning slowly it should be replaced. You should also replace the fan motor if it is making a lot of noise. It is good to make sure there is no dirt and dust build up on the fan blades. Hope this helps!

        Noisy Evap Fan Motor
        Could not haven been easier. Simply unplug fridge, remove air duct mounted on rear panel, release panel itself, pull fan blade off, disconnect grounding wire, detach fan motor bracket, disconnect wire harness to release fan motor, install new fan motor and reconnect, secure with bracket, reconnect grounding wire, reposition fan blade onto motor shaft, reinstall rear panel and secure screws. Remount air duct and plug appliance back in. VOILA. All done in less than 15 minutes!!!

        My fridge and freezer were not getting cold enough.
        The Fridge and freezer were not very cold except for in the very back of the freezer (where the coils are). So I opened up the back of the freezer by first removing the dome light cover and removing all the visible screws. I then lifted up and pulled out the vent in the center of the back panel and removed the two remaining screws on the back panel. At that point I removed the back panel exposing the coils and fan. I saw that the fan was not spinning so I used a screw driver to manually turn the defrost timer found on the top of the inside of the fridge. Once I had turned the defrost timer once complete rotation, and the fan didn't turn on, I was pretty sure that it was the fan. I still wasn't sure that the fan was the only problem, but I couldnt see anything else that wasn't working properly. I decided to take a chance and order the fan motor (not the entire assembly. it is easy to replace the moter only leaving the original fan blades and housing). Once I got the part, I unplugged the old fan motor, put in the new fan motor, and pugged it in and it started spinning right away. I put everything back together the same way I took it apart and it has worked great ever since.

        Noisy fan in freezer compartment
        Removed shelf by pushing to left and lifting up on RH end. Removed screws in plastic cooling tower and slid tower up. Pulled back wall of freezer compartment out, RH side first. Removed two screws from fan bracket, unplugged fan wiring harness by compressing connector spring clips and pulling joint apart. Pulled fan blade off (note location of blade on shaft for reinstall alignment purposes), removed both green grommets.Then just reinstalled new items.My philosphy on repairs of this nature is to replace all related parts that could be contributing to problem. The parts are cheap compared to the aggravation and inconvenience of doing the repair several times until you fix the problem. You don't need to purchase the compression ring if you buy the fan blade as it has one already installed on it. Problem solved, though now that the noise is gone am hearing fainter similar noises from lower fan. Should I be surprised, both fans are of similar design.

        Fan was making annoying noise and rubbing against the frame of opening.
        Removed old fan and replaced the fan with new one.
        2 years ago, the refrigerator was under warranty and tech replaced the fan but I found that the fan was not the original spec fan. Apparently, the fan that the tech replaced did not fit opening.

        Now, my refrigerator works no problem. Save a ton of $$$ by doing it myself. Do not have to buy a new fridge and this one works perfect.

        Loud noise coming from freezer. Evaporater fan was still spinning but making loud noise
        Removed fan housing from top of freezer, then the two screws holding the rest of it in place. Then two more screw and removed the vertical housing in back of freezer. two more screws and I was able to remove the whole back plate. I unplugged evap motor wire from back of freezer wall and unscrewed motor bracket. once motor was free, I removed the blade, unscrewed ground wire and installed new motor. I then plugged wire back in to ensure new motor worked and put everything back. Super Easy!!
