    Thank you! I am a pretty handy woman, but that darn fan clip was a hassle, both gtting it off and on. Its the little tips you guys share on these videos that make the difference!

  2. markw999 says:

    Word of warning: that fan is harder to get off than is demonstrated on the vid. Both the clip and the fan itself are rarely that simple to pop off. Have done several. Work it slowly, take your time and try a little WD 40. The fan itself is over $10 so it's worthwile to save if you can.

    .My refrigerator is very old, but still kicking like new; except the fan blade just got warped. The spec plate is faded and I can't make out anything from it. I have a fan blade just like the one in the video. Can you tell me the model number for the fan blade you just installed?. Thank you in advance.

    I think this is the problem with my GE fridge. It occasionally makes a really loud whining noise. I block the fan with the bristles of a paint brush and the noise stopped so I'm guessing this part needs replaced. I'm not super mechanical, but I think I can do this.

    I'm not an expert. After connecting the new fan but before replacing the evaporator cover (about 8:40 in this video), I would have turned on the electric power just for a moment and made sure that the new fan is working properly and blowing air into the freezer compartment. Then I would turn the power off and put the covers back. It would be a shame to put the whole thing together, turn on the power, and find out that I made a mistake somewhere or the fan is defective and the thing doesn't work.

    Exactly what I needed. I'm pretty handy at fixing things but this was the perfect video for my part. Quiet as a mouse now. Well, compared to before. The only thing I did wrong was push the fan down too far. Just watched the video again and did it right the next time. Thanks for this help!!!!!

    I have the same refrigerator as in the video. I can't for the life of me get all the freezer panels to fit back in correctly after a repair. I've tried everything and it's driving me crazy. I can not get both the back panel and the floor covers on in the correct way like in this video. It's like they changed shape while I was defrosting the evaporator coils. It feels like maybe the coils stick out farther after I melted the ice? Does that make sense? Any advice would be welcome. Im goin nuts here.

    Our Evaporator Fan was making terrible noises with the temperature fluctuating in the fridge section. I removed the unit and found the grommet on the shaft side had partly disintegrated with bits falling into the fan shaft dome that rubbed on the shaft collar inside. I used a safety pin, a wire brush for car detailing and an X-acto knife to remove dozens of bits from inside the dome. That took 20 minutes. The rear grommet was OK, so I swapped front to rear grommets & reassembled everything. The fridge is now back to running without much perceptible noise of any kind and the temperature is stable again.
