Welcome...Not to difficult of a job.First unplug the unit....If you have a ice maker installed..First remove the ice maker..Once the ice maker is removed..Then remove the screws at the back INSIDE wall of freezer..Tilt the wall from the top down..Disconnect the wires leading to the fan motor..Then remove the fan motor..Replace in reverse order..

Mine is not built like that....I have had refrigeratorrs like that in the past but not this one.

The freezer compartment is molded all in one piece....both sides plus the back plus the top. Only the bottom is seperate.

 

The fan motor appears to be in a plastic housing drooping down from the bottom of the freezer compartment into the refrig compartment..

 

I have checked the model number and it is correct as labeled on a paper label in the refrig compartment on the left top of that compartment..

 

Let's try again okay....PLEASE .....

 

Thanx, Tom

OK great thats what i was wondering..This is a older model..Yours has the evaporator installed into the floor of the freezer..If you notice the divider between the fridge and the freezer..This is the part you need to remove..First remove the freezer door as the hinge bolts to the divider area..Once removed ..Remove the divider ..Then slide the floor out from the front of fridge..This will give you access to the evaporator coils..The defrost neater and the fan motor..Unfortunately this is one of the more difficult to repair due to the fact that the components are installed in the bottom of the freezer..Thanks Bob
