Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello Justin my name is XXXXX XXXXX you for choosing our service.This is how to test, put a window fan back there blowing on those coils. Keep it there and if the refrigerator gets cold and remains cold with that fan there then replace the fan motor. The reason is to be sure the compressor has not overheated and burned out. If it does not get cold and it is over 10 years old replace the refrigerator. The compressor will be bad and the repair will be expensive.If you found my answer satisfactory please login if you are not already logged in and please leave an ok or better rating.

It appears since yesterday afternoon at 3:30PM, they refrigerator has dropped >20 degrees since having a fan on the back of the unit.
How does one replace the fan motor and where do you get the part? Sears?
Yes that is a good place Justin. Are you able to find the model number in the fresh food section? I can link you.
Space out the numbers or I will not be able to see them. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 like that.
1 0 6. 8 7 3 0 8 6 0
Fan motor should be in tomorrow via mail. Any specific directions for changing the part out? I am not sure if new motor comes with new fan blade or not?
Thanks, will let you know how it goes once I get it in and replaced
