Tyler You helped me with a Thermador PG486GEBLP/12 error

Hi TylerYou helped me with a Thermador PG486GEBLP/12 error code 4 3 and identified that cooling fans are not running properly and a hall sensor built into the side of the blower wheel is giving the error.Ordered part number 00641059. Upon inspection of the old fans verse the new (00641059) I note that the old fans do not have sensor connection nor do they have the size bolt holes to connect the fan switch. C attached pictures.Do I have the correct part? Should I just proceed and attach these new fans with some adjustment? By the way the fans switches are relatively new and functioning.Look forward to hearing back from you.Thanks.

I have amana refrigerator model number ARB2257CSL serial

Hi. I have amana refrigerator model number ARB2257CSL serial number 10236478EC. attempting to reverse to door swing, but the handle can not be moved from one side of the face to the other, meaning I would have to flip the door upside down to accomplish the reversal. The brackets appear to be able to handle this flip as there are some on both sides. The question I have is the plastic piece inside the fridge will have to be revamped and flipped also. Removing (partly) the seal I don't see any screws holding it in place. not sure if/how it can be flipped. Any ideas?
