The circulation fan on my GE refrigerator is making rattling

Resolved Question:

The circulation fan on my GE refrigerator is making rattling noises when it runs. Can the fan be lubricated, or is it best to replace the entire fan?
I have experience replacing similar fans; however, this one does not appear to be readily accessible.

S/N:PH 607620

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

you will need to replace the motor ,, the part number is XXXXX and you can pick one up at a local appliance parts dealer.

to replace it you will need to remove the icemaker and take the square vent off the back panel and the the screw on the panel and it will come out to replace the motor ,,, heres a picture to help you out / thanks Larry
