I have an amana refrigerator evaporator fan motor that makes a very loud noise for a day and then the refrigerator will shut off. I took the motor out and it sounds like metal on metal when I turn it manually. Can I just lubricate the part that turns and put it back? I'm having trouble finding a replacement. Also, is the refrigerator shutting down because the motor is over heating or the fan is doing it's job or would that not be related? thanks

I ordered a new motor from Amazon twice. One part number that an expert here suggested and then one that amazon suggested with the model number from the fridge. Both motors were different shapes than the orignal and the holder doesn't hold them in place for the fan to spin without hitting something.

See the picture below. That is the fan it calls for.

The problem is the ordering from Amazon, you are probably not getting an OEM motor but an aftermarket.

see the problem is - the picture you sent me is actually a 3rd type now. The shape of the parts above and below the part that spins are what sit in the holder and the original has these rubber boots on it. Maybe I can take them off though....

Oh , yes, the rubber pieces do have to be reused, they do not come with the new motor.
