For Whirlpool Assy, Evaporator Fan Motor (Part Number: AP4008960)

the evaporator fan in my fridge was making allot of noise, so I bought one of these replacements from another company and installed it. It was nice and quiet for about 1/2 day and by day 3 it sounded like crap again. I figured I just got a bad one so I bought another from this website. This one also makes rattling noises although not quite as loud (it has only been a day). Whats up? Am I doing something wrong, or are these motors just poor quality? Some more info. When first installed they sounds fine. It takes 1/2 hour or so for the noise to begin. Once it starts if I just apply a little pressure to the center of the fan blade the noise quiets down. It looks and sounds like crappy bearings to me, but perhaps there is a trick I just dont know about...

ANSWER JV , We're not aware of any issues with a noisy motor, You may want to check and insure the assembly is mounted to the cover properly, Press on the evaporator cover, while the fan is running, to see if the noise subsides. If it does you may want to consider a small foam pad at he attachment points to cushion the noise and vibration between the two components. Thanks and Good Luck
