I removed the lower panel, then found two screws at the bottom of the plenum cover assembly. After removing those, it seems to still be attached at the top. Do I need to remove the ice maker assembly to get to the top portion of the plenum cover? My fan is hitting the plenum cover also, but it is now bound up, and it doesn't spin at all now.
Answer Tom, Yes, you need to remove the icemaker, along with a few other things, Here's some basic help "Evaporator Fan The evaporator fan is located in the upper rear portion of the freezer compartment. This fan supplies cold air to the freezer and fresh food compartments. The evaporator thermistor must be replaced when replacing the fan. 1. Remove 1/4-in. icemaker bracket screws (4) located at the four corners of the bracket. 2. Remove 1/4-in. ice dispenser drive mounting bracket screws (2) and remove the brackets. 3. Remove 1/4-in. upper evaporator fan ductwork screws (2). 4. Unlock the tabs and remove the lower evaporator fan ductwork. 5. Remove 1/4-in. evaporator cover screws (4) and remove the cover. 6. Remove 1/4-in. upper evaporator fan duct work screws (2), located at the lower portion of the
ductwork. 7. With a small flat-blade screwdriver, unlock the tabs for the icemaker and dispenser cables. 8. Slide the upper fan ductwork out.
9. Disconnect the evaporator fan wiring harness." Thanks and Good Luck
The fan is hitting the plenum cover. How do I remove the cover to see what is wrong? Do I have to remove the icemaker? I don't know what parts I need until I get in there.
Answer Hello Norm. You will need to remove the bottom panel from the inside of the freezer to remove the plenum fan cover WR17X11477. Once removed, the fan cover will pull down and out of the freezer. You can now access the evaporator fan motor WR60X10185. Hope this helps.
