Is this the fan motor that is in the freezer? Also, does this part come as I see it in the view with the motor and bracket?
Answer Yes, this is the fan located in the freezer section. This evaporator fan motor kit comes with the motor, bracket and fan blade.

Freezer is working, refrigerator isn't cooling.
Answer Hello Dixey,
This can be due to a bad fan motor but if it is running, the problem is most likely a defrost issue and an ice build-up. The common failures are the defrost bi-metal W10225581, the defrost heater 2210895, and the defrost timer 482493.

The first thing to check for is to see if the evaporator fan motor is running. If the fan motor is not running then test to make sure that it is getting 120 vac. If there is power to the fan motor then it will need to be replaced. If the fan is operating then It sounds like you may have a defrost problem with the unit. Check and see if there is any frost build up on the back wall of the freezer. If so, you will need to test the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. They should read closed for continuity when cold. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. I will include a link at the end to assist you how to use the multi-meter if needed. If both parts are good, you will need to replace the defrost timer. Once the problem is repaired, you will need to thaw out the ice on the coils before the unit will operate properly. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Is the R in the model # for "R"ight hinged doors?
Answer Hello A.C.,
The "R" has nothing to do with door swing as far as we can tell. I'm sorry but this unit is so old we cannot even pull parts up on it anymore.
I have a Kenmore, Upright freezer, model # 1068275580. Can I modify/remount this fan/motor to operate as an evaporator fan, inside my freezer?
Answer Hello Ken. No, the part you need 1106739 has been permanently discontinued by the manufacturer and we don't know of any source or replacement for the part.
Hello my freezer is working fine however my fidge is not cooling at all. Is this what I will need? Thank you.
Answer TC, Possibly, A quick easy test, open the freezer door, can you hear the fan motor running, and /or feel the air from the fan being blown out towards you, if so, the fan motor is fine, as long as there's no frost or ice built up on the freezer back wall. You'll have to check the air diffuser 2157253 located in the back of the refrigerator compartment in the center of the ceiling. This allows the air to circulate into the refrigerator. If it is clogged with ice or broken, the refrigerator won't cool properly.
Will this evaporator fan motor fit my fridge? I'm hoping it's what I need. The freezer works, but upper fridge part is not cooling off. Thanks!!
Answer Hello Jill. No, 12002744 is the evaporator fan motor for your model. If the motor is not running and there is power to it, you will need to replace the fan motor.
I just replaced the evaporator motor and the refrigerator still doesnt get cold. I checked the damper and it's open but the fan doesn't seem to push enough air. Is the motor 110 volt or could it be hooked up backwards?
Answer Hello Barry,
The fan motor 482731 on the model you listed is an ac driven motor. Hooking it up backwards will have no ill effect on the motors' operation. You should make sure the fan blade hasn't been put on the motor shaft backwards as this will slow the air circulation. You also need to make sure the air control knob is properly attached at both ends. If the tab on either end is broken, the air control adjustment will be completely ineffective.
