How to get the fan blade off the shaft?
Answer Hello George. The fan blade pulls off the shaft of the fan motor.
Im replacing the fan motor with a new one I got from you. Is the green wire ground and should the fan come on as soon as its pluged in?
Answer Hello Brian. Yes, the green wire is the ground wire. If the control is turned on in the unit, then the fan motor will come on when the unit is plugged in. On some models, there is a few seconds delay, and on other models, it is immediately.
The freezer is too cold, the bottom seems to be too warm. the compressor seems to be working all the time. The fan is not working, but turn freely by hand. Also, lots of ice build-uo. I-ve already replace the bi-metal switch. Thanks.
Answer Hello Alain,
If the evaporator coils are getting impacted with frost then you will want to check your defrost heater to make sure it has continuity. Since you already replaced the defrost thermostat, if the heater checks ok then you will want to replace the defrost timer 2314156.
I'm replacing the evaporator motor. The old one does not have a grounding wire. The new one does. Where do I ground it?
Answer Hello Diana,
The grounding wire on this unit will connect where there is a grounding wire on the left side right above the evaporator at the back wall. There is already a ground there just put that one there as well.
Freezer does not freeze, had tested and refrigerant ok.... Fan motor?
Answer Hi Mike. The evaporator fan motor part # W10189703 needs to always run when the compressor runs. If you see a definite complete frost pattern on all of the evap. coil surface then you can safely bet the freon is flowing well, (no ice ball restrictions). You need to use a volt/ohm meter part # TJMA-DM1 to un-plug the fan electrical connector and test for 120 vac going to the fan motor. If there you need to replace the fan. If not then look at the wires at the plugs leading up to the control assy. part # R0161092 it sends the voltage to the fan and compressor. Thank You.
Hi - My husband and I ordered this new evaporator motor AP4364011 because the fan in our freezer is not running any more (freezer is fine but fridge is not cooling enough)... Is the motor in the bottom of the fridge? Does this part come with the new wiring as well?
Answer Hello Allison. If you have a top mount unit, with the freezer on the top, the motor is located in the top behind the freezer wall. If you have a side by side, the motor is located in the middle behind the freezer wall. If you have a bottom mount freezer, the motor is located in the top of the freezer behind the freezer wall. The evaporator fan motor W10189703 does not come with any wires. You will use the wires on your unit. Hope this helps.
