How is the Evaporator Motor attached to the rear bracket?
Answer Hello Jerry. There are two screws that clamp the two brackets around the evaporator fan motor. If you remove these screws, the front bracket will pull off, allowing you to remove the motor. Hope this helps.

Is there a way to test the evap fan out of refrige? Defrost heater is bad, defrost sensor also a possible bad .
Answer Hello Nhegge. You can apply power to the motor and if it runs, it is good. If it does not run, it is bad.
My fridge doesn't seem to cool like it used to. It's 15 years old, a Maytag side by side. The coils are clean in the back. The condenser fan is running. The evaporator fan is running. I defrosted the coils below the evaporator fan in the freezer. I have a black Embraco condenser / compressor. It gets so HOT that at times I cannot keep my hand on it. Is this normal ? Any suggestions please ?
Answer Mark, Yes, it is normal for the compressor and the smaller tubing to get "hot", in fact that is an indication that the sealed system is functioning properly. You may want to purchase an accurate "cooks" pocket thermometer from a local supply source, or TJMA-PT160 or
TJMA-PDT392B So you can check the temperature of the food products in the freezer and refrigerator, Insert the probe into a liquid article and give it a minute or two to equalize. The temperature should range around 37 to 38 degrees. In the freezer insert the probe into a bag of frozen vegetables the temperature should range between -3 and +3 degrees, 0 being ideal. adjust the controls accordingly. Check and make sure the doors are closing and sealing properly, and there are no articles hanging over the edges of the shelves or bins, and no articles laying up against the walls, this can interfere with the air flow in the compartments.
