I have received the evaporator part I ordered and as it says in the description it is not like the one in the picture. are there any instructions you can direct to that explains how to install the evaporator since the new one does not have the same blue and white wires as the old one?
When you install the new motor you will need to use all parts that come with it. There is not specific instructions for doing this. To install the new part you will need to disconnect the power to the unit and access the fan motor. Once the fan motor has been accessed you will disconnect the plug on the side of the fan housing. Remove the fan housing from the unit by removing the screw on either side. Once out, pull the fan blade off and push up on the bottom of the fan to release the retaining clips from the holder that wraps under the motor. Once out you will use the new bracket to install but still use the same grommets. To attach the wires you will put the blue wire to one terminal and the white to the other. There is a smaller terminal for the green ground. The connector will get reconnected to the housing. Once you have this done reinstall the housing and connect the refrigerator connector to it and run the ground wire to the left where the other ground wire is located on the evaporator sheathing. Reassemble unit and plug in.
I purchased this motor kit but it won't turn on. It is getting 110V, is there something I am missing?
Answer Kevin, No, at his point the only thing your missing is a model number. If you have 110-120 VAC on the wire connector, and the connector is properly seated and locked in place, the evaporator fan motor should run. If you have a PCB control, you also want to check and make sure the neutral leg(white wire) is in tact. most controld open and close the neutral leg of the circuit, in order to run the components. Good Luck
Can I test the motor (part #AP4009649)to see if it is working properly? Thanks.
Answer Hello Mark. Yes, you can test for power coming to the motor 12002744. If none is there, you will need to replace the motor kit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
