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.
