Sis went down to our elderly parents basement and was alarmed by the noise the old kenmore fridge in the basement was making and unplugged it because she was afraid of it catching fire. On checking I found that the evaporator fan, in the back of the freezer had bad bearings and was screeching loudly. A replacement fan from the local appliance repair shop was almost $70.Parents did not want to spend big money on an old refrigerator, and they were going to replace it. Found this on amazon and thought why not? Had to do some trimming of the mounting bracket but it works just fine and is very quiet. The old Kenmore cools like new now. If you are buying this I recommend you also check the coil fan, usually located at the bottom of the refrigerator. Be sure that it is free to rotate and blow air over the coils in order for the refrigerator to cool well. Put a drop or two of turbine oil on the shaft where it goes into the motor housing once a year or so to keep it that way. You can buy this...
I got a really great price on this item. It came in just a few days and was really easy to install. If you can use a screwdriver and know how to unplug the fridge then you are good...
If your fridge is making a errrrr noise (almost like a loud hum). It is the bearings in the fan motor going out. This affordable part will fix it and ordering it will save you hundreds over a professional.
Also the way I diagnosed it was to take the back of the freezer out. If you take out those two screws and slide the brackets UP that hold the freezer shelf, the back panel just slides UP also.
Spin the blade a little by hand and it will probably work for a little while. I left it that way with all of my food in there and just got the blade spinning each time it made the humming sound, until my evap motor came in.
Fixed good as new now!
Order took three business days to ship. USPS delivered in 36 hours from Lancaster PA to Minnetrista MN...very good. Package from USPS (Priority Mail) was undamaged, but internal contents (in box) were not packed for shipment (zero packing) so motor/bracket was bent 90 degrees and penetrating box while all other parts had been ripped from their bags...hope all aren't shipped this way. Being a universal fit made straightening/repair OK, but in addition, motor ran in wrong direction, so had to be disassembled. Never seen one run this direction, but knew I owned it at this point and original was screaming, so I reversed the armature. Supplier was "snarky" when talked to about delivery. Several of us have noticed that Amazon seems to not push orders immediately to suppliers. Purchase was not a great experience, however, USPS got it right. Unit has been installed for over a week and it seems to work fine, hence final rating of four stars.. I know you want seller/shipping...
