I plan on doing this "re-build" this weekend. PLEASE let me know if the correct Evaporator Fan Motor is # 4681JB1027C or # 4681JB1029E as I will have both of them. Additionally, the Bracket # 4810JJ0003A, for the correct Evaporator Fan Motor, is on back order. Will the old bracket from the old cover work with the new motor on the new cover?
Thanks!

I wish I could help with the part numbers, but our company always has to call our tech support to go on LG's website for exact part numbers. If you bought both fan motors, make sure the plugs fit the connector, and I would note which way the original motor spins(clockwise or counterclockwise). If the connector fits and it spins in the right direction it should work fine. You are refering to evap motor and not the ice room fan motor right?

Thanks BryanS! I am sure I will be able to figure out what is the right one and yes I am asking about the Evaporator Motor. But if anybody can give me the correct part number and if the old bracket will fit it on a new cover I would really appreciate it.

I don't see any reason why the bracket wouldn't work. I haven't changed that cover before, so let us know how it goes.

4681JB1027C is the correct efm part number as listed by LG. There are no service bulletions regarding a change in the efm. If you are installing the 4681JB1027C motor, being it is the correct one, it will work with the existing bracket. The part specs did not change, only the number ( due to a vender change most likley ). You change all that and I cant see you having any more problems. Have fun.

To ALL of you for your EXPERT advise and helpful pictures, THANK YOU so much as I did the recommended "re-build" yesterday.

I installed both the new IF Fan Motor Assembly and new Evaporator Fan Motor (along with a new fan blade, grommet and seal) on a new and redesigned cover, and yes the old bracket worked, along with a new Defrost Sensor and Fuse.

More than twenty-four hours have passed and everything is still quiet AND working!!
