First, thank you all for posting such clear and helpful information.  Frustration with local repair service has led me in your direction  and I am attempting to make repairs myself.

 

Refrigerator is fine, but freezer is heating up.  Hot frame and stopped fan (and your forum) led me to diagnosis of bad condenser fan motor.  For a day I could get it started again with a little push, but then I ordered a new motor anyway.  10 minutes after placing order fan will not restart anymore.

 

I had a bit of a hard time getting the dead one and its bracket out, but finally did and I'm cooling it now with a small desk fan until new parts arrive tomorrow.

 

I think that I should be ok to install the new one but just curious if there are any pointers based on past experience.  I don't want to mess anything else up while trying to fix this.

 

Will be happy to donate to the beer fund when finished.  I'll need a few as well.

 

Thanks for the help.

Would need serial number. Is this the solid bracket or three separate ones? If three separate cut threads on motor with one of the screws provided before installing motor.
There is a huge difference between 10 years experience and one years experience ten times over.

Serial number is M2167764.  There are 3 separate pieces each screwed into the back of the motor and then they go through the metal piece which covers the condenser.  It was difficult to get them out of the metal piece.  While trying very hard to unscrew the screw which also held the grounding wire the bracket in the back popped out and then I was able to twist the other 2 out.  It worked, but I wouldn't call it smooth.
