GE Evaporator Fan replacement
Posted 03 June 2006 - 02:14 PM
Here's a breakdown of the freezer. In order to get the evaporator fan into a position to work on it, you've got to remove the air duct, which in turn needs the auger motor and solenoid assembly removed, and also needed the icemaker out! The main rason for this is due to the wiring all being tied together, which brings me to....
Here's the fan itself. It comes with a 6-pin connector, only four of which are used. What they don't tell you is that on the existing fan, the two unused spaces have wires in them. Also, the wiring has a "boot" moulded around it where it exits the "orifice" (part 247). I finished up cutting the wires off the old and new fans, splicing them and sealing it with self-amalgamating tape. Unit finally back together after about 2 1/2 hours.
I know I'm out of practice. Ally that to the fact that this is a very small freezer (unit is overall only 20 cubic feet) and difficult to work on. But, is this kind of experience typical on these?
