    On this model there are two fans top and bottom, is the motor the same? Is this something the home owner could replace? Thanks
    For model number GTS18GTHSRWW
    Hello Ted, Thank you for the question. The Top fan is the Evaporator Fan, Fix Number: FIX10063450 and the bottom is the Condenser Fan, Fix Number: FIX11721902. The Fan motors are different. Most customers have been able to perform the repair on their own. We hope this helps!

      Refrigerator Not Cooling
      1) Run Capacitor. Disconnected electrical power plug from the wall socket. Located the Run Capacitor in bottom rear of refrigerator, disconnected the retainer spring, pulled the wasted run capacitor off and plugged the new one into the slot and replaced the retainer spring. 2) Motor AC/DC Evaporator Fan. Opened top freezer door. Removed the shelving by carefully sliding the shelving pins upward and into the recessed slots for easy removal. Used Phillip's head screw driver to remove two screws holding the face guard in place and the 6" Crescent wrench to remove the bracket holding the fan motor to the bracket and the Phillip's head screw driver to remove two screws holding the bracket to the inside rear of the freezer. Unplugged the wasted motor AC/DC Evaporator Fan and plugged the new one into its place. Reinstalled all hardware as it came out. Refrigerator is now working like new. Simple and easy project saved me $100s of dollars fro having to purchase a new Refrigerator. My significant other was happy that it worked so well and saved $$. She was happy and went to Walmart shopping with the savings and brought me a pizza home. Everyone was a winner. Paul and Kimberly Juliana

      the evaporator fan was noisey
      I watched a fan repair video on line, I felt this was a repair that could easily be done by me. So I ordered the part and it came in about 4 days. The longest part was emptying the freezer and removing the shelf and the freezer wall which had 4 screws. The removal of the fan, 2 socket screws and the re-assembly took about 15 minutes, total time about 30 minutes. I did have a concern the assembly was not right but after looking at the wiring which was behind the freezer wall, I found it was a match. The repair was just as the video showed. The noise from the fan almost made me buy a new fridge, but now we are back in business, it works great. Thanks for the right part and there is quiet in the kitchen once more.
