Evaporator Fan Grommet - Red

$9.92
Fix Number: FIX963756
Manufacturer #: WR02X12008
Manufactured by: GE

Product Description

The evaporator fan grommet is used to provide a cushion between the fan motor and the motor mounting bracket in your freezer. This genuine OEM part is about one inch in diameter and is red in color. It is part of the motor assembly found behind the evaporator fan cover at the back of your freezer. If the fan has become quite noisy, it may be time to replace the grommet. To complete this repair, you will need to remove everything from the freezer including the ice tray, the fan cover, freezer floor, evaporator cover, and the fan motor assembly. The tools you will need for this job include a pair of needle nose pliers, a Philips screwdriver and a small flat blade screwdriver, along with a 1/4-inch and a 5/16-inch nut driver. Please ensure that you disconnect the power supply to your fridge before you begin this repair.

    Very Noisy Intermitent Evaporator Fan
    I just followed the "how to" videos which were very helpful with one exception. I turned off the circuit breaker in the garage rather than pull the fridge out from the wall to unplug it which was easier. This also eliminated the need to raise the leveling feet so the rollers would touch the floor for a pull out. I replaced the grommets and the fan blade as well but really didn't need to as the motor was the culprit. Works like new now and an expensive service call was avoided.
