old fan made buzzing & whooping noises
Removed the back of the freezer to get to fan. Removed old fan. Put in new fan. Biggest problem was that ground connection on new fan is over an inch farther away and refrigerator wire would not reach. Cut the ground wire and spliced in about two inches of other 18 gauge wire and capped with wire nuts.
