Only if the fan noise is driving you crazy. the noise is probaly the motor starting to go out. you can replace it. it might save you money in the long run to replace it, if it goes out you could run into bad food in your fridge.

No idea how old this blower is, but we recently replaced the spark plug to get it working and it seems to be working fine, except the vibration is so much that it causes the cylinder to come loose from the...


The vibration is almost certainly an imbalance of the fan rotor. The device is very simple, the only thing attached to the motor shaft (and the only thing that moves besides the motor itself) is the fan. See if you can remove the cover over the fan. You will probably find that the fan rotor has some pieces broken off.

if the fan was loud you could have a bad evap fan motor,is there ice on the inside back wall of the freezer?if there is you have a defrost problem and ice could be built up around the fan motor and the blade,when the blade hit the ice that could be the noise you were hearing and now the ice is stopping it from spinning at all.if there isn't any ice on the wall you could have a bad computer board,part number wr55x10942,i've seen g.e.'s that when the water and ice didn't work and the temp was warm it was the board but when you say the fan was loud it makes me think you could be iced up in there.also if the fan motor was reving up and slowing down the board could cause that,let me know if there's like snow or ice on the freezer wall and i can help you out

Freezer evap fan vibration and noise


I suggest you unplug the frige and clean the blades of the fan of any dirt. If the fan is mounted with bolts through rubber gromets or washers take a caulk gun with 100% silicone and shoot silicone into these gromets or washers filling any voids between the bolts and rubber. Allow enough time to dry and see if this helps. please rate me
