I have a Kenmore Elite model no is 59673502201 and it stop cooling in both the frig and freezer i replaced the condenser fan motor and it worked so i replaced the back and the unit will STILL NOT GET


Do you hear your evaporator fan running in the freezer drawer area?
If not, then that's the fan you should have replaced.

If your compressor is running and both the compressor fan and the evaporator fan are running, check the back wall of your freezer compartment. If it is frosted up, then you have a defrost problem.

If it's not frosting up, disassemble your freezer drawer section and remove the back panel in the freezer to look at your evaporator coil.

If it's partially frosted at the top, or bottom, but the rest of it is dry looking, then you've got a leaking sealed system.

If it's lightly frosted all over, then you have good coolant flow and you need to start looking at your thermostat and damper up in the fresh foods section.

Good luck!

In the freezer side there is a panel in the back. behind the panel are the evaporators. over the evaporators are heaters you will find one of then broken from water dropping on it the bottom one was broken on mine. put a fan to the freezer and thaw it out. get the model and serial numbers and look on ebay.com. or there is a place called http://www.repairclinic.com/
These are not hard to change but above all UNPLUG THE FRIG OR THEY MAY PUT YOU IN ONE.

I have a Kenmore elite bottom freezer model. The fan started making a funny noise.


The evaporator fan is located at the back of the freezer. It may be necessary to remove obstructions such as the contents of the freezer, freezer shelves, ice maker and the rear inside panel of the freezer. The rear panel may be held in place by retainer clips or screws. Remove the screws or depress the retainer clips with a small screwdriver. Check the fan for warped blades. if the blades are warped or mis-aligned, replace the blade. This fan also is protected by a shroud as well, and it will make noise if the fan blade is damaged and rubbing against it. Check the rear condenser fan as well for faults. It is possible that the noise is coming from the motor itself. If that is the case, you will need to replace the affected motor.

Kenmore fridge. freezer top works, but bottom doesn't.


Either your fan has stopped working, or it is not defrosting. Take the back panel of the freezer off and see if the evaporator coil is iced over, if it is replace the deforst heater, and the deforst thermostat. If the compressor is running the fan if the freezer should be running. Also make sure both your fridge and freezer controls are centered. Putting the freezer on the coldest setting acutally shuts off airflow to the fridge.

Evaporator fan noise. How do I access the evaporator fan motor to replace it?


Turn off the refrigerator. Remove the freezer shelving and bins. Remove the screws holding the rear panel inside the freezer. Repair or replace the fan motor.
You may also have to remove bin supports from the side wall to get the panel out depending upon your model. The model number posted is incomplete.

Freezer/Evaporator motor replacement


On my Kenmore bottom freezer, the evaporator fan motor is located behind a grill in the top center of the freezer compartment.  Remove drawers and door.  Pop off the grill by pushing on the tab in the center of the grill and then dislodging one side.  If you see the fan and confirm it isn't working, then you will have to remove the  icemaker.  Disconnect the plug at the rear of the icemaker by pressing on both sides of the plug and pulling.  Then remove the three screws holding the icemaker and remove the icemaker (it will probably have water in it, not ice). 
Push the icemaker female plug through the back panel.
Remove the temp sensor cover on the upper right side of the panel.  Careful.  You need to pop the cover loose, then slide the cover off the sensor. 
Now remove the four screws holding the back panel and remove it.  Try not to let the panel hit the evaporator fins, which are directly behind the panel.  Also, you'll have to be careful to work the temp sensor up over the top of the panel.
You have clear access to the evap fan now.  Unsnap the temp sensor from the tubing on the right.  Disconnect the  evap fan wiring (left side) and another connector on the right.  Remove two screws, and you have the evap fan assembly in your hand.  Pull the fan blade off the motor shaft (friction fit) and loosen the motor retaining clip. 
Voila! You have the old motor in your hand.
Good luck.
