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.

there should be just some sort of snaps, or hooks holding the guard on. I have yet to see a fan that doesn't. but if there is any, take the clips off of the guard, and clean the blades.

I just bought the hamption bay littleton, and I know it's cheap, and it's wobbling all of the time. I have seen other littletons not wobbling on high speed. HELP!!!

wobbling means its out of balance .. make sure that all of the blades are properly seated where they bolt down .. if one is sticking up a bit then it will be out of balance .. check the the tips of every blade is the same distance from the ceiling when rotated to a fixed position .. if one is off then its mounting bracket may be bent or mounted wrong .. finally its possible that the blades simply dont weight the same .. i have a strobe light that makes it easy to see which blade is the problem .. but you can just guess by experimenting ... one way is to mark one blade so you always know where your started .. then clip on one of those spring clips normally used to hold groups of papers together ... clip it to one blade (as a weight) and see if it makes it better or worse .. rotate it around each blade until you find the best place .. then move it toward the tip or toward the motor and see if that makes it worse or better .. with a bit of work you can eventually balance the fan nicely .. they make stick on weights to do that job .. in fact there is a fan balancing kit that includes moveable weights as well as stick on weights ... if the fan is new and way out of balance then they will probably give you a new set of blades for it .. when its balanced properly then it should have very little or no wobble ..

How to change fan on 92 vw golf

It's best to remove the battery for enough room the remove the fan assembly. There are 4 10mm bolts holding the assembly to the radiator. Unplug the fan and disconnect anything held to the assembly. Remove the assembly, remove the clip holding the fan blade to the fan, remove the fan blade, unbolt the 3 10mm bolts that hold the fan to the assembly and remove the fan motor.

Had my #10 blade sharpened and now have several probs w blade and

You may know the first part of this, but...
Ordinarily, the blades are removed and replaced as follows:
There is a small gun-metal colored bar at the very rear, just below the back of the blade. It pushes inward, in the direction of the blade. Push it firmly in and pull up on the teeth of the blade. It should pop upward. You can then remove the blade from the tongue that it sits upon. When you want to put it back, slide the blade back on the tongue, then, WITH THE MOTOR TURNED ON, push the blade down to its seated position. It will click into place.
In your case the retaining clip may have broken off. With the blade removed, push that same gun metal colored bar in. You should see the other end of it move in unison just behind the nylon cog that moves the blades when they are installed. Check the tip of that other end to see that the "turned back on itself" rounded portion is there. That's what holds the blade on. If it is missing, you will have to replace the part (the tongue part has to be removed to do so since the retaining clip part is under it, with a small spring holding it in place). A new one can be obtained, I think, at:

You say that you had the blade sharpened. By someone who knew what he or she was doing, I hope. It is possible that whoever sharpened it, reassembled it improperly so that the area where the retaining clip connects is too far toward the rear of the blade (opposite the teeth) and the clip is unable to click over it into place. If you look at the back of the blade, you will see the small slot just about in the center where the nylon drive cog fits to move the blade back and forth when it is mounted. Just below that there is a plate with two tabs extending toward the teeth. The part of that plate (toward the teeth) that has a slight indentation is where the retaining clip clicks into place. If it is not doing so, then either the clip is broken or the blades are not assembled properly. You can try (careful blade assembly is tricky in regard to getting them straight) to loosen the two screws and very carefully move that plate enough (very little should be required) toward the teeth so that the clip will hold. I would make very sure that the clip is not broken before doing that.

Hope this is helpful to you.

    Removing fan blades

    Joey Temal is right. After removing any small metal retaining clips (which are obvious and easily removed), you have to pull down ridiculously hard to get the fan blade off. Alternate short jerky pulls with steady downward traction.
