Evaporator fan motor is located in the freezer compartment behind the back wall. To access it you must remove the shelves and the back wall which is held in place by screws. Then you can remove the old fan motor and install a new one in the reverse order that you used to remove the old motor.

U-line 75 WC makes a screeching noise on and off during the day. What can I do to make it stop?


You may have one or two fans on the unit. One normally next to the compressor and one in the evaporator With the unit running listen if the noise is comming from inside or outside. Outside is easy, spray Q20 onto the motor and run untill you are able to buy a new one and replace. If inside, defrost a few hours then remove inside panel and locate the evaporator motor. Spray motor shaft liberally then motor will quieten down. Replace when possible.

MOTOR NOISE and noise stopped after closing the fridge door


Hello
Is the noise on the inside or the outside? Most often noise is caused by one of the fan motors going bad.That being said. If the noise is on the inside it's the evaporator fan motor. If it's on the outside in the back then it's the condenser fan motor.
I hope this helps you. Please leave feedback.
Thank you.

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.

Very loud clicking noise from my LG LSC26905TT refridgerator


first you have to remove all shelves in the freezer,then remove all screws in the interior rear panel. In some cases you'll have to remove a couple of shelf tabe located on the side wall. Once tha panel is removed,the fan will be in plain sight. The blade is usually aboue 4-5 inches in diameter and is attached to a small motor with 2 wires and a green grounding wire. Note: you might want to check why it's making noise. Is there ice built up around the blades?Are you getting too much moisture entering the box thru faulty door gaskets?

Evaporator Fan Motor noise is excessive for this refrigerator. GE Profile CustomStyle Model PTI22SFMARBS Serial# SF900146V


Despite my urge to vent about GE refrigerators, I'll keep this short.

If you have a constant squealing noise from the evaporator fan in the freezer, there's a good chance the fan just has failing bearings, and replacing the evaporator fan might solve the problem.

But if the noise is intermittent; quiet sometimes but sometimes buzzing loudly, then my bet is there's nothing wrong with your evaporator fan. It's a problem with the design of GE fridges: They don't defrost completely. So ice builds up on the back freezer wall, etc., and on and around the evaporator fan. That's not a problem when the fan is in "low speed mode". But open the door, get the fridge warm, and the fan kicks into "high speed mode". That's when the noise will start, as the fan blades and assembly warps under speed to hit ice and start vibrating.

Acid test is this: While the noise is occurring, turn the fridge temp (not freezer) control up as high as you can without turning off the fridge. That will make the fan shift into low speed. If the noise stops, you got ice on the fan, my friend.

In that case, unplug the fridge, and get a hair dryer and blow warm air into and onto the evaporator fan area. Maybe gently whack the fan area with your hand a bit, to knock the ice off. Once you get all the ice off, turn it back on. If it runs on high, without any noise, the problem is fixed ... until the next set of high humidity days. I plan to post a video about this, once I get it edited to remove the expletives. ;-)

GE will sell you a "moisture kit" for $340, which may fix the problem, but only if your fridge is out of warranty.

If your fridge is still under warranty, GE will tell you there's nothing wrong and that maybe you just need ear plugs.

Refrigerator making a whinning noise.


sutty, you have a 2 speed DC evaporator motor in this model. There should be at least 60 seconds between any fan speed changes. On the back side of the refrigerator you have a main board. Unplug J2 connector on the board. Check for 13VDC between pins j2-3 and j2-8, then check for 8 to 13VDC between j2-3 and j2-4. If the voltage is correct I would suspect the evaporator motor. If the voltage is incorrect, then the problem is in the main board. Pins read from left to right 1 through 8. Catriver.
