Hello David Riome,
Why are you discovering a FACTORY ASSEMBLY
does not fit ...??
(just be sure... KITCHENAID was one of my worst).
and keep in mind...
only bends a very few times before
it breaks (soft, brittle & very difficult to repair).
The FAN must be free of all obstructions to function.
If it is out of balance, worn or broken in ANY WAY...
Make sure all wires and lines are ABSOLUTELY
NOT in contact
with the fan bracket...
(secured out of the way).
Most of these newer units have aluminum evaporators
and a FAN BRACKET will easily wear a HOLE in
your REFRIGERANT LINES
Like a saw... It may take a couple of years but
sure as winter follows autumn... $$$$$ damage
from conflicted refrigerant lines.
Move the wires and lines away from the FAN.
