Access the evaporator assembly cover in the rear of the freezer section. In convertible units that can function either as refrigerators or freezers, and is located toward the bottom of the unit on the inner back wall -- if necessary, remove the two lower glass shelves and the crisper compartments.
Remove the screws securing the evaporator cover to the freezer wall, using a Phillips screwdriver.
Pull the evaporator cover away from the wall just enough to access the electrical connection behind the cover. Be careful not to damage the gaskets on either side of the evaporator cover. Reach behind the cover and disconnect the electrical connection from its wiring harness. Remove the evaporator cover from the freezer.
Remove the wires inside the exposed evaporator assembly from their retaining clips, then squeeze the quick-connect mechanism to detach the wires from the fan motor.
Remove the two hex-head screws that hold the fan motor mounting bracket to the back wall of the unit, using a 5/16-inch socket or nut driver.
Remove the two hex-head screws holding the fan motor to the mounting bracket, using the 5/16-inch socket or nut driver, then pull the fan blade off the motor shaft.
Examine the fan to make sure the blades are not damaged; if necessary, replace the fan itself as well as the motor. Slide the fan onto the motor shaft.
Attach the new motor to the mounting bracket, using the 5/16-inch socket or nut driver to secure the two hex-head screws.
Replace and tighten the two hex-head screws that hold the fan motor mounting bracket to the back wall of the unit, using the 5/16-inch socket or nut driver.
Reattach the the fan motor wires by clipping them back into the quick-connect mechanism, and set the wires back into their retaining clips in the same manner as they were attached.
Set the evaporator assembly cover back into place, then reach behind and connect the electrical connection into the wiring harness.
Secure the Phillips screws that hold the evaporator cover to the freezer wall.
Replace the shelves and crisper compartments if they were removed, then plug the refrigerator into its power source and verify proper operation.

I have a Norcold 1200LRIM fridge in my motorhome. It started beeping and getting a "no co" code in the display. I called Norcold and they told me to contact an authorized service center. I did this and they determined it was the cooling unit. That was replaced by them and there is no more beeping or error code but the fridge is not getting cold enough. The freezer is running about 20-30 degrees and the fridge box it running at 43-48 degrees. Any suggestions?

I have a Frigidaire refrigerator that I bought used 29 years ago. I did not get manuals. The cover over the fan inthe freezer compartment that has the temerature control on it broke. Is there any possibility of getting replacement parts for a unti that old. It still works otherwise and is very reliable. Where can I find the model and serial number on the unit.
Does it just need the knob or has it broken so far that it's not working at all? In any event even if you cant get the exact thermostat there are many others that could probably be grafted in. If it just needs a knob then have a knob put on it ...

We have a Frigidaire FRS202RG side by side fridge/freezer that is about 9 years old. In the last 3 months, it has begun frosting up in the bottom of the freezer with ice forming over the vents at the back. This causes the fridge side to stop cooling. I have to defrost the freezer unit to get it going again and it is happening about every 3 weeks. What could the problem be and can it be fixed by an electrician who is not a refrigeration expert? The serial number is LA91601026 in case that helps.

I have a Maytag MFI2569VEQ1 refrigerator with a Serial Number of KY2224097. I replaced the Rear Board (I think it is the HV Board) because the refigerator portion would heat up to 51 degrees for a few hours then go back down to 38 for a day or so then warm up again. NOTE: The freezer never warms up at all. It always stays very cold. When replacing this board I need to have the Run-Code for this refigerator.
