Question about LG Refrigerators
That model number looks more like an item number. LG usually has a rather long model number.. The panels are typically held in by snap clips and can be tough to release! I look for any hole to get a small hook into and start pulling! It will be tough and will seem like it is gonna break but I haven't done any damage removing one yet.
It is uncommon for the fan motors to fail. They have an issue with interior moisture that will cause the fan to stop after it is built up with frost but will work once thawed. Please look at the model sticker inside the unit and provide that number for further assistance.

Testimonial: "Many thanks geob91.Yes you are correct the fan now works after full defrost as drain was not working+freezer ok but fridge compt warm.No holes to use to get back off but using fingers to pry open, nearly off.Maybe no need now but need to check drain etc.Model# is as noted AUS model 10-12yrs old. I appreciated your help/knowledge,THANK YOU.Hoping the issue is just due to frosting?Door had been ajar not for long though a wee while back I think(?)."

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?

Testimonial: "It was very good advise."
There are usually 3 or 4 locking tabs on the cover that just need to be pressed INDIVIDUALLY toward the bulb to release them and then carefully remove the cover. The ones with 3 tabs usually have and upper and lower tab then the thrid tab is on the side. Removed the upper and lower tabs by pressing inward to the bulb and then the cover will pivot out on the 3rd SIDE tab.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Remove any screws that secure the fan or fan housing so that you can
access the fan's wiring. Typically two screws secure the mounting
bracket in place (labeled "A" below). It may be easier to remove the
entire rear panel if the mounting brackets screws are inaccessible.
Spin the fan blade, it should move smoothly and freely. If the movement is not smooth, the motor should be replaced.
Test the fan for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should display a reading of zero ohms. If the fan does not pass this test, it should be replaced
