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(?)."

There is only one screw and then you just pull it out. Remove all the shelving first.

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?

SOURCE: LG refrigerator GR-B258jvc - replacing light bulb

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.

How do I remove back panel inside of freezer on lg lrfc25750?


Once you have the racks etc out, you should see some round plastic plugs which hide the mounting screws, carefully use the point of a knife to pick these out. The screws for the back panel are then visible. Once they are out, the back panel is also held in with clips which are part of the back panel. Start at one of the top corners and carefully ease the panel out and away from the back of the freezer. If your model has the fan motor attached to the back panel, there will be a wiring plug you will need to undo to fully remove the rear panel.

REFRIGERATOR AND FREEZER NOT GETTING COLD. ERROR CODE 5Y.MODEL NUMBER LGUS2642LF2 SERIAL NUMBER 4A23305873


That error code is "SY" and not "5Y" and it is for the evaporator sensor error. You will need to replace the sensor.Here is the part to order.

The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.



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.

The freezer is working but the frig. is hot, when is the freezer fan supposed to come on ? How do I test it - I have a multi meter but do not know when it is supposed to be getting power.


How To Test the Evaporator Fan 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.
Caution: Before testing the fan, unplug the refrigerator to avoid an electrical shock hazard.
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.

evapfan.jpg 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.

evapfanout.jpg



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

Replace motor evaporator


IF you have a bottom mount freezer then remove the Ice Maker and four panel screws. The air outlet at the top of the panel can be removed with flat blade screw driver. If you have a side by side there is four panel screws for the metal panel. Once you remove the panel in the Freezer and you will see the Evaporator Fan Motor. Once you can see the Fan Motor, just slide it out and remove motor and replace with new.

The fan is making too much noise


Hi. You didn't state which fan you are having issues with, so i will address both areas.


The condenser fan is located behind the refrigerator. It may be necessary to remove an access panel to reach it. This fan has a shroud, and if the fan blade becomes warped, it will rub against the shroud, causing noise. This fan blade is whole,and it can be removed and replaced if this is the case. Ok, the next problem spot will be the evaporator fan.

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 it. This fan also is protected by a shroud as well, and it will make noise if the fan blade is damaged.


NOTE_ If the fan blades are not warped, and rubbing against the shrouds, this will indicate that the motor that rotate the affected fan is damaged. It must be replaced, in this case.

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.

My fridge freezer made by samsung is on the blink


These fridges have an evaporator fan motor on both sides - the freezer and fridge side. The freezer can maintain it's temperature because that fan is working fine. I had the same problem, and replaced the evaporator fan motor on fridge side, and it solved the problem. Also, if your fan motor is not working well, or stops working, the evaporator is prone to ice build up, and will prevent proper cooling. You may want to open up panel on fridge side and see if that's the case. Taking a blow dryer to the evaporator and surrounding area (while fridge is off), or letting it sit for a few hours might solve the problem. Ultimately though, it appears as if these fan motors are prone to failure, and need to be replaced.

Remove coil on back of refrigerator very gently and support the coil against a kitchen chair or counter. On the back of the refrigerator there is an access panel. Remove 4 screws holding the cover. Remove the bottom of the freezer compartment by removing screws and pulling bottom straight out. Remove Styrofoam panel from freezer by cutting tape along side edge. Once the Styrofoam panel is removed you will see fan blades. O n the front of the fan blade there is a spring. Pull the spring off by pulling straight forward with pliers or fingers. Remove the 3 screws holding the fan motor to the refrigerator in the rear access panel. The Motor should now be free. Unplug the plug from the connector by lock latch and pulling straight up. Now you must free the fan blade from the fan motor. Grasp the fan motor and pull straight out. This fan blade is really hard to get off. Try separating the two halves of the blade, where you removed the spring, with a screw driver. The motor is available from Repairclinic.com. Good luck.

Freezer/Evaporator motor replacement


On my Kenmore bottom freezer, the evaporator fan motor is located behind a grill in the top center of the freezer compartment.  Remove drawers and door.  Pop off the grill by pushing on the tab in the center of the grill and then dislodging one side.  If you see the fan and confirm it isn't working, then you will have to remove the  icemaker.  Disconnect the plug at the rear of the icemaker by pressing on both sides of the plug and pulling.  Then remove the three screws holding the icemaker and remove the icemaker (it will probably have water in it, not ice). 
Push the icemaker female plug through the back panel.
Remove the temp sensor cover on the upper right side of the panel.  Careful.  You need to pop the cover loose, then slide the cover off the sensor. 
Now remove the four screws holding the back panel and remove it.  Try not to let the panel hit the evaporator fins, which are directly behind the panel.  Also, you'll have to be careful to work the temp sensor up over the top of the panel.
You have clear access to the evap fan now.  Unsnap the temp sensor from the tubing on the right.  Disconnect the  evap fan wiring (left side) and another connector on the right.  Remove two screws, and you have the evap fan assembly in your hand.  Pull the fan blade off the motor shaft (friction fit) and loosen the motor retaining clip. 
Voila! You have the old motor in your hand.
Good luck.
