    The thing ain't that old, like 1.5 years or so. Damn Malaysians.
    I have a Mfg extended warranty but ordered the little motor from the same joint that got me the part for my washer, I don't want some dumb ass repair guy in here fooling around with my stuff anyway

    Rather than replace the fan you could cut an opening in the fridge door and wire up one of those attic exhaust fans with a timer so when the defrost cycle ended the exhaust fan would come on which should pull enough air to spin the blades on the evap fan motor to get it started. Of course a little wd-40 on the motor shaft should be used as well. Once you confirm that works you will then need to buy a 2inch 4' x 8' styrofoam insulation sheet from Home Depot(just to be cool checkout on the line for Contractors). When you get that home then cut it to the size of the door you put the exhaust fan in and use a little of that duct tape from the GOOman guy then each time after the exhaust fan starts the evap fan shut off the exhaust fan and and tape the insualtion to the door so the cold air stays in.

    See it is a simple solution to a simple problem who needs techs anyway?

    We put all GE in our new house 2 years ago. All stainless.

    Not impressed with GE. Ice maker was replaced under warranty.
    But now part of the plastic chute broke off and ice comes pouring out way too fast.

    I looked at the condenser coil and it was like some round looking contraption. Looked like a pain in the arse to clean, which I need to do...

    GE = POS

    When I piped in my ice maker I left a coil of copper in the back so I can pull it out on the rollers. I was told by my appliance guy, Franny, that this is normal procedure.

    On occasion this frigde dances back a little and the coil of copper starts to vibrate. Really annoying when you have friends sitting around the kitchen table sucking down some Coors.

    All I have to do is put my hands on the unit and gently pull it forward and the noise stops. My friends are impressed that I can do this. "My Lord he has been doing refrigeration so long that he just lays his hands on the refrigerator and it is cured. Say Alleluia!!

    I have a 2 year old GE too and the thing sometimes makes this incredibly annoying noise because the fan in the freezer is off balance and vibrates at just the right speed. It's amazing how a $5 part can ruin a $1000 fridge.
