Frank,

Not that major a repair,

The best way, is to remove the whole assembly,

Be careful, there's a lot of sharp edges,

And that housing is a "snap" fit into the base of the compartment.

The condenser Fan is located in the middle of
machine compartment. It cools down the subcondenser
and the compressor.
1. Lift up the rib under the motor support.
2. Pull the support motor.

Not a lot if information from the service manual.

Good Luck,

Frank,

As I mentioned, not a lot of service information,

As best I can tell, and remember,

The fan blade is held in place by a small metal spring clamp, on the center hub of the fan blade, or is a pressure fit and will pull off.

The fan motor itself is mounted to the support assembly by 2 rubber grommets, one on each side of the motor shaft/housing in the center of the motor itself.

I guess I mis understood your original question.

Joe M.

Thanks again Joe the new motor was a breeze to replace as you had stated in your first reply, The fan blade was the only problem I had and after removing the spring clip and putting a squirt of wd-40 on the shaft it finally slid off without breaking. The new Samsung fridge fan motor is now running like the new one it is. Thanks so much

Frank,

I had a feeling you'd do fine,

We're glad you're up and running.

It was a pleasure to help.

Good Luck,
