The model number you posted does not come up and I can not tell you exactly which part where is located. Verify the model number and repost it. Also if this is not American model then we are not able to get any information.

Thanks for your response Gene ... The original problem was water dripping into the frig compartment and collecting in the bottom plus the frig compartment was not very cold. Tag in frig wall says assembled in Mexico and the model # is cr11ffwr. Did a search for the heater with that # and I get an available part number for the heater from a site on the net. No luck finding a parts illustration though. There was a print on the back of the refrigerator that was helpful in trouble shooting. Fan was stopped when I opened things up and the heater was hot. I think a gremlin got into the mix because the fan bench tested OK so I checked for voltage to it and It was not there. Went to the Thermostat control and started to pull the connectors off but walah the hot (orange) lead gave an arc and things started working. Frig compartment is holding at 38 degrees and I open the vent control a notch. Will recheck today and wrap a peice of copper wire around the heater to the drain tube for drain insurance. I will give you my update after rechecking my daughter's frig. Sure would like to find a parts illustration/breakdown for numbers and locations though. Thanks Again

Unfortunately there is nothing available for this model on-line.

Hi Max,

Remove the two screws holding the freezer floor (#25 on the break down diagram) and pull the floor out.

Remove the rear panel and the fan is yours.

- The part number for the evaporator fan motor is AP3139953

Here are the break down diagrams for the Whirlpool refrigerator Model ET18GMXHN00

I have a ge mod GSS201EPD WW SER# GG276416. I have the same problem. I have to remove the back panel in the rear of the freezer and thaw out the evap coil every 7 days. It doesn't have a timer like the old ones , but a defrost board. I haven't checked the defrost tstat yet but I hope that could be the prob as it is the cheepest part. Could this be the defective part? It should check N.O. if warm and N.C. if cold?

Hi Keith,

You were right, the defrost cycle controls by the main control board on the back of the fridge.

Unplug the refrigerator, remove the blue wire from the "defrost" terminal J9 on the control board and measure the resistance between this wire and the neutral orange wire (pin 9 on the J7 connector). The freezer must be cold at this time.

If the reading is about 22 Ohms then the main control board has to be replaced. It is recommended to replace the board together with both freezer thermistors.

If the circuit is open then you have to remove the rear panel in the freezer and check the defrost heater (#230 on the break down diagram)and the defrost thermostat (#240 on the break down diagram) for continuity.

If any one of them is open - it has to be replaced.

- The part number for the main control board is AP3950129

- The part number for the defrost heater is AP4355467

- The part number for the defrost thermostat is AP3884317

- The part number for the freezer thermistors (they are identical) is AP3185407
