WR60X10300 - Dropped right in and plugged into the harness. Called customer a few days later and all is back to normal, so I suppose that could be considered a valid replacement!  :cheers:

Glad that helped!  :welcome: I asked the same question. The model isn't that old and an evap fan is a main functional part, so why isn't one still available? Now, the real question is why hasn't someone at GE made a supersedure to the -300 motor since it is a direct replacement? My guess is that being a Chinese-built model, no one is paying attention to service on these units, especially the factory in China. I worked for Frigidaire's International division for 25 years (they sold US models everywhere outside North America AND purchased & resold foreign-built units) and believe me when I tell you that China does NOT pay nearly the attention to service and parts like we do here. Heck, I had to tell THEM when they had mistakes on parts for THEIR UNITS! :cheers:

Great! Thanks!

Man, has it changed in our field! Used to be you could get functional parts for 15 - 20 years or more. In fact, I remember finding a few parts for customers for 30 year old units. In the early 1990's, I chased down a clock-timer for a 1962 Tappan 'Fabulous 400' stove in England - this thing was nuts. Sat on either a metal cabinet with doors or your own cabinets. Had a side-by-side double oven on top at eye level and a pull out cooktop drawer for the burners. I even located a bake burner for a 1959 oven for a woman in Scotland around that same time! The factory actually had one sitting in a storage room and someone was good enough to dig for me and found it. No way you'll find that stuff today. Everybody throws things out.

Dab,  I have one of my apartment customers - most of units still have pink appliances.    They are old as dirt but still work.   Units still have refrigerators that are mounted like cabinets on the wall (no self defrost).   Those things cool great.   Nothing cools like R-12.   Guy is cheap,   wont remodel.       They also had GE built in the counter units,   called Jamestown units.     Cooktop part of SS counter.    I believe these are about 60 years old.    Still working.     Let's see this crap their building now last 60 years.
