Hello, Can someone please tell me how to replace a faulty condenser fan motor on a GE french-door refrigerator model no: GFE28GMKBES.  The fan motor has 4 wires & is a 12-volt dc motor.  The part no is: wr60x23363.  I see no screws and think it slides out somehow.  The motor comes on the bracket that covers on the end of the round condenser coils.  I think there must be a tab or something to release the housing but I don't see it.  Please help me if you can.  Thanks

It should pull right out from the front.


Here is a link to a service manual to see for yourself:

This sure will help.  Thank you very much.  I'll let you know how it goes.  Hope it won't take to long to get the part (it's on BO).  I put a small fan on the floor behind the refrig. and left to back panel off.  The customer called today and said "It's cold and making ice again"  YEAH!!!
