Evaporator Fan Installation Kit For KSS, KSC, and other Whirlpool/KitchenAid/Kenmore/JennAir/Maytag Refrigerators

Another helpful tip from the members of a PCB repair shop!


There has been a lot of confusion surrounding the installation process of a new evaporator fan motor for these KitchenAid (and other Whirlpool Corp.) refrigerators.  Whirlpool provides one replacement kit that is applicable to three different style of refrigerators.  Depending on which style refrigerator you have, you may or may not have to use one of the two jumper harnesses included in the kit to connect the fan motor to the main control board.

Skip to the end of this post to read the installation instructions published by Whirlpool Corp…

BUT, we can sum it up for you in a much clearer fashion:


2) Remove the original fan motor. Disconnect the fan motor from the jumper wiring harness that goes to the main control board, but leave this jumper harness in place.  Whirlpool suggests using a flat head screwdriver to unlock the plug, as it is fragile and can break.

3) Install the new fan motor where the old one used to be.

4) Depending on which style of refrigerator you have, you may or may not need to connect the motor to the control board via one of the two jumper wiring harnesses included in the kit:

Built-in with bottom Freezer

Plain Jumper Harness for Built-in Refrigerators with Bottom Freezer

Add this harness between the original one and the new fan motor.
Counter Depth

Jumper Harness with Defrost Bi-metal for Counter Depth Refigerators

Remove the original bi-metal jumper harness and replace it with this new one.
Built-in Side by SideNONE. Simply, use the original jumper harness that was already in the refrigerator.

The installation kit should have include a black dot sticker.  After the fan motor replacement is complete, apply this sticker to the right of the main power ON/OFF switch behind the upper grille in the machine compartment.

Restore power to your fridge and everything should be good to go.  Remember, get your refrigerator control board problems solved by PCB repair companies!


Original Installation Instructions Per Whirlpool Corp.:

This evaporator motor service kit is supplied with one evaporator
motor that can be used for a KitchenAid built-in bottom freezer,
KitchenAid built-in side-by-side, or Counter Depth refrigerator.
This evaporator motor service kit is also supplied with a new
jumper harness for the KitchenAid built-in bottom freezer
(Figure 1) and a new defrost bi-metal harness for the Counter
Depth refrigerators (Figure 2).

Plain Jumper Harness for Built-in Refrigerators with Bottom Freezer

Figure 1: Plain Jumper Harness for Built-in Refrigerators with Bottom Freezer

NOTE: Must remove existing harness on Counter Depth ONLY
and replace with harness in the kit

If the evaporator motor is being replaced on one of these units,
the jumper harness connected to the motor must be removed
along with the old evaporator motor.

1. Unplug the refrigerator or disconnect power.

2. Use a small flat screwdriver to unlock the plug, slight
pressure is needed to release the lock. Use care, the lock
is easily broken. The two harnesses contained in the kit
are required when the new motor is being replaced.
Replacement of the harnesses to the individual product is
needed for a proper repair and for proper operation.

Figure 2: Defrost Bi-Metal Jumper Harness for Counter Depth Refigerators

3. If the product is a Counter Depth refrigerator, the old
defrost bi-metal harness connected to the evaporator fan
jumper harness must be removed. This harness contains a
9-pin connector and the defrost bi-metal. For the Counter
Depth refrigerator ONLY, replace the old defrost bi-metal
harness with the new defrost bi-metal harness contained
in the kit (Figure 2).

If the product is a KitchenAid built-in bottom freezer,
connect the jumper harness (approximately 265-mm)
contained in the kit (Figure 1) to the new evaporator fan

If the product is a KitchenAid built-in side-by-side, no
jumper harness is needed.

4. Secure all connections.

5. Replace all parts and panels.

6. Plug in refrigerator or reconnect power.

7. Perform the service diagnostic mode by pressing and
holding the Water Filter Reset key first then the Power key
and hold both for 3 seconds. Verify that in step 3 of the
service diagnostic mode, the evaporator motor receives a
green LED indicator on the display for the Counter Depth
product or “01” on the display for the KitchenAid built-in
bottom freezer and for the KitchenAid built-in side-by-side

NOTE: If the call service indicator is still flashing, press
the Over Temperature Reset key.

8. After replacement is completed, the black dot that is
included in this kit needs to be placed to the right of the
main power switch behind the upper grille in the machine
compartment. (See Figure 3.)

KitchenAide KUIO15NNLS Ice Maker – Not Making Ice

KitchenAid KUIO15NNLS is Warm and not Making Ice

This page will explain how to troubleshoot a whirlpool ice machine and allow you to determine if your KitchenAid ice maker is hot due to the control board (wp # 8173919) or something else.  Control board 8173919 can be rebuilt at a fraction the cost of buying new.  A good place to have your control boards rebuilt is

I will try to isolate the problem to a section of the machine that will need to be serviced.  As always, when working with any home appliance, make sure that the power is removed before starting these procedures.  These steps assume that the inside of the ice maker is above 43 degrees.

To get to the compressor, condenser, condenser fan and control board, remove the following front cover.

After, the cover has been removed, you should see the following:

Now, remove the electronic control board covers.  You should have a view of the compressor, condenser, condenser fan and control board.  The control board looks like the following:

With the view of all the components mentioned above, plug in the ice machine.  Because the unit is above 43 degrees, the freeze cycle should start within 2 minutes of power up.

Step 1 To verify that the ice maker is in freeze mode:

2 minutes after power up, make the following observations:

– Condenser fan should be spinning

– compressor should be on.  Compressor should be vibrating, and the condenser coils should be warm to the touch after the compressor has been running for a couple of minutes.

– The water pump that circulates water over the evaporator coils should be running.

Step 2 – Condenser fan and pump were on, but condenser coil is not getting hot:

In this case, there is probably something wrong other than the control board.  To completely eliminate the control board, unplug the ice-maker and then disconnect the pink wire from the control board.  This controls the hot gas solenoid which controls whether the ice make is heating or cooling.  By disconnecting the pink wire, once the freezer is re-plugged, the hot gas solenoid will be de-energized and the system should be in a normal refrigerator like cooling mode.

Now, re-plug the ice-maker and observe the same things from step one.  Does the condenser coil start to warm up?  If not, the problem is with compressor, PTC relay, overload switch, hot gas solenoid/valve, bin thermostat or low freon.  If you are absolutely sure the compressor is on, the list of suspect things drops to compressor, hot gas solenoid/valve or low freon in the system.

Step 3 – Condenser fan on, water pump is on, condenser coils are hot:

At this step you are sure that the machine is in freeze mode by either removing the pink wire which drives the hot gas valve or measuring that the hot gas solenoid is de-energized.  This means that the evaporator coils should be getting very cold.   To check this, the top cover of the ice-machine must be removed.  There you will see the evaporator coils.  Here is an illustration:

Check that the evaporator coils are getting very cold and there is water flowing over them.  Ice should soon follow.

If there evaporator is hot or stays at room temperature, there is something wrong with the sealed system.  This could be low freon,  hot-gas valve,  other blockage in sealed system.

Step 4 – Everything Seems to be Working.  Condenser Coils are Getting Very Hot, Evaporator is Very Cold.  Is there Ice?

At this step, you have run your ice maker for about an hour and you are sure the evaporator coils are getting cold.  You also have seen that the water pump is functioning.  The next logical step is to see if there is ice where it is supposed to be.  Here are instructions for that.

Look behind the following ice chutes:

Behind these flaps you will see the ice chute, rear frame pipe and front frame pipe.  See below:

Now, look up on top of the ice chute.  You will see the bottom of the evaporator.  This is where the ice forms.  Can you see ice?

Freezer Fan Not Working – GE Refrigerator

This page addresses a common freezer fan problem with GE fridges.  Modern GE fridges use a main electronic control board to control 12V  fans.  A list of models for which this posting applies is shown at the end of this posting.

There are basically 3 reasons that can cause a fan not to work correctly.

1.  Freezer door switch or wiring to the switch is stuck in a position that signals the control board that the freezer door is open.

2.  Fan or wiring to fan has the problem.  There could be a short or open in the fan or wiring to the fan.   Also, the fan could have an obstruction that keeps it from spinning.

3.  Control Board is damaged

Checking the door switches:

For safety, I recommend checking the door switches with the fridge unplugged!!

Backprobe the connectors to perform the following procedure.

With fridge unplugged and the freezer door open, check the resistance between L1 and freezer switch pin 7 on J2 connector.  The resistance should be very low ( less than 10 ohms).  Now, close the door and re-measure the resistance between L1 and freezer switch pin 7.  It should now be open circuit( very high resistance).   If this is working, your freezer door switch is functioning.

Repeat the procedure above for the fresh food door switch.   With the fresh food door open, the resistance between L1 and pin 6 should be less than 10 ohms.  With the fresh food door closed the measurement should be open circuit.

If these door switch tests pass, go to the next step.

Check the Evaporator Fan and Wiring:

Now that you have verified that the door switches are working correctly, the next step is to check if the freezer/evaporator fan is the problem.  We will introduce a trick to force power to the fan and verify whether the problem is in the fan or fan wiring.  Using a paper clip like the one shown below,  we will short pin 8 (12 Volts) and pin 4 (control power to fan)  together on connector J2.

The following shows a picture of the paper clip installed.  Make sure that the paper clip is far enough into the connector that the metal paper clip is making contact with the metal inside the connector.

Now, plug in the fridge.  The freezer fan should stay on continuously.  If the freezer fan is not spinning, make sure that paper clip is pushed in far enough to make connections to the metal inside the connector.  If the fan still doesn’t spin or is spinning at a slow speed, the fan or wiring should be replaced.
