    • To access the fan - unplug the unit. Remove the rear cover with a #2 phillips screw driver. Once the cover is off you will see the fan and it is held on by 4 small screws and nuts. The electrical connector location on the circuit board is labeled "fan". Carefully unplug the connector and remove the fan.

What direction do the fans need to blow? Into the fridge or out? I took the fans out and didn't look what way they were blowing

I had to order a replacement from the manufacturer in China. I Googled the name on the fan and found the site. I ordered 2 replacements as my cooler has 2 levels. $14 and free shipping, but it won’t be here for 2 months. You might try entering the fan specs on your search engine (brushless fan whatever volts, amps, size). I got some hits on that but the amperage was too high as I need 0.8 amps. Good luck.

I had to order one from the fan manufacturer in China as Electrolux did not have any replacement parts. The name was on the fan so I was able to find the company website. I had already checked some of the appliance repair sites, but they did not have a 12 v 0.8 amp. Cost $14 for 2 fans and free shipping. The downside is that it takes 2 months for delivery.
