  • 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
