S/N ST35 (2006)

Evaporator fan is not running.  The motor is warm, and it "cogs" (like a Duet pump) when turned by hand (with power applied).  Bad motor, replacement P/N WP2315549?

is it possible that it needs cleaned out and oiled?

some are easy to open, yet others can be welded closed...

worth a shot...

Martin ... reasonable suggestion but it's the evaporator fan motor in the freezer compartment, which isn't exposed to dust/debris like the condensor fan motor at floor level outside the box.

I haven't yet checked it with a meter.  I don't know what's a proper resistance reading so can only reference if it's dead or not getting power.  It's a "simple" SxS unit ... no electronics other than a defrost board which I assume is not directly involved in running the evaporator fan.
