A few months ago i received an error (er cf). After looking it up and finding out its a condenser fan issue, I did a search for the part on sears's website and was able to find the replacement part (EAU62025701). I even verified with a local appliance part store and I purchased it. However, once i recieved the fan, it seems that the pin is different from the older one. Please see attached pics. Did I unplug a wrong pin? any help would be appreciated. Thank you

Thanks for the reply. when you zoom in on them both you see that are both the same as the new motor.

You're right. Sorry, I was confusing the images.

So it looks like that is the appriprate replacement. The wiring might have to be spliced together. Maybe just the connector can me spliced onto the new motor?

There are a couple of the original part number motors up for auction on eBay. As near as I can tell from the pictures they look to use the same connector as that replacement motor.

I can't explain the different connector on the fridge although the fridge does look like it was serviced previously. I don't know why that connector would change though.

I did have to replace the compressor 2 years ago. Should i hire an appliance tech to splice the wiring? what do i tell them to bring? i dont want multiple trips.

the old fan works but every 2weeks i get the er cf message and have to unplug for a few mins to reset. Could oiling the barings work? where do i apply the oil?
