In April, or fridge stopped cooling right before the warranty expired. We had it serviced and it was the evaporator fan motor. And we recall right before it broke that the fan sounded like it was hitting something while spinning. A couple days ago we noticed the same spinning and tapping noise and now the fridge is broken again. Anybody know the part number for the motor so I can replace it and why it keeps doing this?

A ticking noise is more often a sign of an obstruction of the fan blade rather than a defect in the motor itself. I would strongly advise someone to actually inspect it to determine the origin of the sound rather than just replacing parts on a guess.

Often a frost buildup is the cause in which case be sure not to defrost it prior to service or evidence of the cause my dissapear and not be found.

But here is the evaporator (freezer) fan motor for your model.
