Hello,
I have a kitchenaid KSSP42QJS00 and the condenser fan is starting to fail. It has stopped spinning a couple of times, but I can restart it by tapping the blade. The airflow also seems diminished since the fridge doesn't cool down as much as it should when the top panel cover is in place (i.e. removing top panel seems to increase air flow and freezer stays at least 5deg colder). I checked for the condenser fan motor replacement (WP2169135) but it looks like it is no longer manufactured.

How can I find an equivalent replacement part? This refrigerator has generally been very reliable, and I would prefer to keep it running than to replace with a new model that will likely be less reliable.

Thank you for any pointers.
