I am having difficulty figuring out how to access the evaporator fan. I have looked at the manufacturers schematic and know that the fan is in the back an requires access by removing the bottom panel of the freezer compartment. However, I cannot figure out how to do this. I have watched numerous videos for similar types of refrigerators but all seem to have an easy access back panel in the freeze compartment. Any help with a “how to” would be greatly appreciated.

Remove the screw in the air tower and remove the shelf. Remove the ice maker. Remove both doors and the center door hinge (remove both screws). Remove the screw on the right side of the mullion and remove the mullion. There might be some wires there so careful. Use a small screwdriver or putty knife and pry out the two tabs behind the metal sides them pull the base assembly straight out.
