VF Series Freezer and Ice Storage Cabinets fitted with UF40 and UF50 freezer units shown in the table below
are affected by the change. To identify the freezer unit model number, refer to the unit rating label located on

Fan Motor Identification
Refer to the fan motor manufacturer label on the fan motor to identify old and new fan motors. The old fan
motor assembly is a one piece assembly including the fan motor, fan blade and wall ring/mounting bracket,
and is manufactured by EBM. The new fan motor assembly is made up of three parts including a fan motor
and a wall ring/mounting bracket manufactured by UNADA and fan blade manufactured by AirDrive.
New Fan Motor Part Numbers
The new fan motor assembly is made up of three parts. When replacing an old fan motor with a new fan motor, order all three parts (shown in the table below).
Note: Condenser fan motors and evaporator fan motors are programmed at different speeds and therefore
have different part numbers.
Follow the procedure below to replace an old fan motor with a new fan motor. Ensure all work is completed by an authorised service agent and that all applicable electrical safety tests are done once the work is completed.
