Removing the fan from a fridge/freezer

I have a Blomberg Fridge/Freezer (freezer at the bottom) and recently the freezer has not been getting as cold as it should be. I have checked a few things and I am pretty sure the fan is not working. From the rear you can turn the fan unit in the freezer body holding (which I am sure can't be right) but you can not pull it through because (I assume) you have the fan the other side. To get to this I need to access it from inside the freezer. Inside the freezer on the roof is a housing with the cooloing elements. It seems that I need to remove this to get to the fan which is at the rear behind them. The trouble I am having is removing this housing. There are no screws just what appear to be plastic plugs holding it in place. I have levered these plugs out but cannot lower the housing as it seems to be attached to the cooling elements. When I move it down the elements move down so I don't want to move it too much in cased they break. Can anyone in the know give me a clue or am I on a loser and looking at buying a new machine? TIA for any advice Steve

My one experience with US type is that the amount of wire is insufficient to work on it after you get to it, i.e., you can remove it but it is almost impossible to reattach a new one. Had to use squeeze connectors to lengthen the leads to get enough room to work.
