This was the second part we replaced. The first part was the Temperature Control Assy; which had been replaced several weeks earlier by a repairman, seemed to fix the problem for a few weeks and then the problem returned. Thinking the part might be bad we replaced it again with no luck. Based on the information from other repair stories with similar problems we tried the Defrost Assy, Adpative. We hadn't put all the covering parts back so replacing this part was relatively easy. At first we didn't think this part fixed the problem either, but after a few days of monitoring the temps in the refrigerator & freezer it seems to have corrected the problem. It has been several weeks and the temps are holding.
The most difficult part of the repair is removing the cover plate to gain access to the parts. There are clips that have to be released, and thanks to another repair story we were able to get that done. Also, we accessed the data on our refrigerator from this site (from the parts lists and obtained the drawings) so we were able to identify each part. Otherwise the repairs were removing one part and replacing it with the new parts (screws and connectors).
Since this site (unlike some of the others) had listed the Defrost Assy with additional model information we ordered our part from PartSelect as we didn't want to receive a part that wouldn't fit. The part was perfect and we have a working refrigerator FINALLY!
