Freezer kept freezing over so the fridge wouldn't get cold air. Easy fix. Pulled all the shelves out first. Then took out the screws on the back wall of freezer. Removed the bottom panel only to expose the thermostat. Cut the wires and spliced them together to the color coded wires on the new one I purchased. My 4 year old could have done this. They supplied the wire nuts too!! Clipped it back on tied all the wires back together with zip tie and put the covers, screws and shelves back in. Works perfect. Was quoted $200 to do this job. Wish they were all this easy. Thanks PartSelect!!
