refridge never cooled good,replaced termostat and circuit board, works great probably over kill but better than waiting on parts. Very easy job, drop over head control panel , remove thermo very carefully after unhooking linkage to freezer vent to fridge, be carefull not to bend linkage, you will also have to remove 2 covers that shield thermo conduit for thermo that go to back of fridge. Board is very easily replaced when sitting on table but 1 plug gave me problems trying to release the plug, {hint} move side to side instead of moving up and down . The themo stat sencing tube install is kind of trickie too , just straighten the tube totally before trying to remove or reinstall the new sencing tube, you can form it during restlall in the fridge . It was good to see that fridge cooling back down to 34 degrees on less than mid setting. YAHOOOOOO
