I possibly could have done the entire repair with the last part used but who knows...Anyways the fridge was not getting cold and the passage that blows cold air from the freezer was clogging with ice as was the cold air intake spot at the bottom of the freezer coils...this problem behan 3 months ago...I replaced the thermostat first...didnt work...second, a new burner element....also did not work and finally what worked was a new control board at the back of the fridge...also the lights in the fridge went out 3 years ago and now they are back on after the new board was installed...hope this saves someone else some time and frustration.
