If your fridge doesn't turn on, then try tapping near the temperature knob. If it magically turns on then you would need to replace the thermostat assembly. Once you watch the video instruction, you will get an idea of how to replace this. It was very easy if you have all the right tools. I used a 1/4 socket with 1/4 inch drive ratchet, Philips head bit screwdriver, and needle nose pliers. I also used a flat head screw driver to gently pry the front panel off. I hope this helps those that were frustrated in fixing the fridge.
