LANCE From AURORA, CO

Feb 24, 2013

Using your online troubleshooter, it was probably the defrost timer and/or the defrost thermostat.Both cheap so I ordered both. The online repair videos showed how to replace those parts. Replaced the timer first with no problems. Removed the panel at the freezer back an saw a streak of black smoke on the white panel wall above the thermostat.Good chance this was the failure point.Video also showed how to replace this unit without any problem. Set the temperature control and let the frig run over night.Problem solved!Frig at 38d and freezer at 0d.
