When it was diagnosed as a faulty defrost thermostat, I went online to Parts Select and found the part which was very reasonably priced ,(compared to the price quoted to me by the repair person). So I proceeded to remove the back of the freezer compartment removed the bad t stat rewired the new stat replaced the covers and we are back in business. The fridge now works as good as new. At about 10% of the quoted price from the repair service.
