The evaporator gan motor would work sometimes, but not always, so it took a while to be sure this was the problem. First ruled out thermostat and defrost timer. Also observed build up of ice on coils, so I knew compressor was working. Once I isolated problem to evaporator fan ( by observing stuck once, and seeing how it didn't spin freely) replacement was easy. In fact, since we were able to keep the unit running by watching the old fan and ensuring it was working while waiting for the new one to arrive, I was able to swap them out, plug unit back in and start it up before the ice in the bin even had time to melt! This repair saved me hundreds in repairs, and even more if I had to buy a new fridge, because the new units are too tall for my kitchen space.

First I removed the top bracket cover screw with a 5/16" nut driver. placing it aside, I removed the three screws holding the top door hinge off using a 5/16" socket on a 1/4 drive to free the screws , then continued to remove them with the nut driver. placing them aside on top of the refrigerator. Then I lifted the door up and off the lower hinge and laid the door down on my kitchen counter. I removed the lower hinge piece from the lower bracket still on the fridge with a 5/16" nut driver and installed the new piece in its place and also applied a few dots of Vaseline on the lower hinge piece, I then removed the screw and lower bracket from the door and installed the new one and also applied some Vaseline on this piece also. I also took a rag that had been dipped in olive oil and rubbed the entire gasket surround the door to lubricate the gasket to keep it soft, then I reinstalled the door back onto its lower bracket, and then lined door back up correctly and reinstalled the top mounting bracket and screws then the cover, and then tested door. Door opens now with no noise and opens easier also.

Be gentle when installing new plastic crisper drawer. If possible, read install instructions in Refrigerator Owner Booklet. Put new crisper drawer in position and gently push in until you are stopped by encountering the "stops" in side-support rails that are attached permanently to walls of refrigerator. Per Owner Booklet, lift new crisper drawer up slightly to pass over the "stops", then let the crisper drawer settle back down and push it in the rest of the way. Removal is reverse procedure. Be gentle!

Door wouldn't automatically close tight

If you have to push your door to close it and it doesn't close on its own, this is your fix. These door cams are two plastic pieces on the bottom hinge, one on the door and one on the bracket that goes to the body, that engage like a gear with only a couple of teeth. They are supposed to have raised teeth that engage to ride the door to a closed position when it is nearly closed. They are plastic and are made to wear down. To change, empty the door, then at the top of the door (i.e., looking down from above) unscrew two bolts that go to the hinge. The door then lifts off the bottom bracket. Put the door on a soft surface and unscrew the bolt that holds this cam. You can re-use the bolt. There is another cam bolted to the bracket that stays attached to the fridge. Change both cams at the same time. Reverse the process to re-install the door. Your door will close like new for under $10, in maybe 15-30 minutes.

Unplugged the refrigerator then removed two vertical screws on the very back back of the control panel (the ones with the washers). Do not remove the four other vertical screws in the panel. The front plastic plate on control panel snaps off and there are two horizontal screws under the plate. Remove them and the control panel will drop down allowing access to the light switch. Unplug the two wires (one black and one white) from the old switch. Discard the old switch, snap the new one into place and reconnect the two wires. Snap the front plastic plate back into place, plug in the refrigerator and you are done! Problem solved with a new $16.00 switch and saved at least $75.00 or more from an appliance repair call. Thanks Part Select!
