Refrigerator would not cool, needed to replace Compressor start device

  • Customer: Agonna from Snellville GA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
The most difficult part was after I removed the old Start Device kit, the electrical wire clamp had to be adjusted so that it would fit back on the new compressor start device. Also the new one did not look like the old one so it took a few minutes to read the instructions and set it back up correctly but once in place it worked like a charm.

Temperature on refrigerator side was unstable. I was adjusting the thermostate control (center knob) frequently.

  • Customer: L from Friendswood TX
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers

I followed the instructions shown in the on-line video for replacing the thermostate control. I had difficulty freeing the capilary tube from around the mechanical lever that controls the freezer side vent opening. I had to remove a screw that held the vent lever in place. This is a delicate activity. I was not happy with the way the on-line video delt with this particular issue. Otherwise, the video was right on and straight forward. The problem is fixed.

Refrigerator door not closing on it's own

  • Customer: Kurt from Terre Haute IN
  • Difficulty: Really easy

Lower door closing cam was completely worn down so door wouldn't close on it's own. Ordered parts which arrived in a couple of days. After watching installation video on this website the job looked pretty easy. Needed socket wrench to loosen nuts at top, they were really tight. Removed door. Replaced both the cam on the bottom of door and the cam on the main unit, put door back on making sure it was straight and lined up properly. Retightened top nuts securely. Voila, problem fixed in only about 15 minutes or so.

Refrigerator would quit, then after I played with the thermostat it would work for a time.

Refrigerator door wouldn't stay closed

If you are having this problem, read this. My refrigerator door would not stay closed. This was over a year and a half time period. I thought it was something complicated and told my wife to call a repairman. Thank goodness she does what she does best - not listening to me! I finally had enough and went online and googled my problem and found PartsSelect. PartSelect had a repair video showing how to fix the problem. If you are like me, I'm very cautious about purchasing from a website in which I'm not familiar. PartsSelect is a reputable site (I promise I do not work for them). My refrigerator is over 8 years old and they had the part I needed, a lower door cam, along with a video on how to install the part. This honestly took about 5-10 minutes to do and I did it without any help. I was so aggravated at myself for waiting so long at doing this!! I actually ordered 2 of these parts, just for the next time. You can do this.

freezer was not consistent in keeping cold enough to keep itiems from defrosting. Fridge was not keeping up to temp. Noticed compressor would try to cycle but would cut out. Gave a Fonzerelli tap "ehhh" to the temp control and controls would kick on and work for short periods.

Remove inside door trim plate. Then removed three screws that held in the light assembly. The only difficult thing was reconnecting the temperature adjustment rod. After replacing this rod you must slide the temperature control slide to midway and this hold the rod in place while reinstalling the light assembly. If I were to do it again it would probably take me half as long.

Only the compressor fan was running with no cold air, the compressor wouldn't kick on. I pulled the start relay and the disc inside was in pieces ( rattled when you shook it). I ordered the new one and installed it. The compressor started running right away and cold air was delivered to the freezer.

Followed instructions on this website. Only difference I placed a couple blocks under the door to keep it from dropping & removed both cams at the same time. No need to remove the door from the unit.
