Turn off power to the frig. Remove the shelves and back brackets from the freezer, then with a 1/4" nut driver remove the nuts holding the rear metal panel in place. Once removed the defrost thermostat is right in front of you. You will have to clip the wires from the old t-stat because they are in a harness. Once clipped, strip the wires back, wire in the new t-stat, add wire nuts and put it all back together. Very easy job to do, works great. Thanks Parts Select, Mike.

Followed recommendations from others but went with most likely by percentage = Defrost Timer Kit. Did not solve issue. Then went with Bi-Metal Thermostat and that did not fix the problem. Tested the thermostat as recommended on line and old part was bad, new part OK. Then I saw on line that I should have listened for Fan operation. I checked and found the fan Motor to be defective. Replaced the motor and Refrigerator worked fine. Both the Motor and Bi-Metal Thermostat were required. Should have checked fan operation first.

Hi, this was an easy repair job. And, after I was done I felt like McGyver. It took me about 1 hour. The hardest part was getting ice maker's power source disconnected. That was tricky; you have to remove the housing that covers the power connector.

The hexagonal shaft had been worn down so that the edges no longer could be gripped by the teeth on the ice dispenser bucket. Remove the the two screws underneath the bucket. Use pliers (if needed) to pull out ht sold shaft. Slide in the new shaft, and twist until it drops into place. Replace the two screws and you're all set!

Refrigerator stopped working

The refrigerator stopped working and temperatures were rising. After inspection, noticed that the compressor is not running and condenser fan not running. I ordered the inverter box and replaced the old one. Compressor started to run but condenser fan still not running. Compressor was getting hot while freezer temperature reduced to some degree. Cleaned condenser with compressed air, connected condenser fan directly to 110VAC. Refrigerator runs normally. Burning of the inverter box may be preventable. We did notice that the freezer portion of the door frame getting hot for over 3 months. This is an indication that the condenser does not provide sufficient heat dissipation. This in turn made the compressor hot and melted away some components in the inverter box which is located next to the compressor. A thorough cleaning of the condenser made the freezer door frame stay slightly warm but not hot. This condition keeps the compressor running at normal temperature. I still need the main controller which is discontinued to automatically control the condenser fan. So far the fan runs all the time and uses a bit more electricity than necessary.

I did not have voltmeter to test for problem. Internet sites suggested the most common problem is the circuit boards--a sender and a receiver which detect when the ice bucket is full. I could only buy as a pair (about $94). I removed two screws of cover of receiving unit, detached the coupler, replaced the circuit board. Icemaker now works. The sender was obviously still good.

I was ready to spend the $$$ on a repair person when my wife (smart woman) suggested I go on line to see if we can fix it ourselves. I (luckly) found your company and your website made it easy to find the right part plus as an extra bonus you had a video that showed how to switch out both control boards. To top it off, the package came so fast ( the next day - even with standard shipping ) I did not think it was the parts. 10 or so minutes with a Phillips screwdriver and we were back in business. THANK YOU ! ! ! !
