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 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.

Exactly as shown in the video; had a bit of trouble with the wiring harness, but all else went smoothly. If it were not for the explicit video installation instruction, it could not have been done by a do-it-yourself guy with tools. I had ice again in 3 hours! PartSelect is the absolute best when it comes to diagnosing, ordering and installing the part(s).

Opened freezer section of refergerator and taped Ice Maker cover door in the open position to remove emitter and receiver boards. Unscrewed the phillips head screws that secure the emitter board housing to the refrigerator side wall. Turned off power to the refrigerator and unpluged the emitter, removed the 2 screws that hold the emitter board against the housing and removed it, then I installed the new emitter board in the housing by screwing it in place. Repeated same process for removal and replacement of the receiver board. The whole process took me about 10 minuets.

It was so simple, one screw to take the ice maker out and four screws for the motor. I ordered the motor because in your web site it suggested that 46% of the times its the motor the problem, I guess you could now say 47%. Got the part within 3 days. It was a pleasure doing business with your company. I recommended highly to everyone. Your web site was a lot of help.

I tried to remove the old light switch using a putty knife and a hammer. It was hard to compress the plastic tabs to pull it back through the hole, but all of a sudden, the lights came on. I guess banging on the switch freed-up the contacts. The new switch is now a spare part in case I need it.

No prior experience in appliance repair. The majority of time was used in researching the problem and how to fix it. The Parts-Select website and the comments of prior customers made it easy to diagnose and repair. Unplugged the unit, popped of the ice maker cover to get it out of the way, unscrewed the plate covers for the emitter and receiver, changed them out, replaced the covers, replaced ice maker cover, plugged in. Moved on to the next problem.
