The Sears man came out and told me it was the thermostat that needed to be replaced and it would cost $321 plus tax. I went on youtube and watched the Partselect video several times and decided to order the part after seeing how easy it was to install. Total cost $65. I put the laptop on the counter and watched it as I installed it. It helped that I could go back and watch a certain part if there was a problem. But I had no problems and installed it in 20 minutes. Very, very simple to do. Of course I had to pay $75 to the Sears man but I saved about $200 . Thanks Partselect.

The instructions on line suggested I buy a lower door closing cam and a thimble top which I did. When I went to install I noticed that the door hinge with cam was also warn down. I had to again place an order and again remove the door to install. I would suggest those having this problem that they look at the hinge with cam also before ordering.

Removed the refrigerator door (after taking everything out of the shelves). Took the old Lower Door Closing Cam off (it was totally worn down), installed the new one, rehung the door. Rehanging the door took a couple of tries to get it properly aligned. Very easy fix, We thought we had to replace the refrigerator since it is 14 years old, but this fixed the problem completely!

1. Unplug the electric plug. 2 Either be in a well lighted place or get a flashlite. 3. Remove all food from top shelf. 4. Remove the knobs from both controls by pulling on them or use pliers to grab the center and pull. 5. Use the thin bladed knife and gently slip the knife under the thin plastic panel that covers the two controls and pop it off. 6.Go in back of the control panel and remove the two hex headed screws that holds the panel onto the roof of the refrigerator.7. Locate the right hand control, and use a philips screw driver to remove two philips screws that hold the temperature control body in place. and remove the wires from the terminals by pulling them with a long nose pliers.8. Locate the white panels that cover the thermostat sensor and remove the screws holding them onto the frig body. slip the long thin tube out of the plastic piece it is formed to fit.9.Draw on paper the shape and measure the deminsions,of the long thin tube. Straighten out the tube and remove the plastic covering it. Now slip that tubing over the new piece.10. Form the tubing into the odd shaped holder and gently place all of the new asssembly against the frig wall and cover with the two white panels that you removed to get to the long sensor tube. 11. Reassemble the controls in the same order you took it apart. Plug the frig back in to the electricity and set the control on 5 and it should run. Watch for a period to hear the unit cycle on and off. You are a genius and have saved at least 150 dollars.

un-plug the power cord. remove both control knobs. pry off the cover. remove 1 screw on the right and left with the nut driver. remove two screws in back with the nut driver. remove the screw holding thermostat in place, loosen screw holding the left side of the l plate. lift thermostat up and remove two nut driver screws. remove the temperature sensing line from holding device. Remove cover down the side of refrigerator and the cover over the sensor (in back corner) carefully remove the sensor line. Carefully bend the sensor tube into the shape of the removed part(do not kink)install the new part in the reverse order of removing.. Use flat blade screw driver to press sensor line into the snaps. This was one of the easiest repairs I have ever completed.
