Bi-Metal Defrost Thermostat

If you have ice building up in your freezer, or if your freezer is getting too warm during the defrost cycle you may need to replace the bi-metal defrost thermostat. The function of the defrost bi-metal thermostat is to clip onto the evaporator and protect your evaporator from overheating during the defrost cycle. If your refrigerator does not defrost properly you can test both the thermostat and the heater to figure out which part is at fault. For this repair, you will need a Phillips screwdriver, a 1/4 inch nut driver, a flat blade screwdriver, a pair of wire strippers, a roll of electrical tape, and a few butt splice connectors.

Light Rocker Switch

This light rocker light switch is used in a number of household appliances. It is most often found in refrigerators and freezers. This is a simple mechanism that helps turn the light in your appliance on and off. If the door of your appliance is open the light should be on, and if the door is closed the light should be off. Your appliance door is opened and closed frequently, meaning the mechanism may wear out over time. It is not uncommon that this part will need to be replaced. You may need a putty knife to release the mounting tab and remove the faulty rocker switch. To install the new one, simply attach the wires and snap it into place in the liner of your refrigerator or freezer.

If you are experiencing symptoms such as the fridge making loud noises (generally stemming from the freezer compartment), or the fridge/freezer feeling warm in temperature, this may indicate a need to replace your evaporator fan motor. This part pulls air into the evaporator coils and then disperses the air in a continuous motion throughout the refrigerator and freezer.

Light Socket Kit

The light socket in your refrigerator houses the light bulb and connects it to the power source. If your refrigerator light is not coming on when you open the door, you may need to replace the light socket. Before you replace the light socket, be sure that your light bulb is in working condition, as this may solve the same problem. This light socket kit comes with 2 wire connectors, a light shield, and the new socket. The wire connectors that come with this kit are included so your new socket can replace a variety of old ones. If this light socket is different than your original, you will need to use the connectors to make it fit your refrigerator. Be sure to follow the instructions provided, so this part will fit your refrigerator properly.
