I used a knife blade to slip under the edge of old switch to pray it out of the hole it was inserted into, switched the wires and replaced the new switch into the same hole. It took about five minutes!

Pried out the old switch with small screwdriver, popped in the new one and tah-dah!! ..the light came on. While I was at it, I cleaned out the freezer :). I cannot begin to imagine what a repairman would have charged for this.

Unplugged appliance. Using a small putty knife I moved the switch out far enough to grab it with pliers. Moved wiring to new switch and pushed into place after testing.

Did not self-defrost

  • Customer: Dan from Wellesley MA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

Remove freezer door: two pan head machine screws on sides of track, lift and pull. Remove icemaker: electrical connector with latches, three sheet metal screws with 5/16 hex heads, easiest to get top two first. Remove bezel vent from back panel: 3 latches, one lower center other two upper sides. These release with a 3/16 screwdriver. Start with the center one. Remove back panel: 4 sheet metal screws in corners, bow outward to clear retainer and pull out. May have to defrost coil and fins: remove any loose frost gently with plastic scraper, warm with hot air gun on low setting, keeping it moving and a foot or so away from refrigerator parts. Mop up water. Diagnosis: set multimeter to read resistance. Unplug orange wire connected to thermostat. One probe on orange wire, one probe on brown wire, where it enters the multi-connector. Unclip thermostat and warm in your hand. Should be open circuit. Bury thermostat in a handful of frost to cool down. Should be closed circuit. I had about 6 M Ohms, so decided problem was probably thermostat. Also checked heater, which had 30 Ohm resistance, which is correct. Reassembled, ordered part. Disassembled. Unclipped old thermostat and cut off wires. Kit comes with end cap electrical crimps. I used butt splice crimps instead, with a bit of heat shrink tubing over the ends to keep water out. Unplugging orange wire made this a bit easier. Clipped thermostat back onto coil. Reassembly: snap in back panel, re-attach screws. Make sure icemaker hose and connector pass through respective holes, and connector is latched in place. Watch out for sharp edges. Re-install bezel grille; alignment is a bit finicky. Re-install icemaker. Re-install door and baskets. Store food. Done.

Evaporator coils frozen solid / refrigerator not cooling

  • Customer: Richard from Cascade CO
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Required about 20 minutes with hair dryer to melt ice from coils. Ohmed out heater at 30 ohms. Noted (as others have) that defrost thermostat was bulged out on one end. Reassembled and ordered replacement thermostat. Received part in three days. Kit contained all parts required for replacement - wires were color coded for easy replacement. Cut both brown and orange wires and used supplied crimp connectors to splice in new thermostat (will need crimpers). Reassembled unit. Actual time to replace part was about 15 minutes. Plastic grill has indications on both sides where to insert a screwdriver to release tabs holding it in place (there is also a tab in the center which is not marked).

Replaced primary water valve. Once I ordered the part from Part Select, it arrived the next day. The repair consisted of removing the small panel where the feed lines enter the back of the refrigerator then removing the old valve. It is a small area, so access to the feed lines and electrical wires were a little difficult. Also removing the valve from this space also proved to be a challenge. The installation was very easy needing only attaching the water lines and electrical plus to the new unit. The water pressure is now great. I wish I had done this a long time ago.

Shut off water supply. filter is located in the upper right hand corner of the refrigerator on the inside. open the drop-down door. by hand pull the filter downward. then twist it to the left one quarter turn. it should pull out. I replaced it with a filter bypass plug. you can purchase a high quality filter to replace.it don't buy cheap filter.I made that mistake! hope this helps good luck!

unplug power! Remove the screws from lower panel on back of refrigerator. Lift wire mount out of back panel. Capacitor is mounted directly to the relay and overload switch located on the left side of the compressor. Remove the spring clip holding the capacitor in place and pull the old capacitor out. Plug in new capacitor and replace spring clip. Use vacuum to remove dust from drip pan and wipe fan blades clean. Replace wire into slot on back panel and replace screws. Remove front coil cover below freezer door. vacuum dust off coils and replace cover. Plug refrigerator in and enjoy cold beverages. Relay and overload kit were not required for this repair.

Removed the back panel (6 or seven screws), removed the relay with the capacitor from the compressor (by hand), removed the connector from the relay (with help from a flat head screwdriver), installed the new relay with the new capacitor, closed the back panel. Piece of cake and saved the $450 to $500 estimate to replace the compressor...
