First I tried to remove the plastic cowling surrounding the evaporator fan, but I just couldn't get all of the fasteners to let go. So, I removed all of the screws that held in the back of the freezer compartment. Once the back was loose, I was able to tilt it forward and then remove the fan cowling. The fan motor was then easy to remove and replace. (I verified that the motor was the problem by checking the voltage in the blue and white wires that feed the motor - the voltage was at zero when the refrigerator temperature switch was set to zero, but went to 120V when I moved the switch above the zero position.) I then replaced the back of the freezer compartment and the refrigerator is cold as it ever was.

Fridge was cold but not cold enough. Stuff in the front was too warm.

I was told to order the run capacitor and the technician thought it would repair the refrigerator; but it did not. The appliance technician had to take the run capacitor off and install what he called a "hard start" and the refrigerator is operating right now.

My frig was cycling between upper 30's to 60 degrees, the freezer would make ice one day then be melting the next. I started by replacing the CONDENSER FAN MOTOR, relatively easy, unplug the motor, ratchet off the three supporting screws, splice the wires together, attach the ground wire and reinstall. That didn't seem to fix my problem.

I then ordered the Defrost Thermostat and Defrost Timer, based on past advice these were frequently replaced parts. Both installs were easy, the DEFROST TIMER was installed first, one screw holds the housing in the fridge, just unplug and unclip and install the new one. Very easy. This didn't seem to correct the problem overnight. I then installed the DEFROST THERMOSTAT, which was a couple of screws in the back of the freezer and uncip and install the new one. Very easy. This seemed to help the freezer maintain temperature, but the frig was still cycling up and down in temp on a daily basis and I had the temp knob all the way to 7 when it would normally work at 4.

I ordered the TEMPERATURE CONTROL ASSEMBLY. Easy to install, in the same housing as the Defrost timer, unhook some wires, reinstall and run the coiled part toward the back of the housing. This fixed the problem and has maintained my temp in the mid to lower 40's at the setting of 4.

I ordered a freezer shelf to add a shelf. Tried to install when arrived only to discover that the 2 brackets were needed and I didn't know. Once I ordered the brackets it was a breeze to set it up . Nice to have things so I can actually see the items not being pilled on top of each other. Hopefully will not lose food.

Refigerator/freezer was not cooling

  • Customer: Barry from Westlake Village CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 2 of 4 people found this instruction helpful
I first removed the freezer shelf, then the back internal freezer wall by removing the 4 screws with my nut driver. Then removed the fan cover, by releasing the clips (6). Then unscrewed the fan mounting brackets (same nut driver), then released the fan. The connector on the replacement fan was different to the original, so I cut both connectors off, and reattached the 2 wires with wire nuts.
I then reassembled everything, and all is well. The refrigerator was successfully repaired
