This is an easy fix, simply remove and replace. What I was impressed with is that a how to video was provided along with my part. I wish all manufactures would offer this, the video was easy to understand and you had a good view of the operation. Thanks, a job well done.

At first I went to a local part supplier and they didn't have it in stock but could order it for me for $55.00 plus $10.00 to ship it. I told them I would have to think about it. I went home and got on the computer and found your web site and was I shocked when I saw the same part listed for $6.98 and $7.00 to ship it. You guys saved me $50.00. The part arrived in two day and took 5 min. to install. I now have light in my refrigerator. Thank you.

I confirmed the problem was in fact the relay/capacitor by the burned smell and discoloring of the part. Other than a wire splice, it was simply swap part for part. The run cap was even easier as well as the defroster to change. The defrost t-stat took longer only because I needed to clean out the freezer in order to gain access. After that it is just plug-in and snap on. I plugged the fridge back in and checked it periodically for temp change.....bingo! Oh, this is a good time to clean your unit out as well!

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.

Received the part two days after ordering. Instructions were included. Removed the console by removing one screw and pulling it toward me. Removed the knob from the temp control and disconnected the wires (3 slide terminals). Removed the old temp control and replaced it with the new one, connecting and routing the wires and sensor tubing so they wouldn't get pinched. Replaced the knob, console and the screw. Easy job. Tested with an infra-red thermometer and adjusted the knob accordingly 3 or 4 times to get ~ 10 degrees in the freezer and ~ 40 degrees in the lower cabinet.
