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.

We suspected the thermostat assembly was the problem. We reviewed the video provided by PartSelect and accessed the thermostat assembly. To ensure the thermostat assembly was likely the culprit, we used a multimeter to test it. We ordered the assembly from PartSelect and were pleasantly surprised at the speedy delivery. Using the same video, we replaced the assembly and put the refrigerator back together. Thank you so much for saving us money we didn't have for the repairman. We will be ordering again soon to repair a leaky waterline and ice maker.

Simply follow the video instructions. Involves the removal of nine screws. to remove the old plastic sleeve cut the tube near the old thermostat and it slides of easily. Apply dish or hand washing soup to the new tube when putting the plastic sleeve onto the new probe. The hardest part is getting the end of the probe coiled to the right shape. Hey,` if I can do it with a broken collar bone, anybody should be able to do it.

Very simple repair. Followed the video instructions. Simply removed a few screws and nuthead screws. Removed the cover plates. Removed the old thermostat switch. Removed the plastics tubing over the temp sensor probe. Put the plastic tubing on the new sensor probe, ( rubbing a slight amount of vegetable oil on the probe to allow the tube to slide on easier,). Reinstalled the temp probe. Reinstalled the new switch. Connected the wires to the switch. Reinstalled the cover plates and screws. And the job was complete. Almost took me longer to write this out, than it did to complete the project. Hey, it was an easy fix.
