Changed the Motor Assembly. Wasn't the problem. If I had followed your trouble chart a little farther I would have found out it was the circuit boards. All is well and I might add that yor guide with the parts and video are priceless. Very Happy. Lowell Onstad

Followed recommendations from others but went with most likely by percentage = Defrost Timer Kit. Did not solve issue. Then went with Bi-Metal Thermostat and that did not fix the problem. Tested the thermostat as recommended on line and old part was bad, new part OK. Then I saw on line that I should have listened for Fan operation. I checked and found the fan Motor to be defective. Replaced the motor and Refrigerator worked fine. Both the Motor and Bi-Metal Thermostat were required. Should have checked fan operation first.

Unplugged it for a day listened to the ice melting on the inside and plug it in again. Decreased the temperature settings and it now seems to work fine. I will save the part in case I ever need it in the future.

Turn off power to the frig. Remove the shelves and back brackets from the freezer, then with a 1/4" nut driver remove the nuts holding the rear metal panel in place. Once removed the defrost thermostat is right in front of you. You will have to clip the wires from the old t-stat because they are in a harness. Once clipped, strip the wires back, wire in the new t-stat, add wire nuts and put it all back together. Very easy job to do, works great. Thanks Parts Select, Mike.

Hi, this was an easy repair job. And, after I was done I felt like McGyver. It took me about 1 hour. The hardest part was getting ice maker's power source disconnected. That was tricky; you have to remove the housing that covers the power connector.
