  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

I couldn't figure out if the front plate would come off so getting access to the screw to unscrew it was problematic at first. I don't have whatever tool you need to get at that angle so I used an Allen wrench with a 6.5 mm socket to unscrew the screw and replace the clip. After figuring that combination out it went really fast.

Ice bin was broken where the ice is pushed out the front.

Very simple. Using only a screw driver removed all the screws and removed the front part of the ice bin. Then I removed the screw auger that pushes the ice out and reassembled every thing to the new ice bin.

Temperature on refrigerator side was unstable. I was adjusting the thermostate control (center knob) frequently.

  • Customer: L from Friendswood TX
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

I followed the instructions shown in the on-line video for replacing the thermostate control. I had difficulty freeing the capilary tube from around the mechanical lever that controls the freezer side vent opening. I had to remove a screw that held the vent lever in place. This is a delicate activity. I was not happy with the way the on-line video delt with this particular issue. Otherwise, the video was right on and straight forward. The problem is fixed.

Refrigerator would quit, then after I played with the thermostat it would work for a time.

After watching the convenient movie, the replacment of the Thermostat was very simple and easy. i woul strongly advise you to take a picture of the wires before disconecting so, you will be sure to to reconetc it again.The replacment was a success and the refrigerator has been working since them

freezer was not consistent in keeping cold enough to keep itiems from defrosting. Fridge was not keeping up to temp. Noticed compressor would try to cycle but would cut out. Gave a Fonzerelli tap "ehhh" to the temp control and controls would kick on and work for short periods.

We bought the fridge used and immediately see why it was being sold. But ordered a new thermostat and with Part Select's instructional video was able to replace the thermostat. I should mention it was my first attempt making any repairs to a refrigerator. It was fairly straightforward project.

Fridge kept turning off.

Watched the video, followed the instructions, took my time and paid attention to what came off where, and viola. Not quite as easy as the guy in the video, but then it was my first time! Bottom line is: it worked. Refrigerator/freezer now maintains temperature exactly as expected, and I saved hundreds. Thank you!

Fridge would stop cooling, get way over temperature. I noticed it would start up again if I tapped near the thermostat. It would run for a while then stop again. Replaced the thermostat exactly as shown in video. Fridge works fine now.
