Just replaced the thermostat and is working perfectly. I would have to tap cooler knob and it would kick on. when it ran it ran well. So i knew it had to be electrical.Put in new thermostat and is working great!

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!

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.

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

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.

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.

Watched the video link from the part order and the step by step instructions were as easy as the repair man showed. This is an easy do it yourself job that will fix the problem I describe with the unit. Ahhh a working freezer making and keeping ice once again.

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

Instead of trouble shooting what part was bad, just replaced the whole unit. Probably cheaper in the long run and the whole process took less than 15 minutes. Pulled the old icemaker out, plugged in the new one and back in business.

I was able to verify that the water inlet valve was ok based on shorting the test points as described in the online ice maker troubleshooting guide. I then ordered the replacement ice maker and received it within 3 days. The repairs went very smooth, remove 3 screws, unplug connector, transfer shutoff wire to new unit, connect power, replace 3 screws. Done. Ice bucket was full within 24 hours.
