removal of the old valve to identify the problem took the most time. Once the new valve came it it was easy. NOTE: the old one had threaded connectors, and the new one is press/fit so the ends of the tubing need to be cut. The color coding and size matching are great.

The defrost thermostat kit is located in the freezer side of the refrigertor. I turned off the electrical breaker for the refrigerator. I began the project by removing all the frozen food on the lower half of the freezer. I removed the racks and 3 rails on both sides using a cordless drill with a 1/4" socket and located panel. The panel had 4 1/4" screws holding it to the back of the freezer. I removed all screws and the panel came out easy. I located the defrost thermostat and with some wire cutters, I cut the wires. I connected the the new defrost thermostat with wire connectors and reattached it to the copper tube I removed it from. I put the panel back on along with the side rails and racks.. This project was very easy.

I first determined the problem. I found PartSelect.com through online search. I ordered the part online Sunday morning. Part arrived Tuesday afternoon(Christmas eve) and I installed it that night! Now I am a gal mind you, but I am pretty handy. I pulled out the fridge, unplugged it and removed the back panel, easy. Then I used a heat gun on low the defrost the 'defroster' which had REALLY iced up bad. It had iced up so much,in fact, it had disconnected the evaporator fan connection. I clipped the wires. Stripped the ends, slid on the shrink tubing supplied, connected the wires with the crimp connectors and heated the shrink tube. I also put another piece of shrink tube on the fan connector so it would be more secure. Put the panel back on, plugged it back in and started working like a champ!! I am so proud of myself and likely saved at least $250.00 on a service call! Total cost for this repair, $22.00!! :D
