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, 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.

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

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.

Defrosted freezer only. . . . Unplugged fridge. Took hairdryer and made sure all access water was turned off to fridge; then kept heat on hose lines behind metal panel for 10 minutes. Saved myself 382. 00 Repair bill and within an hour had the ice machine banging out the ice. When going on vacation, make sure ice maker is turned off and even if it doesn't work when you get back, defrost freezer before calling help! Saves sooo much money and the new fridge I was told I'd have to purchase if it happened again. Don't think so!!!!!!

Lower Door Closing Cams Worn down

Openned both doors and removed lower grille. Closed doors and placed a piece of wood underneath door. The piece of wood slightly taller so that it supports and lifts the door while I worked. Working at the bottom of the door removed both upper and lower plastic cams and replaced with new ones. Be sure to tighten the single screw that holds down the plastic cam; if you leave them loose they will split/crack because they will move as you operate the door.
