Frost buildup in Freezer, Fridge too warm. Fan running too long

  • Customer: Bjorn from Westlake Village CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

According to PartSelect website, the probably cause was Temperature Sensor or Defrost Thermostat. I watched the replacement videos. . .. very nice and seemed easy. Ordered the parts and got within 3 days (nice!). I followed the procedure on the video for disassembly, I used a hair dryer to melt the ice buildup on coils and then cut the old Sensor and Thermostat out of the wire harness and, instead of using crimper to seal my new splices, I soldered them instead. I used shrink wrap sleeves, then wrapped in electrical tape for permanent insulation. My Fridge now functions like new again.Thanks Partselect! You are the best!

Unplug the refrigerator and remove frozen food, shelving, light and back panel inside the freezer section to expose the cooling coils. The coils were completely iced over. Using a wet dry vacuum to discharge the air toward the coils quickly melted the ice. The trouble shooting section on your website described my problem and I bought both items which were the most common problem. Using the video(s) e-mailed to me when purchasing the parts provided great information regarding details for the repair. After replacing both parts the refrigerator is working great having spent just under $25.00.

Followed the video instructions with the help of a young man who worked on trailer hitches before and knew how to splice wires.Beware of splicing the wrong fan motor back into the assembly....that happened here and we had to start the splicing all over again with the correct fan motor.

I followed the video provided by PartSelect, very helpful. I had to cut and splice 4 wires. The repair was successful. The replacement part was an exact duplicate of the original. I still notice the same sound but one tenth the volume. I hope the problem does not return. Many thanks to PartSelect for information to identify the problem and prompt shipping of the repair part.

i followed a video that was on your site, the video couldn't have been easier to follow it was step by step and very easy to follow, i replaced the evaporator fan motor and everything is working fine, i did notice that the evaporator coil was frozen pretty bad when i removed the back freezer panel i am going to check it again in a couple of weeks to make sure i don't have a defrosting problem as of now everything is fine i am hoping it was just the bad fan motor causing the coil to freeze up because of no air movement over the coil

Ironically I did this today, as this email request came up asking how it went. I'm not a repairman, I'm a software engineer, and I can't thank this site enough for the step by step videos. With the video to help, this was a breeze, I was nervous as I had to empty all my freezer out onto the living room floor. Once that was done the repair took about 30 minutes. Thank you partselect!!!!! My second time doing business here, and I'll be coming back (well, if something breaks, so let's hope I don't have to).

UNit was not cooling properly. Only the bottom side of the freezer was cold, and the same on the other side, just the bottom.

After watching some videos on U tube on how to check the mother board, I did some checking and found out that all the voltages and resistances were OK, so I ordered the fan, the thermistor and a temperature sensor.I got the parts really quick, just a couple of days.After I got the parts I watched the videos suggested in the parts select web page, and I was able to install everything without problems.Now my fridge is working fine, with excellent cooling.

Freezer was not keeping food frozen

  • Customer: lee from Frederick MD
  • Difficulty: Easy

The problem began when freezer thawed and could not keep food frozen. Initially, I thought the issue was the defrost heater (because I had seen similar symptoms previously and resolved the issue with a new defrost heater)and I replaced that part with a spare that I had puchased previously. The issue was still unresolved and I noticed the evaporator fan was not running in the freezer because it would not turn on when I closed the door. I checked to make sure I could hear the compressor working (and it was)and concluded that the evaporator fan motor was not running. I ordered the part and found a YouTube DIY video on how to replace it. While I was at work, my fiancee took it upon herself to watch the installation video and install the new evaporator fan motor and all is well.
