The is my 'refreshment' cooler and sits in our garage. Hotter than heck in the summer so the things runs a lot. Started making a little growling noise. Had to partially disassemble the back panel to get to the fan. Touched the exposed shaft for a second and the sound stopped. OK, it's the fan. Went on line, used the (really great) exploded diagram to figure out what I needed. A couple days later the parts show up. Installed the new fan blade and retainer Removed the old motor (couple of mounting screws), connected the new motor (a plug in) and mounted the new motor making sure the grommet on the front and back were engaged. Turned the unit on and everything worked. Reinstalled the foam channel, the back panel and it ran perfectly. Great support (the diagram), fast delivery and fair pricing. Not bad!

Refrigerator and freezer drawer would not maintain set temperature

Condenser fan motor was running slow. This was not a problem included in your list of possible problems. I thought that maybe the capacitor was bad but have no way to check it. So I ordered one. when I received it, I installed it. That was not the problem. So I ordered a fan motor and installed it. That was not the problem. So finally I ordered a control board and installed it. That solved the problem. So maybe you should put "cond.fan motor runs slow" in your list of possible faults and what causes that problem. Capacitor was easy to install, simply remove the cover plate, flip off retaining wire, unplug the capacitor and replace. Fan motor was a bit more difficult. It must be removed from mount after fan scroll is removed. Remove one screw that holds scroll, bend the top down and remove. Then pull hard on fan blade to remove it. It must be installed on new motor. Two screws in frame mount can be removed with some effort if you have a 1/4" drive ratchet with a Phillips screwdriver bit. Then pull frame open and install new motor. Push fan blade on new motor shaft hard. Replacing control board was easy. I used a pair of long nose pliers with 90 degree bend to get mounting pins closed to pull board off.

The evaporator fan in the freezer compartment began making a loud noise.

I found a replacement evaporator fan motor and 2 mounting bracket grommets at PartSelect.com at a reasonable price. I watched the installation video provided and installed the new parts as shown in the video start to finish installation time 22 minutes.i

In my rental house, something had happened to one of the freezer shelves by the previous tenants. It left only one shelf to use so I ordered a freezer door shelf which is basically a bar to hold things on the molded shelf. Without it, the shelf was unusable.

Thanks to your informative website, installation and assembly of the evaporator fan and motor was very easy. One thing I am constantly worried when I repair and replace parts around my house is getting correct and matching parts. Your website is very informative in this respect and the tutorial videos are excellent aids in replacing parts, fixing problems, and troubleshooting issues. I have added your website to favorites in my browse for future reference.

When the new one came in, I just opened the refrigerator's door and plugged (put)it into place and slid down to lock it in place. That's it. The order situation was more frustrated than the installations part.

Just as your video described, although due to the age of the fridge, it took a bit longer to remove the defective switch. Your video made this so simple, I can't imagine why we lived with a dark fridge for so long! I was ready to buy a whole new fridge, as repairmen are often nonexistent for small repairs. I am the biggest fan of your company & it's repair video. THANK YOU SO MUCH

I pulled down the wire around the glass cover...released on end of the wire from its holder being careful to not let the glass cover drop. Unscrewed the bulb and replaced with replacement. Easy, easy.
