I went on Parts Select and typed in the problem, and they gave me the parts that might be the problem. So, I ordered the two parts, and put them in. Was really easy, as there are videos on parts select to help you remove the part and put the new one in. So simple. My freezer is working right now, so time will tell.

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

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!

Frost on every thing, ice freezing in clumps in the ice bucket.

I followed the instructions according to the video on your web site. I removed the shelves and the ice bucket, then the back panel to access the thermostat and the temperature sensor. I cut the wires, then proceeded to replace the parts. Because I am 75 years old and not as agile as a younger person and I have to wear glasses made it was more difficult for me, it took me longer to do the job. My assistent (my sweet wife) was a lot of help because I had a hard time telling the orange wire from the pink wire. I reinstalled every thing back and plugged in the electric cord and prayed. Next, because the ice clumps broke the auger, I had to replace that. We pulled up the video and watched it over to check the sequences, and that made following the instructions very easy. With my assistent we were able to replace the auger without to much difficulty. This has fixed the problem. AMEN!

Removed the interior shelves and set screw which holds the light cover in place. Next I removed the four screws that hold the back panel in place. Located the defrost thermostat and removed it from the aluminum tubing by unclipping it, just as it was illustrated in the repair video. Cut the wires and stripped the ends and then connected them to the ends of the new defrost thermostat. Connected them together with an 16-14 gauge crimp style end cap. Taped the entry point into the end cap to reduce moisture penetration. Reassembled the back panel, light cover and shelves.

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.

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.

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).
