Freezer section too warm. Would not go below 20 F

I replaced both the Defrost Thermostat and the Temperature Sensor located on the top of the cooling coils. I ordered them because they were the least expensive items that addressed my problem. They did not correct my problem. I then ordered the Main Control circuit board. I installed the board in about 15 minutes. Finally my freezer returned to the set temperature of 0 degrees F. Problem solved

Defrost cycle staying on too long causing ice to melt, refreeze and seizing up ice maker. Replaced temp sensor and defrost thermostat just to be sure. Fixed the problem.

The fridge and freezer were not staying cold because the coil was icing up.

Frost build up on coils

Removed shelves and light bulb. Undid the two screws on the back panel with nut driver. Snipped the two wire leads to the defrost thermostat. ( orange and pink wires) Carefully removed the defrost thermostat from the coil. Stripped both ends of the wire leads about a half inch and onnected with two wire nuts. Then wrapped with electrical tape to seal from moisture. Carefully attached defrost thermostat to coil. Screwed the back panel back on. Reinstalled light bulb and shelves. And plugged refrigerator back in. Works like a charm. Saved close to 100.00 dollars doing repair myself.

The replacement went very well. The video was not just as the unit I have but with a little work I worked it out. The service was very good. I received the part in 1 Day. Thanks for the good info. Keep up the good work regarding the videos. This helped. Just for the info. I did a post mortem of the switch. The strain of the wires pulling on the switch caused the failure of the switch. The design of the old temp switch was bad and workmanship was very poor in the original box. Thanks again Ron

REFRIGERATOR TOO WARM

We used Partselect troubleshooting appilication to figure out what was most likely causing the problem and what part would fix it. The suggested part was the freezer's defrost thermostat and the probability that this would fix it was 52%! The diagnosis made sense because when we emptied the freezer to see the part, the coils were frozen solid with a thick layer of ice. We thawed the ice and the refrigerator worked fine for a day and a half at which point the ice was back and the refrigerator was warm again. We ordered the part. It came in 2 days. We snipped two wires and removed the old part, twisted the wires of the new one in place, taped it up and it worked! Fast, easy, cheep! $8 for the part, about the same for shipping and no $70 service call. Selectparts is bookmarked for "house repair"!

Freezer temperature not cold enough

I just followed the directions given and watched the video provided on line from Parts Select. The only disadvantage is my size trying to get my arms into the freezer space. A woman could do it much easier because of their size. The freezer is working fine now and maintaing temperature required or specified. If necessary I'll use this site again. Thanks...a 74 yr young senior

I removed the ice bucket dissembled it and replaced the dispenser cover. New cover is clear plastic and looks stronger than the old abs item. The old one was cracked and prevented the deflector from opening and allowing cubes to drop through the dispenser.

Large pieces of plastic started showing up in the ice.

I determined that the auger was broken. But with company coming in a week I did not want to take a chance with needing additional parts. I simply ordered the whole assembly. It arrived in plenty of time and installing it was easy. Take it out of the box, rinse it out with warm soap and water, dry it out, remove the old bucket and slide the new one in its place. Absolutely no problem! I was surprised on how well the new ice dispenser worked after the swap. My old one must have been broken for some time.

Took old part out, put new part in. Thats not the story here, it was the ease of finding the part needed, the price was very reasonable and the service was second to none! The part arrived in less than 48hrs. (no special shipping was used) I would like to thank the people at PartSelect for a great experience. Other companies I have delt with in the past could take a few lessons in customer service from PartSelect. I highly recommend them! Patrick Spinks
