Freezer temperature not cold enough

  • Customer: William from Crossville TN
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

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

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 compartment wouldn't regulate the temperature properly

  • Customer: Larry from Boyds MD
  • Difficulty: Easy

Using a nut driver, I removed the panel that covers the freezer coil. Using wire stripper/cutters. I replace the Temperature sensor and Thermostat. I also replaced the heater element that comes on when the freezer goes into defrost mode. Worked like a charm. The original problem was the freezer compartment would thaw just enough to start the melting process then freeze everything and build up ice to the point where the ice that was produced from the ice maker would just turn into a big block of ice. Everything is working perfectly now with only an hours worth of work and about $75.00 in parts.

I looked at the video that came with the part and followed what i saw. My wife and i was about to go out and spend between $1500 and $2500 on a new refrigerator due to continuous defrosting. It had been happening for about a year. I followed the instructions from the video and the defrosting has stopped. Thanks so much for the video and the part! We do not need a new refrigerator after all.

Based on instruction I replaced the defrost thermostat and the temperature sensor. There was no improvement. The defrost thermostat was supplied with orange and red wires. the original wires were orange and pink. I connected the 2 orange wires and the pink to the red. So I don't really know if that is the problem or not. currently I don't know what to do next anyone got an ideas? It has dual evaporation.

Side by side refrigerator side was not cooling, And freezer was not cold enough to keep ice from melting.

My fridge starting getting warm inside so I took the back panel of the freezer off and seen the coils being completely frozen. I thawed it with hair dryer and took out both the heater element and thermostat off and performed an ohm test with multimeter. Heater seeme good with 23 ohm resistance but thermostat had no current flow through it. After replacing the thermostat the fridge works like new. I replaced the heater as well even though it seemed okay for peace of mind.

I called angies list to get a name of a repair person . We were having very hot weather and I did not want my freezer food to spoil. The cost was not bad for the look see $127.00 plus parts and labor added on to this. I decided to look on the internet and found your services and the video on how to replace the part that might be bad. I bought a new thermostat and also a sensor and added the control board as the refrigerator is 13 years old. I spent a total of $206.00 and did the work myself so no labor cost. I was so happy as a new refrigerator like this one would be $3100.00 plus tax. Thank You R. Polglase
