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.

I watched the videos before I received my parts. I thawed the freezer out, removed the panel in the back. Cut the wires to the defrost thermostat and spliced the new one on with wire nuts and tape. Then I did the same for the temp. sensor. Put it all back together. Now the freezer isn't running all the time. I set the temperatures back to normal and it seams to be fine.

Part select was great. I entered the model number and was able to locate a list of problems associated with my refrigerator. I was able to view a repair video, courtesy of part select. I followed the instructions and the repair was simple. The hard part was trying to remember how everything went back together. I unplugged the unit and removed the freezer racks. I then unscrewed the back panel within the unit. I then placed an old towel inside the unit and used a hair dryer to melt the ice build up inside. I also removed the light bulb and then removed ice maker. I then located the old defrost thermostat and replaced it as demonstrated in the video. I then located temp sensor and replaced it. It took longer trying to secure the rear panels than the actual repair. My mistake was I had secured the ice maker unit before securing the fan panel. I would secure the large panel first, then followed by the light bulb/fan panel. The ice maker should go in last. It has been 8 days since the repair and it still working! The total cost was $27.

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.
