I watched the video then ordered the DEFROST TIMER it was here in two days (ordered late Saturday arrived Tuesday). Spent $.16 on two wire nuts and went to work . The repair took one hour including defrosting the coils with a hair dryer . Your website is my " GO TOO " for parts and repair. I spent less than $20 including shipping !

Fridge and Freezer too warm

I noticed that the fridge was getting too warm and that the freezer side was starting to get frost build up on the back wall. I figured I would replace the heater and heater thermostat just to be safe. I had to remove the 2 back screws and panel to reveal the evaporator coils. They were a solid block of ice so i had to use a hair dryer to melt all the ice off the coils. Install was a snap after that. Make sure you have a couple of small wire nuts since you have to cut the wires to the thermostat to wire on the new one. One week later and so far, so good. If I didn't have to take the time to defrost the coils, the install would have been under 30 minutes easy.

Freezer going into defrost too long & re-freezing items

I was intimidated by this repair(as I am with most repairs), because there were 2 possible problems. But being able to purchase both parts for $30 (including shipping) made it worth a try. Thanks to the instructional videos that were sent, the repair was much easier than I anticipated. For me, the hardest part was fitting my shoulders in the narrow freezer. Now the appliance works like a charm. This would have been a $150-$200 repair had I called a company to do it.

not cold enough in the freezer compartment and cabin pressure also warmer than usual.

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

Unplug the refrigerator and remove frozen food, shelving, light and back panel inside the freezer section to expose the cooling coils. The coils were completely iced over. Using a wet dry vacuum to discharge the air toward the coils quickly melted the ice. The trouble shooting section on your website described my problem and I bought both items which were the most common problem. Using the video(s) e-mailed to me when purchasing the parts provided great information regarding details for the repair. After replacing both parts the refrigerator is working great having spent just under $25.00.

Watched the video and worked next to the laptop to pause it at every step. Ordered a new plastic locking nut with the auger. Good thing, because the old one cracked when the e-ring was pried off. Put the new auger in and returned the bucket to the freezer. Changed the water filter. Like magic the water dispenser worked again! Made sure the spring-arm moved after cubes were in the bucket. It was stiff. Popped it a few times to make sure the lever worked OK. After the bucket filled checked both ice functions. Cubes dropped right away, crusher worked after a couple tries. Releasing the plastic tabs was the hardest part. WATCH THE ENTIRE VIDEO, THEN FOLLOW THE STEPS IN ORDER. The ice and water are flowing again! Many thanks for a great how-to video!
