Just as your video described, although due to the age of the fridge, it took a bit longer to remove the defective switch. Your video made this so simple, I can't imagine why we lived with a dark fridge for so long! I was ready to buy a whole new fridge, as repairmen are often nonexistent for small repairs. I am the biggest fan of your company & it's repair video. THANK YOU SO MUCH

I first watched the video on how to do it via YouTube, to make sure there were no hidden surprises. This was probably the easiest/ quickest repair I have ever done, the ONLY thing that took any time was removing the food from the freezer

Noisy evaporator fan motor

I replaced the noisy evaporator fan motor after watching the video provided. All went well and now I have a much quieter refrigerator. I took apart the old evaporator motor to see why it rattled when moved and it had an electrical part that came undone and was the cause of the obnoxious noise that came from the refrigerator. Now, my wife and I can sleep better now that the noisy fan was replaced.

The fan in the freezer was making noise.

I followed the instructions in the video. The decorative parts were slightly different than in the video, such as screws at the top versus the bottom, but all of the working parts were the same. I was somewhat hesitant about applying pressure to remove the locking spring and fan blades and to replace them but the video reassured me and all went well. The refrigerator is operating as quietly as when it was brand new.
