First I looked at the video on changing out the fan.Made a lot of difference. Everything was covered and made it simple. Wish I had gotten two grommets but the back one was in good shape and worked fine. My hearing isn't great but now I can't even hear the thing run unless the freezer door is open. The shipping was great! You sent it out immediately and in a few days it was here.

I replaced the thermostat, temperature sensor, and the run capacitor...refrigerator still not cooling. I checked the start relay and measured the input terminals on the compressor for the correct resistance...everything measured correctly. In a last ditch effort before calling for service, I pulled the main board, inspected it and saw the problem right away. One leg on the compression capacitor had desoldered itself. Got out my soldering iron and applied a good amount of solder to that point. Put everything back together and turn it on...problem fixed. The compressor kicked on right away and started cooling the refrigerator.

First thing I did was un-plug the fan motor located in the freezer compartment and test it for voltage, which it had, telling me the fan motor was shot.I ordered the parts, they arrived in short order and the fan motor was replaced. It took little time and there were no levers, pulleys,servos, gobs of wiring or stacks of gears in a maze of bearings to deal with. Unplug the unit, remove the food rack, ice cube maker(just loosen the 2 screws and lift up)remove the air channel in the center as well as the back panel. Unplug the fan motor and remove the screws securing the motor bracket and lift out. Very simple.

replaced the refrigerator door gasket

The original gasket had ripped and the magnet strip was hanging out. Following information from several youtube video clips & suggestion from the seller, I soaked the gasket in a tub of hot water for 30min to make it more pliable. After removing the old gasket, I put on the new, which only appeared to just snap into a metal tract. However the door couldn't seal. There were big gaps. That is when I realized that the gasket was still rigid. So I took a heat gun and carefully blew hot air on the gasket as I pulled it out enough for the metal edge of the gasket to attach itself to the refrigerator. Took quite a while to get it to seal correctly, but seems to be working well now.
