The freezer was too warm. The fan was running: the diagnosis tool did not work!

I used the tool at Partselect that in theory allows diagnostic of the problem to be repaired. The result was that more tan 90% of the time with the introduced symptoms it had to be the thermostat. I order the part, got it quickly and installed. It did not fix the problem. So, be careful with the diagnostic tool, because it is just based on what most people buy when they have a particular problem. Videos for installation are great. If diagnosis was better, this would be fantastic. In my case there might be a different problem.

When i found out there was no thread in brace where bolts were supposed to screw in, I panicked. I thought I would have to send part back or go to a machine shop to make a thread. I called a friend for help and he told me the bolts would make the thread if I just screwed them in. Sure enough, the bolts made the thread and then I just proceeded to instal motor and put refrigerator back together. It was simple.

This repair on this model is super easy because the shroud for the fan is not really attached except for the bottom so I was able to gently bend it to give em enough space to pull the broken fan off and put the new one on.

Freezer was warm

I first noticed my ice cream getting soft. Then 2 days later the alarm went. I emptied the freezer, opened the panels and saw no frost. I saw that 99% of issues were resolved with a defrost timer and thermostat so I ordered those. I have to say the parts came quickly and they went in very easy. My freezer seems to be in the 1% category though. It's still not cooling even though I can measure the temperature at the front of the evaporator coil is cold but by the end of the coil it's almost room temperature. I think a repairman is called for.

Fridge quit working.

A little research told me the hum plus no cooling was either the compressor or the relay. I ordered the new relay and put it in but it didn't fix the problem. I ended up having to buy a new fridge, but it was worth the $30 gamble to see if I could fix it on the cheap and it saved me the money a service call would've cost. Pretty easy installation, just in a tight space on my model.

Fan would not start occasionally

I unscrewed the screws that held the old fan on, disconnected the wiring harness and removed the old fan. I pulled the blades off the motor and put it on the new fan. One thing of note, the screw holes on the new fan weren't threaded. I assume this is by design, so I used the screws to thread the holes before installing it in the freezer. Once I did this, the rest of the installation was easy, just screw it back in and connect the wiring harness.

Rattling Noise from behind frig

  • Customer: Michael from Rockford MI
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set

Initially, I traced the noise down to the evaporator motor area. I thought it was the fan blade so I ordered and changed it. Noise level better but still not good. Then I ivestigated problem area again. Removed the motor,discoverd that the motor shaft was loose /drifting which caused the "hummm" and uneven fan blade rotation. Orderd and installed new motor and all is good.

inspected visible refrigeration lines for evidence of leaking, found nothing substantial that would cause concern, ordered capacitor and defrost thermostat simply because both are inexpensive parts and theoretically either could be causing the problem. Both parts were very simple to install especially since I am a semi-retired refrigeration man.
