Removed the interior shelves and set screw which holds the light cover in place. Next I removed the four screws that hold the back panel in place. Located the defrost thermostat and removed it from the aluminum tubing by unclipping it, just as it was illustrated in the repair video. Cut the wires and stripped the ends and then connected them to the ends of the new defrost thermostat. Connected them together with an 16-14 gauge crimp style end cap. Taped the entry point into the end cap to reduce moisture penetration. Reassembled the back panel, light cover and shelves.

I followed a set of instructions that were already posted by someone else. Take pictures to help you reassemble everything properly. The helix is held on by a plastic nut which has a left-handed thread. That nut is round (no flats for a wrench) and it would have required a special tool but I wrapped the thick rubber band around it and used the pliers to remove it without damaging it. The whole job took less than a half hour.

Ice dispenser door not closing. Two possible fixes

Watched the videos for replacing both the solenoid and the ice door flapper. Ordered the parts, watched the videos again and changed out the parts. I used a Philips head screwdriver and a little WD40 to clean up some rust. The instructions in the video were very easy to follow and simplified the process. PartsSelect's video showed the demonstration on a refer like mine as opposed to another site, which helped me be familiar whenI opened it up.

Found the problem, seen what it was looked up the part, watched the video was real easy to fixed so did it myself. If I would of called a repair man it would of been around $200.00 for everything I did it for the price of the part.

Unplug refrigerator. Take off back plate with socket driver. Take screws off inlet valve. Then with bowl underneath to catch water, pull off hoses from compression fit. Then reverse to put back together. (Cleaned and dusted the back/sides of fridge too!)

The main control board is situated at the rear of the freezer bottom right hand side there are about 12 screws holding the cover in place a nut driver is perfect to speed up removal of this cover. At this stage you can see several plugs on the board remove as many of these as you can with the board still place however there are couple which cannot be removed with the board in place be careful not to pull on the wires when removing the pugs(don't worry about where they go as they are all different and will only go in one location) The main board is held in place by four nylon stand off posts with barb retainer clips to remove these you must squeeze the barb in with some pliers and lift the board at the same time I did the two at one end then the two at the other end once you have removed the board remove the remaining plugs the power in and the plug on the left hand edge of the board. The new board I received was slightly different to mine as it can be used on several models of freezers be sure to read the instruction that come with the new board to ensure you remove or install links as stated in the installation notes. Again you cannot get the plugs in the wrong place as they are different I was able to install most of the plugs prior to fitting the board on the stand off posts at this point care must taken to ensure all of the bunches cables are going to be clear of the cover this was most time consuming as there is a lot of extra wire, once this was completed I replaced the cover with a nut driver and tested the freezer with a thermometer placed in the freezer compartment after about 30 minutes the temperature started dropping (the compressor sounded different more powerful!! all done.

I had called "Affordable Appliance" to send a repairman to assess our problem. A horrible man - rude, dirty, taciturn - came to our house. He took the cover off of the panel on the back of the fridge. He determined that the master control board had to be replaced. He demanded $630.00 to replace that part. I said "no thanks" and sent him on his way. I then called Part Select and ordered that same part. It cost $155.00 + shipping & handling. It arrived the very next day and I installed it in very few minutes and it is working perfectly. The gentleman who answered the phone at Part Select could not have been more helpful. He was wonderful.

Looked for source of burnt electrical smell. Strong odor from where circuit board is located. Removed board and found black burn area on back side of board. Ordered new circuit board and crossed my fingers nothing else was wrong. Replaced and works like a champ. $150 repair beats $2000 replacement every time. Wife not so thrilled. Was hoping for new refrigerator.

I am more than 80 yrs, always thought I could fix just about everything--but, this looked complicated. Once I received the new icemaker; took a good look where the screw-holes, etc. were, then removed the "old" one. Took about 20 or 30 minutes, then the "new" one was easily installed.

Temp. Sensor was under an egg shaped cover on the left side wall in the refrigerator. Remove the cover, cut the two wires to the old sensor and remove it. Connect the new sensor to the two wires using butt connectors. Replace cover and done.
