I would find the fridge warm inside and not running, so I jiggled/turned the temperature knob and the fridge starts working. I come back later and find it warm again. Problem continued to worsen, could not rely on fridge anymore, considered buying a new one ($500+)

I compared my problem to those on this site's problem descriptions. Others had the exact same issue so I felt confident about the fix and ordered a new thermostat. All it took to fix : Unplug fridge, use a 1/4" nut-driver to remove one screw, drop the panel, pull off temp knob, unhook 3 wires, pull out thermostat, remove plastic tube on sensor, replace plastic tube on sensor of new thermostat. Reverse assembly, done in 15 minutes. This is a simple fix, anyone can do it. (Total repair: $74.00)

I removed the screws on top of the refrigerator and the freezer door, lifted the fresh food door off bottom hinge laid it on a covered floor, used a pair of wire cutters to cut old gasket. then pulled the gasket straight out all the way around. then I started on one corner using a putty knife to push the new gasket under plastic trim, then put gasket on opposite corner at top of door then did the same with other two corners, then used putty knife to go all the way around sliding gasket under trim. was easy.

I unplugged the refrigerator(for safety). Using a 1/4" nut driver I removed 1 screw holding ice tray rack. I then removed the 2 screws holding the lower shroud inside the freezer section. I then removed 1 screw holding cover plate where ice maker would be and disconnected the ground wire from the back panel. I then removed the 2 screws holding the back panel in place. This allowed me to removed back panel from from inside the freezer. I removed the fan blades from evaporator motor by pulling straight away from motor. I was then able to disconnect the power wires and the ground wire from evaporator motor. Using the 1/4" nut driver I removed the 2 screws holding the front motor bracket and removed the evaporator motor from its bracket housing. Using the an electrical cord that i had fashioned with two female spade connectors on each lead of the wire, i connected these to the motor and plugged the male end of the electrical cord into a standard 110v outlet to verify that the motor was in fact the defective component. The motor did not operate so I replaced the evaporator motor with a new motor and put everything back in reverse order. The refrigerator is running like a champ and keeping the refrigerator contents a cool 42 degrees. Thanks PartSelect.com

Instructions came with the part I ordered and they were very easy to follow. Basically you have to remove the cardboard cover from the back. Then you remove the four screws at the bottom (2 front, 2 back) that hold the bottom plate on. My husband tilted frig and held it while I put a block(4" x 1/2") under the bottom outside frame (not the bottom plate). You can see a ridge on the frame which is where I placed the block. My husband braced the frig the whole time I did the repair just to ensure it didn't fall on me even though it was blocked. The bottom plate didn't slide back at first. I took a flat screw driver and hammer and slightly tapped the bottom plate through the screw hole that secures the bottom plate to the frame. I tapped 2 or 3 times...gently each tap...until the bottom plate dropped down. Which was the 1/2" noted in the instructions. I then was able to access the front wheel, remove the pin and replace with the new one. We replaced both front wheels so I did not replace the bottom plate until we replaced the second wheel. We removed the block and tilted the frig to the opposite side, blocked then I replaced the second wheel. Once that was done I removed the block, my husband let the frig down gently and I went to the back and tapped the bottom plate forward. It didn't quite want to go back in place but with patience it finally and then was able to put all screws back in. Donna
