Hesitated for a month.
Bought part most likely to have failed.
Almost instant delivery (as always).
Put in part in 15 minutes (including taking cover off).
Turn frig. on. First nothing, then in a few minutes it cranks up -- oh, how beautiful. It's been working perfectly ever since.
Thanks for being great help!

Stopped cooling

Repair man that looked at it said it was the thermostat and that he would order the part. Waited two weeks with no word, so I ordered the part on line, got it the next day and installed it. The only hard part of the installation was getting to the three screws (located vertically in top of refrigerator section) to remove them. Simple three wire clip on changed unit. Total time took about 5 minutes. Refrigerator started cooling when plugged back in. Unfortunately, cooling again stopped within a day, so the original problem was more extensive than just the thermostat (so much for the service call diagnosis). Thoroughly pleased with part ordering, would do it again.

Lower Light Socket removed and Wires capped with wire nuts

My tenants moved out of my rental property and abandoned their refrigerator there. The freezer door would not close properly because someone had previously removed the lower door support bracket and failed to replace the lower bracket shim that positions the lower part of the freezer door properly out from the refrigerator cabinet causing the door gasket seal to bind before the freezer door was fully closed. I removed and replaced this lower door bracket with a new shim made up of serveral thicknesses of cardboard to achieve this spacing and freezer door now closes and seals properly. They had never connected a water supply to the refrigerator although this model is equiped with an ice maker and in door ice and cold water dispenser. The access panel on the back of the unit had been previously removed and discarded. I made up a new access panel from cardboard and connected the water line to the solenoid valve. Valve was so old it would barely open when valve energized and water flow was too slow to make proper sized ice cubes and fill a water glass. I purchased a new water solenoid valve and replaced ther original valve and cured that problem. Replacing the access panel cured an improper cooling problem because with panel removed, most of the air flow bypasses the condenser coils. Lastly I replaced the upper tubular light bulb and the lower light socket I purchased here and installed a 40 watt bulb in the new light socket. Presto! I was able to turn non working abandoned refrigerator into a workable unit.

Original Handle Broke

  • Customer: Eric from Dayton OH
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 2 of 3 people found this instruction helpful
Original handle had broken, and super glue wasn't holding any longer. It's just three screws, two up top and one on the bottom that hold the handle on. The fridge and thus the handle comes in three colors (white, biscuit ,and black) I had to email customer service to find out that white is part no PS330447. I got an absurdly fast reply to my question given it was a Saturday afternoon, so that made it easy.
