Like another post, the start relay rattled like a baby rattle. Replaced the start relay and freezer works great.

Freezer was not cycling and started freezing up around the compressor but was not able to freeze inside the box.

I knew that the problem had to do with the timer so I went online and looked at the schematic diagrams on Partselect and identified the part that should handle the problem. I ordered it and it arrived fairly quickly. It took a Phillips screw driver and about fifteen minutes to remove the old part and replace it with the new one. Very easy repair. It is working as it should now.

The freezer door wouldn't stay shut due to two irresponsible children.

We ordered the part, which was a key, tied it on the freezer door handle, locked the door and voila, the problem was fixed. (We still have the children. :-)

I located the part that was the culprit as it had buzzed very much before quitting. This is an easy removal as the part is in a two prong jack and just needs to be carefully removed with the new part inserted back in the jack provided. The refrigerator works fine now, but the run capacitor will still buzz on start up of the compressor. I do hope this is normal in this model? anyway it runs fine mow. Thank you.

Had to drag the full freezer out from the wall to expose the name plate, got the Model # and S/N and found the key on the partselect website in minutes. It was cheap so I got two. Other than FEDEX not knowing my address correctly, when I finally got the key it worked fine. Not a problem anymore.
Thanks

The repair was really easy - I used a phillips head screw driver to remove the screws and broken pieces of the handle, screwed the new one on and snapped the handle insert into place. I was thrilled to be able to find the parts so easily (the information you have online is really helpful!), the parts arrived much faster than I anticipated and the handle was easily replaced! Thank you!

I was surprised that the screws and trim piece were not included so make sure you have them from the old handle or order new. First removed the broken ends still on the freezer. I removed the small metal brackets from the old handle and put them on the new one, screwed the handle to the freezer and put the trim piece on. Real easy.

shut freezer-vacuum pump made hard to reopen-wife broke handle in tugging.

first removed two screws that held handle. Then replaced. Ordered a motor 3 years ago from land office with verbal over counter instructions and that was easier but to get part this time was very simple ! With the model number and name brand input on site I had part in 3 days instead of waiting for a chance to visit land store and HOPE they had the part. Y'all might consider a zoom feature for us older folks.

We removed the trim and the screws and kept them in a safe place until the handle arrived. It took only about 10 minutes start to finish. Very Easy!
