I pick up very fast at these kind of small jobs but because of my very busy schedule I decided to call (2 times) technicians about my problem but none of them had any idea. About my repair, I removed the grill at the bottom of the refrigerator, unscrew a small plate (located on the bottom left side) that's holding the defrost timer. I plug on the new part, screw back the plate with the defrost timer and that was it. Don't forget to turn clockwise with your finger the timer until you hear a "click" and then turn it slightly more to the right. There is also a video on U-tube.

Freezer side cold, Refrigerator side too warm.

Removed bottom grill, removed two screws on left side and removed timer, unplugged it and plugged in new timer and reinstalled. Less than 10 mins. The Thermostat is in the freezer section behind the back panel. Removed all contents, removed shelving, removed 5 nut screws, and removed panel. Thermostat was clamped to top of coil assembly and was very easy to unplug and remove. New thermostat had a clamp built into it and was very easy to plug in and reinstall to the freezer coil. About 15 mins. This is an easy job for anyone who has any mechanical ability at all.

I noticed that the two gears weren't meshing together so upon inspection I saw that one of the gears had an inner piece missing making it weak so it kept popping out away from the other great. I ordered the new gear and unscrewed the old one off and put the new one on. So easy. It made Ice beautiful after that

Freezer wouldn't go in to defrost cycle

After some troubleshooting to ensure the thermostat and heating element were working, determined that the defrost timer was the problem. With the defective part, I was able to manually advance the timer to activate the defrost cycle, but it wouldn't do so on its own. Unplugged the refrigerator from the wall. Timer is located in the refrigerator compartment at the very top. The compartment houses the cooling thermostat, the light bulb and the defrost timer. Using 1/4" nut driver, remove 4 screws holding compartment cover to top of fridge. Lower a bit to access electrical wiring. Wiring harness can be unplugged to work on the timer away from the fridge which makes it a bit easier. Timer is mounted with 2 phillips head screws. Remove screws and unplug timer from wiring. Install new timer, plug in wiring, secure with the phillips head screws and remount entire compartment.

I watched the video and it seemed pretty easy. I ordered the new ice maker. It arrived in 5 days and I chanted it in less the 30 minutes. A little tricky seeing where you have to loosen the screws but not hard. and in 2 hours I had ice again.

it was great. I ordered the capacitor for my frigidaire frig and it arrived
in 3 days. plugged in the part to the compressor and my frig has been
working ever since. I spent 3 minutes ordering the part and 30 seconds
attaching it to the frig. Easy, very easy. saved myself a 75 dollar repair
visit. thanks
