Remove 4 screws that hold up overhead controls, this is also the part that holds the light. Unplug the timer and replace. Super simple and runs great now. After you plug it in it may take a few minutes to kick on the compressor but it will. Also I was pleased it was a factory Frigidare part. Price was right.

Heater defrost rod

  • Customer: James from Hickory, NC
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set

The rod, that looks a like a oven heater element, had burnt into and was not defrosting the coolant coils in the freezer was freezing up. I took the back panel off from inside the freezer and let it unthraw. The freezer coils were held into a frame with only two screws which I took out. I unplugged the heater element and easily pulled the coils out as little as possible, taking care not to break the copper rods with the freon inside them. On each side of the coils I had to take off a silver aluminum strip that held the element close to the coils so I could get it away from the coils so I could pull the heater rod straight down. I then fished the new piece up through the coils,which is a little tricky because of not room to move,then put the strips back, pushed the coils back into place and attached the screws and hooked the heater element back. Screwed the back panel on and it worked fine. This was my first fridge repair.

It would freeze up or not cool at all, depended where the clock stopped.

Removed the lower trim panel from front of fridg. and loosened two screws enough to turn it about 1/4 inch so the screw heads were in the larger holes. Pulled it out disconnected the wire connector and transfered the heat shield and screws to the new clock, connected the wire connector and aligned the screws. tightened them and job done. Has worked like new sense. Thanks Roger
