Handle replacement

The screw that held the bottom of the handle had pulled out of the metal fridge door. I decided to replace everything in the assembly. The replacement parts were perfect and the job was so simple that the replacement only required five minutes. I removed the original parts and replaced them with the parts that I had ordered from PartsSelect. What made me feel more confident with the activity was that the PartSelect on-line appliance catalogs had good diagrams and good part number cross-references. It was a slick process.

I unscrewed the top of the handle that was still attached to the door and replaced it with the new handle and really made sure the bottom screw was tight and then positioned the top holes and screwed them into place. VERY EASY!!!

The repair literally takes 5 minutes...and that included 2 minutes to find my Phillips screwdriver. Save a ton of money, and do simple repairs like this yourself.

took the old one out, put the new one in. Will be an ongoing problem due to the flimsy nature of the rack. Refrigerator is in a rental unit. Great to know parts a just a phone call away, and arrive super fast.

Exactly as the video showed, except I had to take the evap coil cover off and use a hair dryer to thaw it out. It was still frosting up too much, so I ordered the thermostat as well. Both were really easy, once i saw the location of the defrost timer and the thermostat. Thanks for the great site, prices that put the big store to shame, and the good video too!

Cleaned the surfaces,installed the new handle...WaLa! Could not have been easier. Plus the new handle arrived in 2-3 days. AND was less than 1/2 the price of ordering through Sears Parts. I would use PartsSelect again in a heartbeat! Thank you for your great customer service.

Freezer working but fridge not cold.

My unit was not defrosting. Defrost heater was not functioning. Defrost heater tested good with a meter. Thermostat (cold) tested bad with a meter. Defrost timer was working properly. I replaced the thermostat but I had to buy red crimp connectors because the blue ones that came with the thermostat are designed for wire bigger than 18 AWG wire. The thermostat leads as well as the wire in my unit were 18 AWG. The crimp was not tight enough for my liking with the blue butt connectors. I also purchased smaller heat shrink tubing. After replacement, the defrost heater started working. I could see it glowing. Unfortunately immediately after getting the heater working the contacts in the defrost timer arced and stuck together thus preventing the timer from exiting defrost mode. The heater went off at this point indicating that the thermostat was now working. I then purchased and replaced the defrost timer and now the fridge is functioning properly. I noticed both replacement parts, even though I looked up my fridge model, were different part numbers than the originals. I'm guessing the new parts are improved? I also noticed the timer was an 8/30 rather than a 10/30 like the original. The fridge is working better than when it was new so evidently defrosting every 8 as opposed to every 10 hours is better for my unit.

Long story short:

Buy the correct crimp/butt connectors before beginning replacement of the thermostat and proactively replace the defrost timer since it is rather inexpensive.
