Defrost timer was not working

Fridge not cooling

  • Customer: WESTLEY from HATTIESBURG MS
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

My fridge side had warmed up to 70 degrees but the freezer side was still cold. The coils inside had iced up. After thawing with a hair dryer, it froze back after another week. I removed the old defrost thermostat and wired the heater strip directly and turned on the defrost timer. It began melting the ice so that ruled out the heater strip being bad. I couldn't get a reading with my ohm meter on the defrost thermostat so I took a chance and bought the part. Installation was a breeze and it fixed the problem.

Handle borke into 2 piece

As I was aware hot install it, bec a couple of days back, the handle pop out of the lower screw shaft. The easy steps is put the lower part first, keep the handle diagonal to the door, once the lower screw is fit into the shaft, turn it to right to place the holes on the door holes and just jack in the screw.

Its pretty easy.

Website was great!

The defrost timer was right in front. 2 minutes and a screwdriver and I had it replaced.

To replace the thermostat, I had to take out the back panel, defrost it and then install the new part. the only problem was that the heatshrink tubing they sent was too large. Otherwise, it worked great.

Having tried PartSelect.com before, I was very comfortable with the process. Input my symptoms and the feed back I received was that one of the 2 things (Defrost Timer or Defrost Thermostat)might need replacement. Since the cost was not much and over night shipping would cost more than the product, I decided to order both the parts. Changing parts was a breeze. The instructions posted by others on your web site were very easy to follow. You guys save me a bundle every time I have any thing going worng with any of my appliances.

I removed the screws that were in the original part that had a broken plastic endpiece on it. Put the new hanging rail on with the screwdriver and good as new!. I also replace some clips that were worn out and kept coming off when I put too much in the freezer doors. They were snap on so it took less than a minute to replace all 4 that I ordered. Now my refriderator and freezer work like it new and doesn't keep falling apart.

My drawer rail broke off on the right side.

The process of repairing the draw was very simply. First I removed the broken part with a screw driver and simply slide the new part on and secured the part w/ a screw and that was it.

The only problem I had was that the end cap was sent before the rack. This refrigerator is in our cottage and I brought up the end cap while waiting to receive the rack. I couldn't remember where I put the end cap, so when the rack came it took me a few weekends to find the end cap. Once I did, it took me less than 1 minute to repair. I put the rack on the end caps & pushed the end cap in place. DONE!
