After reading other posts, I decided to change the defrost thermostat, so I watched the videos, and did that. It got better, but the problem persisted, and the ice was still building up in the freezer section. So I decided that the problem was with the defrost heater. I ordered a new one, that was here under 24hs (using the Fedex ground). I replaced it, measured the old one and saw that it was not passing any current at all (so it was really burnt). Now the fridge is good as new, maintaining the proper temperatures both at Freezer and Fridge sections. Thank you Parts Select ! With $ 70 in parts I was able to get back my appliance working !!!

Front of hanging rail was broken and often slipped

Having looked at the broken area, in some frustration, for several years, I had a good idea how it all went together: the front end slips over a metal lip suspended from the front of the shelf above, and the rear is held in place by a single screw (single slot with hex-dead). The most time was taken clearing the items off the shelf above. Having done that, the shelf was easily lifted up and removed. Flip it over to expose the screw at the back. Remove that screw and discard the old/broken hanging rail. Slip the front end of the new rail (carefully) over the metal lip. At the rear, line up the hole on the hanger with the hole in the mounting bracket and re-insert the one screw. Re-install shelf and slide the drawer back into place on the hangers. Good to go.

The repair was straightfoward. The evaporator motor I received from partselect was a different model with different wiring configurations. I cut the wires from the new motor per the instructions I received with the new motor and I did the same with the wires that connect to the fridge. Once I matched the wires and secured them with electrical caps I began to put the evaporator motor to the base and started screwing the screws the way I took them off. Once I connected the wire harness to the back of the freezer and turned it on I noticed a big difference in air flow. I was surprised at how easy it was to fix my refrigirator problem. It's been a few weeks now and the fridge is cold and working like it should. Don't be afraid of this task. it's very easy and will save you a ton of money. Thanks partselect.
