The repair, if you want to call it that, was a complete no-brainer. The glass slipped right into the shelf. No tools were needed. I was afraid that the glass might break during shipment. However, it was packaged and secured several times over that it was in no danger of breaking during delivery. The part came sooner than I anticipated. I am extremely pleased with this order.

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.

The shelf was out too far to be used on the bottom shelf. The top shelf, which was not as deep was then moved to the bottom and it worked fine. I am wondering if the shelf that was not as deep as the part I received is available. Thank you - Maxine

Freezer door sagging due to warped hinge

Just block the door up so it doesn't fall off, remove the two screws, replace hinge, and replace screws. My wife could have done it. Metal replacement part is much better than the original plastic that warped from day one.

defrost heater not heating due to bad contact

  • Customer: Mark from Columbia MO
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I removed the back panel of the freezer using a nutdriver and located the defrost heater under the evaporator. It is strapped to the evaporator with aluminum straps that could not be undone without removing the evaporator (which would involve recharging the system and I have no tools to do that). I cut the straps with a nipper near where they were folded over each other (toward the bottom), and removed them. Fortunately there is a lot of extra strap, so I was able to remove the eye of the strap and reuse them. I removed the old element and installed the new, and wrapped the removed straps around the heater and evaporator where they were before, and plugged the element in. I did this on an old Kenmore refrigerator before also, and it had spring clips for the heater so you didn't have to cut anything. However, reusing the straps as I did resulted in the heater being adequately supported.
