Support rail for meat drawer broke (again).

  • Customer: Peter from San Antonio TX

Took out the shelf, removed the rest of the broken rail, replaced it. Piece of cake. (Note: The meat drawer support rails on this otherwise good refrigerator are very flimsy and break with some regularity even when the meat drawer isn't heavily filled. A good idea to keep spare support rails at home.)

Freezer wouldn't go in to defrost cycle

  • Customer: John from Long Beach CA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Socket set

After some troubleshooting to ensure the thermostat and heating element were working, determined that the defrost timer was the problem. With the defective part, I was able to manually advance the timer to activate the defrost cycle, but it wouldn't do so on its own. Unplugged the refrigerator from the wall. Timer is located in the refrigerator compartment at the very top. The compartment houses the cooling thermostat, the light bulb and the defrost timer. Using 1/4" nut driver, remove 4 screws holding compartment cover to top of fridge. Lower a bit to access electrical wiring. Wiring harness can be unplugged to work on the timer away from the fridge which makes it a bit easier. Timer is mounted with 2 phillips head screws. Remove screws and unplug timer from wiring. Install new timer, plug in wiring, secure with the phillips head screws and remount entire compartment.

It took less time to change out the rail than it did to take all the items off the shelf. Literally. Old rail holds on to the door with two snap in notches. I was able to easily unsnap the two ends of the broken rail and snap in the new rail in less than 30 seconds. No tools or mechanical knowledge needed.

Faulty defrost timer. Freezer would not maintain temperature

  • Customer: Steve from Nineveh IN
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

Watched the video once. Removed four 1/4 inch screws with a nut driver unplugged the unit, took out two screws securing the timer. Replaced did all of this in about 10 minutes. It was "exactly" as the video showed and it's worked perfectly since the replacement of the faulty timer. I saved a $75.00 service call minimum and the part was more than likely cheaper from Part Select than from the repair facility. Although I'm a pretty good handy man, you would not need any experience to make this repair. The instructions are precise and the part fit perfectly.
