I removed the housing at the top of the refrigerator compartment that contained the reefer light and temperature adjustment knob. This required a small nut-driver. Inside, I found the old defrost control, unplugged it, unscrewed it with a Phillips screwdriver, and replaced it with the replacement part. Then I replaced the housing to its original position.

removed freezer door and installed the new one. This was a pretty easy thing to do, although putting the old handle on the new door was a challenge. No knowing that there is a plastic piece holding the top of the handle i broke the that piece and had to order another one. Mean while the freezer was making alot of frost inside, so that had to be cleaned after the new part came.

I moved into a house with two guys that would have never even thought of fixing the problem. I'm a girl and couldn't live with a fridge without all it's parts so I looked in other places and decided to buy from here because of the reviews. I got the parts in two days with no problems at all, they were easy to install and the fridge looks better and we can make better use of the space.
I would recommend this store to anyone!!
