Handle replacement

The screw that held the bottom of the handle had pulled out of the metal fridge door. I decided to replace everything in the assembly. The replacement parts were perfect and the job was so simple that the replacement only required five minutes. I removed the original parts and replaced them with the parts that I had ordered from PartsSelect. What made me feel more confident with the activity was that the PartSelect on-line appliance catalogs had good diagrams and good part number cross-references. It was a slick process.

Checked defrost timer. It was a shocker: it was completely burnt out. Replaced it with the new part very easily. I thought now it would defrost properly but unfortunately the thermostat also was shot. I had ordered it along with the timer just in case. It was not expensive at all and I saved time but having it with me when I replaced the timer. NOW ALL IS WELL AND REFRIGERATOR SECTION COLLING PROPERLY. THANKS TO VIDEO AND PARTSELECT.

Using your online troubleshooter, it was probably the defrost timer and/or the defrost thermostat.Both cheap so I ordered both. The online repair videos showed how to replace those parts. Replaced the timer first with no problems. Removed the panel at the freezer back an saw a streak of black smoke on the white panel wall above the thermostat.Good chance this was the failure point.Video also showed how to replace this unit without any problem. Set the temperature control and let the frig run over night.Problem solved!Frig at 38d and freezer at 0d.

Remove 4 screws that hold up overhead controls, this is also the part that holds the light. Unplug the timer and replace. Super simple and runs great now. After you plug it in it may take a few minutes to kick on the compressor but it will. Also I was pleased it was a factory Frigidare part. Price was right.

Ordered the handle from Part Select, waited a couple days and it came in the mail. Husband took it to the rental and replaced the handle. Very easy process from beginning to end. Have put Part Select in our favorites to keep. Thank you so much for this service and the ease of the process.

Removed the lower trim panel from front of fridg. and loosened two screws enough to turn it about 1/4 inch so the screw heads were in the larger holes. Pulled it out disconnected the wire connector and transfered the heat shield and screws to the new clock, connected the wire connector and aligned the screws. tightened them and job done. Has worked like new sense. Thanks Roger

Refrig would not defrost

  • Customer: Robert from Jacksonville FL
  • Difficulty: Really easy

  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

Diagnosis: used wiring diagram attached to frig and determined cause could be wiring, heater element, thermostat or timer. After completely defrosting the frig (turned it off) I removed the rear cover in the freezer and looked for an obvious problem. None seen. Removed temperature select pod from the frig box and looked for obvious problems. None seen but defrost timer appeared poorly made. Repair: Since I had no practical way of checking the defrost cycle in operation, I checked probable failures on the Part Select website and saw defrost timer as most probable. I ordered the timer. Installed it. Waited a few days to make sure the frig went through a few defrost cycles then removed the freezer rear cover. There was no excessive frost buildup so I'm reasonably sure the repair was successful.
