Refrigerator was freezing up and not cooling fresh food compartment

The repair was easy, I removed the cover on the top front of the fresh food compartment. It housed the defrost timer which was easy to identify and replace. Just removed a screw, unplugged the wires and replaced with the new part. Unfortunately, that wasn't the only problem. I also had to replace the defrost element that the timer sent power to. While I was at it, I replaced the defroster thermostat. The entire repair took under an hour, diagnosing the problem took the most time and effort.

I found that frost was accumilating in the freezer

Ordered a defrost timer kit and a Bimetal defrost thermostat clip. I matched the wires but first I unplugged the frig.I cut the two wires on the Bimetal defrost and added the two connectors. All's well that ends well.Problem solved.

Refrigeration section not cooling

I replaced the defrost timer. Not very difficult. At first, the new part did not make a difference. After about 48 hours, the temp in the refrig section began to drop. It got down to 30 degrees so I raised the temp. I also put more items in the refrig and after a few hours, the temp rose to 40 degrees and I have not been able to get the temp off that number. Any suggestions?

Noisy defrost timer

Part # had been replaced with another timer. Original timer had 2 wires coming out of it. Replacement only had 1 wire. Instructions showed 2 options for where to place the wire. I chose option 2 and I guess I was right. Installation took less than 15 minutes and refridge is back to normal. (Quiet)
