Periodically the refrigerator side would warm up

Called a repair man and he explained that someone had failed to properly close the freezer door, which caused the coil to freeze up...Charged me 75.00 for a service call, thawed out the coil and left... The next 2 times this occurred, I thawed out the coil and then determined that there must be something else. Did a web search and determined that it must be the defrost timer. Ordered the part, watched the excellent installation video and cured the problem.... The whole deal was terrific... Thanks.

Freezer coil frosting, buzzing noise in fresh food area

I followed the excellent video instructions to replace the defrost timer. It went faster and easier than I would have expected. In just less than a half-hour the job was done. I saved a ton of money doing it myself.

Freezer too cold and frig not cold enough

Repair is very simple however the design of the cover that you have to remove is not very user friendly, have to push in the tabs in the back and pull the cover at the same time, then remove 4 screws. Connecting the timer is a bit tricky, it helps to remember how it looks like before you disconnect the old one. It has been one week and the frige is working fine.

Refrigerator not cooling, heavy frost build-up in freezer compartment

First I unplugged the refrigerator.
Then removed the outer plastic cover inside the refrigerator compartment...it just snaps in & out.
Used a nutdriver to remove screws from the inner cover & let that just hang down.
Located the Adaptive Defrost Timer & unplugged the wiring harness.
Removed the old Adaptive Defrost Timer & replaced it with the new one.
Reassembled everything in reverse order as stated above.
Then I plugged the refrigerator back in & set the control setting to the coldest settings.
The freezer side was cooling down much quicker than the refrigerator compartment, but after a couple of hours, everything was working very well.
Note: The freezer compartment needs to be totally defrosted
sometime before or after this repair is made, which can take a whole day or better!
