Fridge would not stay cold

The appliance is relatively old. Sears estimated the cost around $300 dollars after diagnosing a thermostat problem. Looked online for model and part number and found Partselect.com. Good reputation on BBB. Site was very easy to use, good customer service and quick delivery.

Replacement was easy. Temp control and timer located inside the appliance. Removed temp knob, plastic cover, light bulb and 1 screw to dislodge housing and unplug power. 4 screws to remove temp control unit and timer from metal housing. Took images before disconnecting connectors.

Replaced parts, plugged power and re-screwed onto housing. Put back the housing, bulb, plastic cover and knob.

Plugged in the appliance and turn on the temp control. NOTE: defrost timer needs to be adjusted with flathead to enable the appliance. Once the timer was enabled, unit is functioning normally.

Saved myself $200.
