The refridgerator will not run

After the front panel was removed, disconnected the timer and installed new in reverse order. The provided instructions could be more straight forward, I spent more time reading it than the installation itself.

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)
