Gordon from Ben Wheeler, TX
Freezer cold, refrigerator warm
Overload relay accessible from back, by compressor unit. Very easy to change out. Diagram from your site placed defrost thermostat in same area.It wasn't. Found another diagram, showed it in refrigerator light area, took that apart, not there. Yet another diagram showed it in the duct work area at back of refrigerator cabinet. Not there. Finally removed back of freezer compartment, found thermistor and thermostat with the fins. Clipped wires, wired in parts, quick fix. Longest amount of time was spent finding the old parts to replace them. Actual replacement took less than 15 minutes. Refrigerator holding at 35 degrees set on 2 now, better than ever. Total cost, less than $120, doing iy ourselves....priceless. Read more...

Installation Instructions
Bill from Andover, MA
Refrigerator too warm, freezer fine
I replaced the Diffuser and the Thermistor (the one in the refrigerator) at the same time. I was not sure what the problem was ahead of time except for the fact that no air was coming in from the freezer section; this is where the air diffuser is. I probably only needed to replace the diffuser.

I turned the circuit breaker for the refrigerator off. There was a small section of plastic covering the wires that run from the top console inside the refrigerator to the back of the refrigerator where the diffuser is. I took this off (one screw) and then the diffuser is connected in the refrigerator side with one screw. To push the diffuser from the freezer, I needed to take off a piece of plastic directing the flow of air from the freezer. I needed to move the ice maker forward a little; it moves forward easily (it sort of clips into place). Once the diffuser was visible from the freezer, I pushed it out or disconnected the four clips holding it in and it came right out. Once this is done, you simply unplug the old and plug in the new and put back in place. This took less than 15 minutes total time. Online diagrams makes ordering parts and fixing easy.

Once the new diffuser was in, I could tell I was golden because I was getting cold air. I guess this piece goes bad from time to time based on others experiences.

Fixes these symptoms
Installation Instructions
Richard from STATEN ISLAND, NY
Refrigerator would ice up around the condenser and through out the air vents. Stopping all air flow in the refrigerator. If you defrosted the refrigerator it would work for about 24 hours then ice up again.
Unplugged and empty refrigerator, completely defrosted refrigerator using a hair dryer to speed up the defrosting, put a lot of towels on the floor to soak up the water when the ice melts. Removed all refrigerator racks and drawers, then remove the white plastic and styrofoam condenser cover. You will then see the thermistor, cut the two small wires connecting the thermistor to the harness leave yourself as mush wire as possible. Splice in the new thermistor and put the refrigerator back together. Read more...
