The repair was super-easy. The shelf bar just snaps in and the drawer slide required one screw to be removed and driven back. It took all of about five minutes to tackle both. I wish I would have done this sooner.

snapped the wires from frig onto the proper prong and viola,it works. The proper prong is identified by the size because there are two prongs with the wires and two connecting prongs in the socket. I talked to a very helpful representative and she gave me the number for Frigidaire, when I was confused by the placement of the wire. Wish I had remembered her name to share with you. As it turned out I didn't need to call Frigidaire.

The instructions given to me by part Select were very good.I replaced the Timer- checked the heater with oham meter it was good- checked the door weather striping it was good and replaced the thermostat with new .So at this point I may need to call a professional unless some one has another solution.

Fridge quit working.

A little research told me the hum plus no cooling was either the compressor or the relay. I ordered the new relay and put it in but it didn't fix the problem. I ended up having to buy a new fridge, but it was worth the $30 gamble to see if I could fix it on the cheap and it saved me the money a service call would've cost. Pretty easy installation, just in a tight space on my model.

I just unscrew the broken support rail and replace it with the new one. I didn't need the left side rail but also replace it. It was very easy to do it. The new parts I order came on time, no problem at all. Thanks for you reliable internet services. E. Lopez
