I replaced the panel on the door, transferring it from the old to the new door. Then I went to screw the new handle onto the refrigerator. Then I went to Lowes so that I could have 2 matching screws that would fit the handle and door! The Screw kit that I ordered and paid extra for did not have two matching screws in it. One was not appropriate for this model. Fortunately, Lowes had the screws and I completed the task easily. Too bad about the mix up.

My Amana side-by-side fridge (Model: SCD23VW) took a dump the other day. Both sides were very warm. About $150 in new parts fixed the whole shebang.

1st items: overload relay with capacitor

2nd items: Bi-metal Defrost Thermostat and a Defrost Timer Switch

3rd item: Evaporator fan motor

I think it was a combination of things that caused the failure. Heck, all the repairs were super easy and now my fridge is rock solid. The bi-metal defrost thermostat was purchased at a local store. It just had the thermostat and 2 brown wires. Replacing the entire harness is not necessary. I simply cut wires, striped the, and used wire nuts for speedy repair. (Took 4 min)

After disconnecting the electricity. I followed the instructions as indicated in the "HOW TO" article on the website. I used a steel putty knife and pried the light switch out of its retaining hole. I worked the right side the most since this is the side with the retaining clip. After I removed the switch I transferred the two electrical outlets to the new switch and easily snapped it into place. Engaged the electric power and tested the switch.

Thanks to some reviews we found online about replacing gaskets, ours went very smoothly. One person said to soak the gasket in hot water, which we did til it was very soft. Installed like a breeze. Then, the same person said to tape the door closed after installation, we did that too. The gasket looks like it was professionally installed and we have never done it before. Thanks!

Condensor Fan going bad

I knew the repair wasn't difficult. It was a matter of finding the replacement part. Luckily, I found the part via the internet on your site. Lucky for me, there was an installation video!! These videos are worth 1000 bucks!! Never have encountered a site with installation videos before. It gave me complete insight as to how the job was sequenced. I'm a very visual person, so videos are the perfect helper for me. With fewer and fewer affordable local service companies around to fix problems like mine, your site gave me the complete confidence to easily switch out the condensor fan. I completed the repair for about $63.00. Your site ROCKS! Keep up the repair videos because they are awesome and extremely helpful. I felt like your pricing was competitive for this item. Thanks again!!
