I loosened(but did not remove) the 1/4" sheetmetal screws around the perimeter of the door liner. (they are numerous and they are hidden in the fold of the gasket) I removed the old gasket. With the screws still loose, I installed the new gasket. After insallation I re-tightened the liner screws. Several gaps were noted and eliminated by gently heating the gasket with a hair dryer. (be patient , it takes some time)

I got the product very quickly. (thank you) Looked at online instructions that were quite vague. Pulled plug.Removed the holder for the fan motor slid it out to see what I had. Removed the mounting screws (3) and slid the motor an fan blade out. I made a cut between the wires and marked the "top" wire to motor to be sure to spin in right direction. Removing fan blade hold down clamp was NOT explained at all but I noted that the shaft on the motor was threaded, so I used pliars and held the shaft white un-screwing clamp. I cleaned the fan blades with degreaser and scraped edges of opening on holder opening. Make sure to use ALL the NEW parts included with this kit when re-installing. They send them for a reason. When slpicing and connecting wires it is a 50/50 shot if you don't mark before cutting. You can connect and try plugging fridge back for moment and make sure it is blowing OUT. Put everything back together and after turning DOWN the thermostats twice, fridge is back to usual. Ice maker is cranking out ice and outside case is cool to the touch.

Note: This can be a DIRTY job especially with 4 dogs in house. Fir and grease don't mix well

It's self-explanatory. The procedure is obvious; it's just a little difficult. The only hard part is attaching the mounting brackets to the fan. If you can't tighten the mounting bolts, loosen them and reposition the brackets. You might end up mispositioning them at first, because they are hard to reach.

Used information on internet as to how to check and repair unit. Due to high cost to have repair come to let me know it was broken, being handy with repairs, I took it upon myself to check the timer and therm, ordered the parts from this site , got them within 5 days, took about 40 minutes to use simple tools to remove and replace the timer and therm, used hair dryer to defrost coil unit and turned unit on, lit has been working well since then, about 2 weeks since repair. Saved lots on repair/labor cost and parts cost. Well satisfied, will use this product company again. I WAS AMAZED HOW EASY REPAIR WAS, WIFE HAPPY NOW!

Removed panel and motor cover at rear of freezer compartment. This requires 1/4" nut driver. Removed motor assembly bracket and wiring, careful to note where ground, neutral and hot were attached. The entire assembly must be removed from the freezer compartment in order to swap new motor for old motor. Re-inserted assembly into freezer compartment, reattached wiring. Made sure all assembly screws were tightly fastened and wiring was correct. Re-attached panel cover and motor cover. I did note that a few of the 1/4" machine screws wobbled in the original holes; I used slightly larger, 5/16" head machine screws of identical length as replacements. New motor is much quieter. No longer sounds like a truck is idling in our home.

Location of the run capacitor was not as the video described.

It was easy after it was apparent that the run capacitor was plugged into the compressor. This was determined from a parts diagram of the actual model refrigerator. The part was the same but the location on the video was wrong. A large screwdriver was used to unplug the capacitor from the compressor. The temperature range of the refrigerator is still too wide but it's colder.

kickplate grill was broken in several places and one retaining clip was broken

retaining clips had to installed on back of grill and the fit being so tight and the grill being constructed as to be fragile that any slight twisting of it snapped the joints between the frame of the grille and slats of the grille. So, although my new grille wasn't in pieces it went on damaged. If the grille is ever removed we must remember to remove clip pressure with hands only from under and back of grille. To just remove grille from front with some sort of prying tool will damage or destroy the entire grille. The grille is not made heavy enough and the clips are way to heavy for application

The fridge was running constantly. O

Once I removed the contents of the freezer I found ice on the inside back panel Removing the panel I found ice on the cooling coils and the defrost thermostat was bulged out where the wires were attached.I removed the panel with the nutdriver as shown in the video. I removed the ice maker connection and removed the panel from the freezer section. I then had to manually defrost the area with a heat gun. The ice had actually covered the Defrost Thermostat - which was bulging where the wires were attached.. The defrosting took the majority of the repair time - the actual Defrost Thermostat replacement only took about 20 minutes once I could get to it. I spliced the wire with a crimping tool as discussed in the video. Once all was defrosted I reversed the operation.Overall, a very simple part change out. The video was extremely helpful - if nothing else to mentally prepare me for the task.

Talked to a bud who does this kind of work and he walked me thru the simple job. Also watched a you tube segment. Very easy job. Took off the front kick vent panel. Unscrewed the metal holder and unplugged old part, plugged new part in and put panel back on. Turned on unit and it is working like a charm. Got my fingers crossed just in case.
