I replaced the thermostat, temperature sensor, and the run capacitor. . . Refrigerator still not cooling. I checked the start relay and measured the input terminals on the compressor for the correct resistance. . . Everything measured correctly. In a last ditch effort before calling for service, I pulled the main board, inspected it and saw the problem right away. One leg on the compression capacitor had desoldered itself. Got out my soldering iron and applied a good amount of solder to that point. Put everything back together and turn it on. . . Problem fixed. The compressor kicked on right away and started cooling the refrigerator.

Troubleshooting was the most complicated. Once I had assured myself that the defrost timer and thermostat were operating correctly, I defrosted the fridge and removed the heater to find that one of the two heaters had failed. I manually defrosted the fridge until the parts arrived and replacement was easy because the wires, brackets and connector were identical to the original. the multimeter wasn't really necessary. Most of the time required was for defrosting.

Buy new ones and screw them in. The design is seriously flawed, and it is necessary to keep a supply of side rails for replacement.

I did exactly as the video instructed. Removed the top hinge bracket. Removed the door. Replaced the parts on both the door and the freezer, taking care to save and re-install the shims. I put the door back in place and installed the top hinge. I also lubed the hinge pins with very light grease. The door now works perfectly.
