After I bought what I thought I needed for the repair. I asked a friend to come over and look at it. He changed the
the light socket and put the same light bulb in and it works great. I am returning the light switch but decided to keep the light bulb.

Getting on the internet was so easy. This was really very simple. Thank you for making what I thought would be a big ordeal into something very simple.

At this time of the year our beach fridge is always full of food and drinks. Every time we want something it meant leaving the door open for extended time whlie moving things left, right and center. When the new shelf arrived I removed the food and drinks from the existing two shelves and moved them closer together. I then slipped in the new shelf and reloaded the food. Suffice to say the fridge stays open less and we are able to get at things without moving others. I wish I had thought to do this before.

I removed the shield over the timer and the part that supported the timer. Just unpluged it and pluged in new timer and put back shield. I had already replaced the defrost heaters which had totally burned up. I also replaced the thermostat while I was making the repairs although the old one was still o.k. All the information that I needed to make the repairs I obtained through your website. After looking at several websites to compare prices-etc, I found yours to be the best overall. Thanks-a-million your website is worth it's weight in Cold Food !

Removed plastic covers and used a nut driver to remove the two screws that held the heater assembly to the freezer coils, disconnected wires from old assembly, connected wires to new assembly, replaced mounting screws and replaced plastic covers and secured them with the original screws. All in all, a fairly easy operation.

The fan was the correct part. It arrived one day after my well trained son-in-law had left for Texas. I had to install the motor myself. He had trained me well; it was not hard. the most difficult was getting the two tabs on the fan housing to fit back into the frame of the refrigerator where they belonged. Thanks. the part & delivery were overpriced, but I needed seed and convenience. Thanks for getting it right the first time.

After looking at our broken bottom shelf in the fridge many times a day for over a year, I finally got around to doing something about it. So glad that I did! First of all, the part was shipped amazingly quickly. I had it within two days (at regular shipping). Secondly, it was a cinch to install. What a world of difference!
The only caveat is that the new shelf fits quite snugly. If you don't give the refrigerator door an extra push to close it, the door does not seal. Just a new habit we have to get into.

refrigerator wasn't cooling but the freezer was working properly

  • Customer: Don from BELLVILLE, TX
  • Difficulty: Very Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

From instructions found on the site I was directed to the defrost timer part being bad. And from the information others posted that have had the same problem I was able to replace that part by removing the bottom grill just below the door and on the left side was the part. Removing one screw to remove the bracket from the frame and then another screw to remove the part from the bracket. I found it easier to remove the part from the bracket before I pulled the part out so I would have more room to unplug the connector. Just reverse the steps to replace the new part. It took about a day or so for the refrigerator to get to the proper temp.
