Video made troubleshooting problem easy. I ordered the parts and 5 days later I had them. 10 minutes later they were installed and that night I had ice. This is the third appliance I have repaired using the partsselect video and replacement parts. All worked well. Much cheaper than getting a technician. Thank you. Cheap Guy!

Unplugged refrigerator and removed back cover to expose the compressor and timer/relay assembly. I removed a retainer clip with needle nose pliers, unplugged and removed harness to relay followed by removing the timer/relay assembly together from the compressor. I used the screw driver to pry off very gently. Once removed, the new timer/relay was installed followed by the harness, retainer clip and back cover. The refrigerator was plugged in and my Gladiator man cave fridge was brought back to life.

Easy fix. Used this a teaching opportunity for my 18 yr old son and had him do all the work. The cams have like little inclines that as the meet close the door with like a over center effect. Empty the door. Just undo the top plate 5/16 screws and lift door off. On bottom of door change the 1 piece lower door closing cam and on the bottom post plate change the door cam. add a little grease and reverse the process to install. later in life my son will know how to make this repair.....easy to do folks.

Watched video instruction. Looked at online diagram. Removed back cover. Replaced two parts purchased from Partselect.com. Great website, fast service, excellent price! Almost purchased a new refrigerator, but decided to try this first! Happily....working perfectly and spent less than $100 (and saved $1,500 by not purchasing a new refrigerator)!
