Refrigerator freezer would freeze but cold box not very cold
I went on line to find the symptoms for what I was experiencing and went to web and entered the "KSRA" alphas and this list came up. I followed the explanation on video and it was identical. Good stuff.
I watched a couple of videos on your website about how to install a couple of parts that could possibly be causing the problem. Then I went and took the cover off of the area where the ice and water dispenser are in the door. I could tell from watching the videos which parts to look at to see where the problem might be. I figured out which part it was because I could see where it was broken. I then ordered the part. After I received the part I watched the videos again and then did the repair. VOILA! It worked. I put everything back together and the water dispenser was working. I was so pleased that I didn't have to call a repair man and I actually fixed it myself! My husband was so glad too.
Icemaker had started leaking water into ice bin upon filling.
Watched the online video and it looked just too simple.....so when I got the new unit I did not have to even change the wiring harness and I was totally surprised that the change could be so simple and easy! Trick is to follow the video instructions and DO NOT take out the two top screws but just loosen them enough to lift up the old unit and remove it! Cannot believe it could be that simple and easy.
Technically, the repair did not require specialized knowledge. However, replacement of the motor required some effort. Because the motor is located at the bottom of the unit in an area with copper tubing & wiring hindering access it was physically difficult to remove and then replace the motor. A problem arose because the shaft on the replacement motor was larger than the original motor's. Thus the fan would not fit on the new motor. Luckily, I found a fan locally that fit the motor. It would be very helpful if a fan was included in the motor kit. The ref. is now running smoothly
Refrigerator not cooling, compressor not kicking in when thermostat switch turned on and off.
Very simple repair. Followed the video instructions. Simply removed a few screws and nuthead screws. Removed the cover plates. Removed the old thermostat switch. Removed the plastics tubing over the temp sensor probe. Put the plastic tubing on the new sensor probe, ( rubbing a slight amount of vegetable oil on the probe to allow the tube to slide on easier,). Reinstalled the temp probe. Reinstalled the new switch. Connected the wires to the switch. Reinstalled the cover plates and screws. And the job was complete. Almost took me longer to write this out, than it did to complete the project. Hey, it was an easy fix.
Ice mold was leaking causing all the ice to freeze into one chunk.
Got the main bolts off and unplugged and removed the ice maker. Had to remove all parts and rebuild it on the new mold. Was more complex than I thought but was able to get it done. Note where everything was as you take it off and you'll do fine.
Refrigerator door was clicking when opening or shutting.
I removed the top door hinge cover, removed the top hinge, pulled the refrigerator door off, layed it on the floor, removed the door cams, installed the new door cams, replaced the doo and top hinge and hinge cover. If you have this problem with your refrigerator door, be sure to replace the upper and lower cam.
Just remove old one which was really easy since it was practically falling off and replace with new one. It is a bit tricky because you are afraid of breaking the new one. Watch the video and you will be more confident. I was REALLY impressed with the shipping. I ordered on Monday afternoon and when I returned home Tuesday afternoon it was waiting for me on my porch , and this was the week between Christmas and New Year when everyone was fussing about not receiving packages. NOT ME!
