1. Turn thermostat down to ensure cooling cycle turns on. Open freezer compartment and listen for air flow/fan. If no air flow or fan, but compressor seems to be working, then proceed to next steps. 2. Turn thermostat up to shut off refrigerator cooling cycle. 3. Open freezer and remove wire shelf (if installed). 4. Using nutdriver or socket set, remove screws securing metal panel on the back wall of the freezer interior. 5. Pull metal panel out to expose evaporator fan and evaporator coil. 6. Ensuring area around fan is clear, turn thermostat down to again start cooling cycle and check if fan operates - if not, then fan needs to be replaced. 7. Turn off refrigerator and unplug from electrical outlet. 8. Order replacement fan (unless you happen to keep one in stock). 9. Remove two screws securing fan and fan bracket assembly to back wall of freezer, note wire connections to fan (red, white and green), disconnect wires and remove fan assembly. 10. Gently pull off fan blade, it is a compression fitting. 11. Remove two screws holding back and front fan brackets together and remove fan motor. 12. Remove rubber gasket from front and back of old motor and insert then on the new replacement fan motor (these rubber gaskets align to openings in the fan brackets, thereby holding the motor in place when installed back into the brackets). 13. Reinstall fan brackets onto new motor matching how the old motor was assembled. 14. Press the fan blade onto the new motor shaft. 15. Reinstall fan motor assembly onto back wall of freezer. 16. Reconnect wires to new motor as they were previously connected to old motor. 17. Reinstall back wall metal panel that covers the fan motor assembly and evaporator coil. 18. Reinstall wire shelf (if applicable). 19. Plug refrigerator in and adjust thermostat to normal setting to initiate cooling cycle. 20. Open freezer and listen for fan and airflow, if you hear it operating correctly, then close freezer and refrigerator and confirm temperatures after refrigerator has cycled through one full cooling cycle - adjust thermostat as necessary. 21. Tell your spouse or significant other that for less than fifty dollars you just saved the price of replacing the refrigerator.

The instuctions say take the door off. I didnt find that necessary. Made sure the new gasket would fit. Pulled the old gasket out inline with the door instead of away. The gasket came off like an innertube on a bicycle. Installation of my new gasket was easy. I started on a corner hooking the lip behind the ledge and worked my way around the door. 10 min maybe. That's it

I watched the repair video. My son followed my instructions. He removed the ice-maker. The back panel was frozen, so we chipped and waited for the ice to thaw. There are three wires to remove from the old fan. My son used his cell phone to take a picture of the correct wiring. He used needle nose pliers to get the motor off the bracket. I used hot water to thaw the ice, so we could get the back panel to fit properly. If we weren't waiting for the ice to melt, we could have finished in about a half-hour. I'm 86 years old, and have carpel tunnel. My son is 63. Together, we make a good team.

Ordered new drawer. New drawer seems to be better than factory drawer (slightly thicker). Removed old, removed white handle from old (ran hot water over old to make it less prone to cracking when prying off), pushed old white handle onto new drawer, inserted new drawer, done. New drawer is great; better construction. Thanks.

I would find the fridge warm inside and not running, so I jiggled/turned the temperature knob and the fridge starts working. I come back later and find it warm again. Problem continued to worsen, could not rely on fridge anymore, considered buying a new one ($500+)

I compared my problem to those on this site's problem descriptions. Others had the exact same issue so I felt confident about the fix and ordered a new thermostat. All it took to fix : Unplug fridge, use a 1/4" nut-driver to remove one screw, drop the panel, pull off temp knob, unhook 3 wires, pull out thermostat, remove plastic tube on sensor, replace plastic tube on sensor of new thermostat. Reverse assembly, done in 15 minutes. This is a simple fix, anyone can do it. (Total repair: $74.00)
