The repair was straightfoward. The evaporator motor I received from partselect was a different model with different wiring configurations. I cut the wires from the new motor per the instructions I received with the new motor and I did the same with the wires that connect to the fridge. Once I matched the wires and secured them with electrical caps I began to put the evaporator motor to the base and started screwing the screws the way I took them off. Once I connected the wire harness to the back of the freezer and turned it on I noticed a big difference in air flow. I was surprised at how easy it was to fix my refrigirator problem. It's been a few weeks now and the fridge is cold and working like it should. Don't be afraid of this task. it's very easy and will save you a ton of money. Thanks partselect.

Cleaned the surfaces,installed the new handle...WaLa! Could not have been easier. Plus the new handle arrived in 2-3 days. AND was less than 1/2 the price of ordering through Sears Parts. I would use PartsSelect again in a heartbeat! Thank you for your great customer service.

I went on partselect put in make and model number, a list showed the probable cause. I watched the how to video. When I received the part in short order I loosened 2 screws disconnected the wiring plug (sprayed it with contact cleaner) pluged it in, removed screws from old part put them in new one. Put timer back in its location and tightened the screws. Very eazy, works fine.

I pick up very fast at these kind of small jobs but because of my very busy schedule I decided to call (2 times) technicians about my problem but none of them had any idea. About my repair, I removed the grill at the bottom of the refrigerator, unscrew a small plate (located on the bottom left side) that's holding the defrost timer. I plug on the new part, screw back the plate with the defrost timer and that was it. Don't forget to turn clockwise with your finger the timer until you hear a "click" and then turn it slightly more to the right. There is also a video on U-tube.

Freezer side cold, Refrigerator side too warm.

Removed bottom grill, removed two screws on left side and removed timer, unplugged it and plugged in new timer and reinstalled. Less than 10 mins. The Thermostat is in the freezer section behind the back panel. Removed all contents, removed shelving, removed 5 nut screws, and removed panel. Thermostat was clamped to top of coil assembly and was very easy to unplug and remove. New thermostat had a clamp built into it and was very easy to plug in and reinstall to the freezer coil. About 15 mins. This is an easy job for anyone who has any mechanical ability at all.
