My husband removed the old hinge, by taking out the old screws and the old hinge and attached the new one, by inserting the new hinge and the new screws. It was as easy as 123.

Took out the screws(8mm). Used pliers to close new hinges. Re-installed the screws with as large washers as would fit(to hopefully prevent the hinges from cracking at the screw holes like the originals did). I like this supplier, part was easy to find, correct part, shipped fast, price was good.

Defrosted freezer, hose broke due to dry-rot. Used towels to let water drain into pan. Now with the plug minimal frost build-up. No ice at all. Now if I could get a new hose to drain the water that would be great.

Unplugged the freezer. Located the Run Capacitor (next to the compressor). Removed the wire holding bracket, removed the Run Capacitor from the Start Relay. Installed the NEW Capacitor, re-installed the holding bracket. Plugged the unit in, looking at the display for the proper start-up sequence data. All is good - freezer operating for another 10+ yrs. NOTE: When removing the Run Capacitor, beware the COMPRESSOR could be HOT to the touch.

When I received the new gasket I took a blow dryer to it and straightened out the warped areas prior to removing the old gasket. I then looked for a tool to remove the pins holding the gasket in place. I found a butter knife worked the best to get underneath and pry them out. Since this is a chest freezer, the pins in the back of the door were very hard to remove and one of them even broke off as I was removing it. Of course I had no spare pins when I went to put the new gasket in place. The new gasket slid right on and the pins snapped into place with a little bit of HARD pressure. My advice is to make sure that you do the back of the door first, since it is hard to line up the holes and the pins otherwise. It would not have been a difficult repair if not for the pins giving me trouble. There are no instructions sent showing how to do any of this work, so if you are not knowledgeable about gaskets this repair could be a difficult one. Maybe the company could include some basic instructions as a help to their customers.

I replaced the thermostat. (Note: On a chest freezer, there is a copper tube going up into the wall of the freezer. The capillary of the thermostat goes into this tube.) 1. Unplug freezer. 2. Remove temperature knob. 3. Remove screws and remove cover plate. 4. Unclip old thermostat. 5. Using pliers, gently pull down the rubber seal on the capillary where it enters the copper tube. 6. Pull capillary out of copper tube. (In my case, the capillary was not free to pull out. I had to grasp the capillary with pliers and tug hard.) 7. Place rubber seal over the new capillary. 8. Insert the new capillary into the copper tube and put the rubber seal over the end of the copper tube. 9. Install thermostat body in the cover plate using the clip on the thermostat body. 10. Replace cover plate and temperature knob.
