Fresh food compartment warm -- freezer ok

Removed the one and only screw inserted vertically up to hold the control console to the top of the fresh food compartment. Disconnected the electrical connectors ( two ) and laid console on work bench. Studied the temperature control installation first, then removed wire connections. Installed the new control same as old one, and reinstalled the console in the fresh food compartment of the refrigerator. Service from Part Select was excellent ! Great diagrams, pictures, etc. Great help to locating part ! Ordered part, and bam, here it was in few days ! Great customer support ! Five stars !

Freezer and refrigerator temperture unstable

My frig was cycling between upper 30's to 60 degrees, the freezer would make ice one day then be melting the next. I started by replacing the CONDENSER FAN MOTOR, relatively easy, unplug the motor, ratchet off the three supporting screws, splice the wires together, attach the ground wire and reinstall. That didn't seem to fix my problem.

I then ordered the Defrost Thermostat and Defrost Timer, based on past advice these were frequently replaced parts. Both installs were easy, the DEFROST TIMER was installed first, one screw holds the housing in the fridge, just unplug and unclip and install the new one. Very easy. This didn't seem to correct the problem overnight. I then installed the DEFROST THERMOSTAT, which was a couple of screws in the back of the freezer and uncip and install the new one. Very easy. This seemed to help the freezer maintain temperature, but the frig was still cycling up and down in temp on a daily basis and I had the temp knob all the way to 7 when it would normally work at 4.

I ordered the TEMPERATURE CONTROL ASSEMBLY. Easy to install, in the same housing as the Defrost timer, unhook some wires, reinstall and run the coiled part toward the back of the housing. This fixed the problem and has maintained my temp in the mid to lower 40's at the setting of 4.
