I ordered a temp. Control valve to repair my ref. What it does is over freezes in the freezer and freezes in the ref. Would this fix my problem
For model number GTS18EBMBRWW
Hi Corki, Thank you for the question. The temperature control is one of the common parts to be replaced with this issue. You can also check to see if there is frost build up from the appliance not defrosting. You can check the defrost heater, thermostat and defrost control as well. Hope this helps!

My unit cools at first when first plugged in but then stops working after 1-2 hours and gets warm both fridge and freezer. Would a temperature cold control replacement be in order?
For model number CTX18LYZNRWH
Hi Joe, Thank you for your inquiry. If both the refrigerator and the freezer are too warm then you will need to replace the temperature control. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Compressor is not running , fan is working fine ...capacitor reads 12 mfd thinking its the overload protector gone out
For model number HTH16BBXYLWW
Hello Doug, Thank you for the question. I suggest testing the capacitor, Part Number: PS11764031. When testing the Capacitor, It should move the needle then drop to 0. Hope this helps, good luck with this repair!

My fresh food compartment tends to run cold, causing some freezing down below. There is a sensor down by the coils, and I wonder if I did not shift it out of position when cleaning the coils, and could this be a possible cause of the problem,that is, if it could even be moved at all. Also, I'm guessing there must be a temperature control unit, possibly working with the on/off/temp setting rotary switch. This is a 1980's fridge with rotary, non-digital freezer and fresh food controls. Are there any suggestions you may have to offer? Thank you, Joe

Hi Joe, Thank you for your question. If the refrigerator is too cold, there are some parts that you will need to check to see which one is causing the issue. You will need to check the cold control thermostat and the defrost thermostat. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

    The unit cycles but does not achieve proper temperature
    Remove power from the unit. With short length #2 Phillips loosen and remove the two(2) screws on the control panel located center top of the refrigeration area. Slide the control panel back about 1/2 inch and allow it to dangle from its wiring harness. Pinch the locking tab on the harness connector with one hand and use the other hand to separate the two sides. A little force is required. Remove the control panel from the refrigerator and shut the refrigerator door. Examine and note the routing of the temperature probe (Silver colored flexible wire) take a picture for later reference. Remove the old and replace with new unit. route temperature probe like the replaced unit. Reverse the steps and reinstall the control panel. It is a good idea to also purchase and replace the defrost timer.

    The refrigerator would not stop running, resulting in frozen food in the refrigerator compartment.
    After reading the trouble shooting section of the owners manual, I determined, without much difficulty, that the temp control was defective. I checked some local outlets and found the prices running from $36.00 and up. The same part from this site was around $20.00. Guess where I bought mine! It arrived in a timely fashion, and I installed it with no problem, in about 10 - 15 minutes. This was a very easy job, just remove and replace three wires snap the unit into place, and screw the cover on. Tip: I always use you tube or another source to get some instruction, just in case I'm not as smart as I think I am!

    Compressor would randomly not turn on. Fridge too warm sometimes.
    Replace temperature control. That fixed it. Also, removed plastic bag obstructing air vent in freezer which added performance. Fridge works good now.
