Fridge & Freezer not cold enough
Before I replaced the defrost timer & temperature cold control thermostat, I 1st replaced the high % parts that go bad (defrost thermostat & run capacitor) -no luck, so I decided to replace the (2) remaining parts that typically go bad -defrost timer & temperature cold control thermostat. I noticed my model number did not come up exact to the models on the site here, but all of the parts I ordered were almost identical to the ones replaced. This is an easy repair: disconnect power, remove items from the fridge and the top shelf. remove the plastic cover that houses the light, thermostat, and timer -there are (4) small screws that you can easily remove with a small socket driver. Once the screws are removed, the unit will hang down and you can unplug the main wiring harness to remove the whole cover and its contents from the fridge. The back of the cover fits snug to the underside of the freezer (this is where the cold air for the fridge comes from). The thermostat sits in a housing w/ (3) electrical wire connectors that need to be unplugged, along with the thermostat control knob. Once these are all disconnected, the thermostat can come out of the housing, along with the integral wire that runs along the housing towards the back of the cover. You will also need to gently remove the small piece of insulation in the back of the cover to properly remove and install the new thermostat wire. There was a plastic sleeve on my old thermostat wire, I simply slid this off and put over the new wire. Put the new thermostat control back in (make sure this is not put in upside down -there is an "off" setting on the dial -you can hear it click once the dial reaches it) and fit the new wire back in along the cover where it was sitting originally along with insulation. Defrost timer is held in place with small screws -simply remove screws and replace with new timer. Plug in the wire harness, reinstall cover, shelf, plug in and turn control dial so fridge will cool off. This make take 12-24 hours.

Freezer cooling wouldn't turn back on, except when you banged on it.
Had the same problem about a year ago. Called a repairman and watched him remove the plastic unit with the light bulb just inside the frig, under the freezer. He removed four screws and unplugged it from the top. Ordered the same part, removed the screws, unplugged it and took out the thermostat from the plastic unit. Then removed the plastic protective tubing from the long wire and placed it on the new parts wire. Snapped everything back into place just as I had taken it apart. Plugged it back in, and reattached it with the four screws. Easy as pie and works great now!

Refrigerator would not come back on once it shut off (as it does regularly) I could turn it to colder and it would run for 30 mins to an hour and then shut off again.
Ordered what parts I suspected might be at fault. Unplugged fridge and removed top shelf and cold cut keeper. Using nut driver, removed four retaining screws, lowered the control housing and unplugged connector. Slid out housing and removed cold control knob and two phillips head screws for timer. Removed temp control from housing and thermal probe from casing. Rethreaded probe through white pliable (rubber?) casing, repositioned in holders and replaced 2 screws for timer, put housing back in place, plugged the connector in and put in the four nut-headed screws. Plugged in the fridge and in about 5minutes...voila. Thanksgiving was saved. Only threw out the milk, eggs and sour cream. All else was fine. thanks guys.
