    The compressor would start/stop intermittently at times.
    Removed heavy items in refrigerator, protected wood floor with rosin paper, rolled out refrigerator. Unplug the refrigerator. Removed the fan and unplugged it, replaced the capacitor located behind fan (discharged it first using a resistor and wire leads), removed the plastic relay cover off the side of compressor (was tough since it is located in a tight space), unplugged and replaced the relay. To reinstall the plastic cover, I cut a couple small slits in the sides of the plastic cover so it would easily slide down. Reconnected all wires, reinstalled the fan. Plugged in and rolled back into the wall. Was an easy job except getting the plastic cover out. So far the refrigerator is working good!

    1) Run Capacitor. Disconnected electrical power plug from the wall socket. Located the Run Capacitor in bottom rear of refrigerator, disconnected the retainer spring, pulled the wasted run capacitor off and plugged the new one into the slot and replaced the retainer spring. 2) Motor AC/DC Evaporator Fan. Opened top freezer door. Removed the shelving by carefully sliding the shelving pins upward and into the recessed slots for easy removal. Used Phillip's head screw driver to remove two screws holding the face guard in place and the 6" Crescent wrench to remove the bracket holding the fan motor to the bracket and the Phillip's head screw driver to remove two screws holding the bracket to the inside rear of the freezer. Unplugged the wasted motor AC/DC Evaporator Fan and plugged the new one into its place. Reinstalled all hardware as it came out. Refrigerator is now working like new. Simple and easy project saved me $100s of dollars fro having to purchase a new Refrigerator. My significant other was happy that it worked so well and saved $$. She was happy and went to Walmart shopping with the savings and brought me a pizza home. Everyone was a winner. Paul and Kimberly Juliana

    Neither the freezer or refridgerator keeping temperature
    First I found the closest model number to our unit. After it brought up the parts and possible problems I started checking out what mine was doing. The freezer was all frozen at the back which meant the defrost timer was not kicking on the defrost cycle and letting the coils freeze up and not letting anything work properly. I changed the defrost timer and manually melted the ice off the coils and everything started working great. I did buy a run capacitor to help the compressor kick on just in case it needed it. I spent $65.00 on the whole repair. I recommend watching the video's on this site. I was very happy with this site as they saved me a bunch as we were going to start looking for a new refridgerator but now we don't need to. Tom...........

    My refrigerator/freezer stopped functioning.
    The ice maker/water dispenser also stopped functioning. Replacing the main control board was very easy. I simply removed the back cover, disconnected the wiring harness, pulled the board off, then installed the new control board and reconnected the wiring. The run capacitor was located in a hard to reach area. It took a little time, with a small socket, to remove the one screw that holds it in place. Everything is functioning perfectly now. Thanks.

    Fridge kept clicking and not powering on fully
    Fridge whined semi-loudly for the last five years. Finally, I came home to the fridge clicking over and over (every 2 seconds or so it would click). Upon opening the door I noticed it was warm inside and the clicking was the unit actually 'shorting out' and attempting to restart itself over and over. I purchased the run capacitor, the overload switch, and the new motherboard. It took literally 2 minutes to install since I had the covers off and bad parts already removed. Once I buttoned it back up it ran perfectly and does not even hum or whine anymore. ~$200 in parts and a little time for troubleshooting saved me over a thousand dollars in replacement costs - YaY!
