I have replaced the thermometer and the timer and it stays cold for several days then starts loosing its coldness again and goes from 10 to 30 degrees even since we replaced both parts. What is happening?

Hi Rae Lynn, thank you for your question. When you are having temperature problems in your appliance, there are a few parts that could cause the issue. You can use a multi meter to test most of the parts. Make sure you cut power to your appliance before doing any repairs or tests. First you should test your defrost thermostat. Place the thermostat in ice cold water for 2-3 minutes after removing it from your appliance. It should be reading 0 ohms to be working correctly. Another part to check would be your defrost heater. Remove it from the appliance. It should be reading anywhere between 0 - 50 ohms to be working. If both of those parts are fine you may need to take a look at your evaporator fan motor for being the issue. It could be that it is not circulating the air. Good luck with your repair.

Bottom of freezer is covered in solid sheet of ice. I’ve thawed all ice and lines but within days it is back again. Getting frost on packages in there also.

Hi Ella, Thank you for your question. If there is ice frozen on the bottom of the freezer floor, the drain tube is likely clogged with debris and it will need to be cleaned out. If you have any questions, please let us know. We are open 7 days a week. We look forward to hearing from you!

Lights inside refrigerator not working
I used a flat-head screwdriver to pop out the old light rocker switch. Then, I unplugged the wires, plugged them into the new light rocker switch, and then popped the new switch into the hole. That's it! Lights began working again.

Froze over fan motor burnt out
Removed shelves from inside freezer then removed 4 screws holding cover panel. Pulled panel up and slightly pulled forward to remove. Removed wiring connections then removed two screws that held the motor & fan assembly. Removed the support bracket from the old motor and installed same on the support bracket. Reversed removal procedures for installation. Cover panel is a little bit of a problem when trying to reinstall. Put in panel as high as you can and then slide down. You must then exert a little pressure on the bottom portion to get it to seat correctly. Install four remaing screws and you are done. I had this repaired previously by a professional repairman and noticed from the pictures you folks provided that he had installed the screws on the support bracket incorrectly. That was the reason for the fan blade to rip apart.

Light Would Not Go On In The Refrigerator
First I removed the old lightbulb from the socket and replaced it with a new one to confirm that the bulb was not the problem. I then pryed the socket out with a flat-head screwdriver. I could tell that the socket was anchored in its hole with clips so it was relatively easy to pry it out. Once the socket was out, I disconnected the lead wires and ordered a replacement socket kit from Partselect. When the new one arrived, I reconnected the lead wires to it, snapped it back into its hole, screwed in a new lightbulb, and presto!! The light was back on with no further problem. Thank you, Partselect!! A $15.00 part saved me what probably would have been at least a $100. service call and heaven knows what the technician would have told me I needed!!!
