The entire inside panel frost over and when i removed the panel screws i could see the fan was froze in a block of ice also the condenser was packed with it. I bought the defrost timer to fix the problem, since that sounded like the solution to the problem. Now i can't find where that part goes? There's nothing that looks like it behind that interior panel. Did i get the wrong part or does it go somewhere else?

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 Switch broke
An easy job for smaller hands. Removed the two bolts holding the light cover. Removed two electrical connections from the old switch by pinching the retaining clip,removed the switch, snapped in the new one and re-attached the connectors. Your online illustrations helped me to know that the plastic housing for the light switch would only swing down so far and was not intended to be removed. Saved me from breaking that plastic cover's tabs. This home repair saved me more than 5 times the cost of hiring a professional to do it. Very happy homeowner.
