My problem
Refrigerator Intermittently not getting cold for several hours and then once it gets unplug then it comes back to normal. This happens 3-10 times a year and this happens soon after factory warranty expires. Sometimes it frig works and sometimes it fails

My Repair & Advice:

Disconnect power in the back of the frig, open frig door. Locate temperature sensor where to adjust temperature settings. You will need to unscrew the two hex bolts in the top where temperature control located at (next to light bulb). Then use small flat bade to lift open front temperature panel where there are two bolts in there and you will need to open with hex driver. From there the panel should drop down where you can unhook 4 connectors then connect it back on with new replacement controller. Afterward conduct reverse process to put screws and panels back in. Should be easy 30 minutes job

My problem
Defrost circuit burned out on the control board. Was running on a weak power source during Hurricane Sandy and the control board started stinking, then the generator started surging. The light for the water filter started blinking rapidly.

My Repair & Advice:

On this refrigerator the control board is mounted inside a compartment at the top-front of the non-frozen side. There are 2 hex screws to remove behind the compartment on the ceiling. The compartment then can be slid toward you to unhook. There is a mechanical control connection on the left that I left connected while replacing the board which is on the far right. There are 2 screws underneath the compartment holding the board in. There are 4 sets of wires plugged into the board, three with press releases. I swapped them to the new board one at a time, but I think each has a unique plug. The largest connector had no release but was on quite tightly. The side of the board with the red plastic piece has the holes for mounting with the screws. It's been a few weeks now and everything seems to be working fine.
