Thanks for the help on this forum. I finally received the diffuser and thermistor and installed two days ago.

To anyone with this type Kenmore fridge (Whirlpool) and this type problem it is not an enormous task. However had I not followed the good advice here, I would have broken something. The part has tabs on the freezer side. To get to it easily, as I was advized, the freezer duct must be dropped and the upper freezer light needed to be removed. The duct must be pulled loose from the diffuser in the freezer. Then with a putty knife, the tabs can be moved enough to release the unit where it can be pulled back into the fridge side. Took less than an hour start to finish. Probably saved myself a ton of money in the process.

Just remember, once you warm a fridge up to room temperature, and then start filling it back up with food, it will take a couple of days to get the termperature on the fridge side to really agree with the digital thermostat.

I'm guessing to gain energy efficiency, they use a smaller compressor with more run time and maybe a bit less air flow. However 36 hours later, all seems to be fine.

This is a great forum. I feel very lucky to have found it.

Now maybe I can attack the small problem I have with the Kenmore dryer.
