I've run into that 2 times. The second time it happened I forgot what to do and there was no manual available. I was on the job but able to log on to Appliantology. There was an old thread where a master explained what needed to be done. It jogged my memory and I quickly removed the panels. This master's posts has helped me on several occasions but this one was special as I had an entire family watching the repair.
I got a rare chance to thank, in person, the master whose info helped me. I took him out for drinks, made him dinner and even let him sleep with my wife. Either you've guessed it by now or you think I'm a nut (or both) but the fact is that master was me!
There is so much information to remember as an appliance technician. One of the great things about this site is you can use it to record interesting and challenging repairs. I encourage you to not only ask and respond to questions here but also post repair procedures that you believe may be helpful to others as well as your future self.
Appliantology is, however appliances are not, an exact science for I know there are a few refrigerators that actually hate me.
