In Topic: Kitchenaid gas range KGST307HBS4 How do you remove oven door?

Ahhh, good to know! I'll report back when I get a chance to finish the job. Thanks!

In Topic: Frigidaire refrig FPHI1887KF1 weird thing on defrost timer

23 July 2014 - 04:08 PM

Got over to the customer's house today to install the new 'garage kit', figured I'd post a pic to show the correct way to install it. Instructions were included with the new part. It's very easy to install--take out the control panel from the refrig section, remove the defrost timer, peel the adhesive off the back of the garage kit and stick it to the area on the control panel beneath the defrost timer mounting holes. The part has holes cut out, so lining it up is very easy. The 2 wires from the kit have terminals the cold control plugs into, then the wiring plugs into the cold control. Thanks for all the info, everyone!

P.S. I took the pic before finishing the job, naturally you'll have to re-install the defrost timer and wiring to cold control--forgot to take a 'finished' pic!  :wink:

Budget, you're absolutely right! I was thinking the same thing, it just didn't look right to me. I kept thinking, "why would they design this thing to be wrapped around the defrost timer?" Now I know why it didn't look right! It wasn't!  :blinky:

Interesting! So you wrap it over the top of the defrost timer? I've never seen one of those before, very good to know about! Are there similar kits for non-Frigidaire refrigerators too?

Thanks for the part number, gonna order one up tomorrow!

Thanks for the responses, everyone! I'm going to try dish soap on the threads and tightening the screws before attempting to remove them. I'm actually looking forward to my next oven repair, now! :biggrin:
