Need Manual: Amana 25 SXD25JBL Refrigerator

2 posts in this topic

The manual should help with the following, but I'll mention:

Specifically, I'm trying to replace the controller and can't tell how to get the housing out of the way without breaking it. (It's a side by side with the two-knobbed control housing at the upper left of the frig--which is on the right side.) I see plastic tabs at the bottom of the housing that reach through holes in the back of the interior wall, but can't figure out how to get them loose; pulling the unit out etc. would be a major pain here. Also can't tell how to get the thermostat wire out of its plastic tube running into the freezer. Will ask at the parts place Friday but will also cross post this (hoping that's okay) on the thread with which I began.

Thanks, Samurai and followers. This is a great site and I've been spreading the news to friends. As I hope to pick up the magic part tomorrow in Denver (rather than wait the weekend for part by mail), I will donate extra beer money once I git'er done.
