Thank you for your question. Removing some parts can be a little tricky sometimes. The thermostat sensor clips on to the air diffuser in the top left corner of the fridge. Release the sensor from the diffuser (# 12 in picture) and the sensor will be free. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further.

Thank you for your question.

I will be happy to assist you. The control has two hidden screws that need to be removed. To access the two hidden screws you have to remove the knobs first. Then remove the faceplate at the front of the control. Once it is removed, the two screws are visible. I have found a video that shows how to access the control. Click here to watch the video.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Can you tell me how to remove the control cover. I unscrewed all the screws but I still can't seem to get it free. Thanks

A:

Chris, look at the parts diagram for the control panel and you will see an arm going back to the air diffuser that connects to an arm in the control panel. The push nut that you need to remove is item 24 in the parts diagram. If the control panel is still attached to the roof of the refrigerator, there is probably a screw still holding it.

Thanks, Jimmy! I found a video that showed me how to remove the clips with a putty knife. Now I am having trouble removing the sensor wire from the old thermometer. Is it attached somehow?

A:

If anyone else is attempting this, you need to remove two other panels to completely remove and replace the sensor wire. The next problem is, they have replaced the original thermostat with a new one with different specs. the screws that held the old thermostat in place will not hold the new one. You are going to actually going to need a couple of new nuts and bolts. It would be nice if they mentioned these issues, but I don't think the aim here is actually to get you through the repair.
