Thank you for sending the model number of the refrigerator.

When the temperature inside the garage is below freezing for a period of time, the thermostat inside the refrigerator does not turn the compressor on and the refrigerator and freezer warm up. If the temperature goes lower, the food inside the refrigerator will freeze and ruin.

The refrigerator will not work well in an unheated garage. There is no kit for your refrigerator to make it work in an unheated garage. You can buy refrigerators that will operate inside an unheated garage.

Whirlpool makes a refrigerator called the Gladiator that will operate inside an unheated garage. Sears sells the Gladiator refrigerator.

Thanks so much for replying. Is there any way to insulate the thermostat? I've heard that you can purchase garage kits for some refrigerators. Since there's no kit for our refrigerator, could we buy a kit for a similar refrigerator and somhow modify the kit to work on our model? My husband is a mechanic and is very handy with everything around the house. Any suggestions for something we could do to try to keep it working in the garage during the winter would be appreciated.

The garage kits are for top freezer models. Adapting one to work in your side side by side refrigerator would not work very well. I don't recommend you try to adapt the kit to your refrigerator. I wish I could give you better news.

Thank you, Jimmy, for your help. I guess we'll just not use it in the cold winter months.

A:

A couple of points if I may. It would be OK to use the refrigerator section PROVIDED that the ambient temperature in the garage stayed above freezing, the refrigerator compressor will not run very often under these conditons but the refrigerator contents will stay cool. It is because the compressor does not run very often under these circumstances that the freezer section 'defrosts' The running of the compressor is controlled by a thermostat in the refrigerator compartement and as the compressor does not run very often it will not keep the freezer below freezing.

I appreciate your input. Do you know of any way to maybe insulate the thermostat? If it's possible, do you think it would help?

A:

Insulating the thermostat, even if possible, will not have the desired effect. What will happen as the temperature in the refrigerator rises the thermostat will be insulated and will be slower than the refrigerator in reaching the 'set' temperature this will delay the starting of the compressor and thus the temperature in the refrigerator will rise above that which is desired, perhaps allowing the contents to 'spoil'. When the refrigerator is cooling down the reverse will ccur and the contents of the refrigerator may well freeze.

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with refrigerator. I will try to assist you with this repair. First, unplug the refrigerator from the wall. Then use the instructions posted below to remove the front cover. Once the cover is removed, take the screws out that secure the shield assembly. Then you will nave access to the flapper. Make sure to note any wires you remove. This will save you time and frustration later.

I am sorry I could nit provide you with better instructions. The service manual does not cover the dispenser.

Please let me know if you need further assistance on the repair.

Here is a link to order any parts you need. Sears Parts Direct .

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.

This doesn't seem to be very hard to accomplish. Is the Door recess PART NUMBER: WR17X3093 all that I need to keep the ice from forming at the top of the chute?

A:

The part number for the door recess changes to # WR17X11653 and will probably help in preventing ice from forming in the chute. Also check for burrs around the chute that may be preventing the door from making a good seal.

Thanks. I knew the diagram already. That was why I bought a slide bearing in the first place. When I got the part, it was not clear to me how one attaches it to the arm.

A:

Sometimes assembling parts can be difficult. Unfortunately, nobody here has ever had to put one of these slides and bearings together. There are no instructions of putting these parts together. Pictures will help. If you can send some pictures of both parts, we may be able to determine how they fit together. For more assistance, please reply and include some pictures, so we can assist you further.
