I sucessfully replaced the part as you suggested. Not too much of a problem. The refrigerator starting working again and all was good. Then 5 days ago we started to hear the same loud humming sound as before. Earlier tonight we noticed that the refiregerator was making the noise more frequently and that it was no longer cooling.
In other words, it seems like the same part has failed again. Is this a symptom of a larger problem? or should I simply replace the same part again?
Not exactly the response I was hoping for, but I appreciate the honesty.
Perhaps it is time to purchase a new one where I will get a new warranty. This one only lasted just over 4 years.
You are welcome,,,Let me know how it goes...
