Hello...I’ve got a LFHT2131Qf4 Frigidaire. It’s a second fridge, and is kept in and uninsulated garage. We recent had sub freezing temps, and the fridge stopped working...freezer thawed as temps dropped below freezing, and items in the fridge froze. I’ve done a l;to of online research and understand the problem. So I purchased the Frigidaire Garage Kit(###) ###-####. Online videos showed installation in the control/light unit. But my refrigerator seems to have a light unit mounted on the top of the fridge compartment, and a control unit slider on the side of the compartment.1. Can I use the Garge Kit on my fridge.
2. Do I install it on inside the overhead light unit? Is that where the temp sensor is?
3. If so, how do I get it off without breaking?Ken

Here’s the online video I referenced. https://youtu.be/hwh-yenKNJADidn’t realize that my control unit was on the side of the cabinet rather than a part of the overhead light housing.

The kit will work you have to install it in the housing above the light. Pop the light shield off then remove the vertical screws to get the housing down and put it in there. Here is a video to help. This is not a perfect fit for your unit but it will work. See video link below.

Thanks. I will watch the video. But I’ve al;ready removed light cover. But only found one hex head screw, in the center front. I removed it, but the unit still seems mounted to the ceiling of the fridge compartment. Do you think there are more screws hidden somewhere? Or does the unit “snap” on and off via clips?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
The video link you sent me is the SAME video I sent you!
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Is there a way I can send you a picture of my unit?

There is only one screw holding it in and it should come down. CLICK HERE IMAGE
