I've read your reply from 2 years ago and agree with the possible cap problem. Can you tell me which ones to replace?
Sylvania Model LC370SS8 comes on blinks a couple times and shuts down. I fixed it once by giving it the shelf treatment for about a week and soldering cold solder joints. But suspect a capacitor on the power board. Can you suggest which ones to replace or if there is a power supply repair kit?

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
