I got the parts today and just finished installing them. I guess I'll know if a few hours if it's fixed. Right now both compartments are at room temperature.

I did have one problem not related to the original problem- the feeezer door didn't want to close. I had left the doors open to air it out. The gasket on the hinge side of the freezer door seems to have expanded. I was able to compress it with a screwdriver blade and close it. I'm hoping with use it will go back to it's usual shape and not be a problem.

Two days have passed and so far so good. The freezer is around 10 degrees and the fridge section in the mid 30's. Of course I probably won't know for sure that everything is OK until after several defost cycles but I don't see any reason to think there will be a problem. Even the gasket has been sealing with no problem.

9 days and everything seems A-OK. Made a donation. Thanks so much.

A note of warning to all. The Mrs. took the opportunity to clean the glass shelves. One of them just shattered in her hands. First it cracked like a spider web and then just seemed to explode sending little bits of glass all over the place. Fortunately she wasn't hurt but a mess to clean up. Beware, tempered glass can be quite unpredictable. And no it was not cold from the fridge, it was room temperature.
