DO I HAVE TO DO ANYTHING WITH REFRIGERANT TO REPLACE THE COMPRESSOR? I WAS TOLD THAT I NEED A TECHNICIAN TO DO THIS BECAUSE OF REFRIGERANT.
Answer Yes you do. There are a number of things you would need. 1) Refrigeration certification in order to buy freon. 2) A number of specialty tools, such as torches, gauges, vacumn pump, charging cylinder, etc. It really isn't a normal job for someone without sealed system experience. If you can get someone who can provide this service we would be more then happy to provide the compressor to you for them to install.

What is the btu rating for part#wr87x10244
Unfortunately the manufacturer does not supply the BTU rating to us for the compressors.
What size compressor would this be?
We do not have the size of the compressor for the model. In most cases the Horsepower of the compressor will be either a 1/4 or a 1/3 HP.
What is the average labor cost to replace the compressor. In other words, how long does iit take?
We would not be able to advise on the cost to replace a compressor as each company charges different labor rates. In most cases a compressor change out can take anywhere between 1 1/2 and 3 hrs just depending on how difficult the manufacturer made it to get to all the lines to braze then out and back in and if there is any modifications requires to adapt the compressor.
What refrigerant is this compressor kit designed for and will it work in the GE Monogram built in all freezer model zifs36nmlh currently using R134A.
The compressor kit WR87X10211 is a R134a refrigerant type compressor but will not work for your unit. Your unit has a variable speed compressor and would need to use compressor kit part number WR87X10111.
