I purchased a new defrost timer and it came with a jumper wire which the original one did not have. My refrigerator has four wires going to the connector. The instructions state for the three wire hook up to connect the jumper between terminals 3 & 4. Is the jumper required for my application? I hooked it up per the instructions and after running for a period of time it blew the circuit breaker?? I removed the jumper, the refrigerator seems to be operating fine, but the defrost timer seems to get to a point and not move any further. Should this timer run continuously, like a clock? Have I damaged the timer? Thanks for your help!!
ANSWER Hello Pedro. Based on the information you provided, the timer does not need the jumper wire. Check and make sure the numbers on the new timer match up with the old timer numbers. If so, you may have damaged the timer 215846604 with the jumper wire. Hope this helps.
