This is a Kenmore bottom freezer unit. It is 3.5 years old and has started making louder and louder noises when it cycles into ? defrost cycle ?. In prior fridges this was always the "cycle timer" and it's plastic gears making more noise. Before it stops functioning I wanted to replace it. I looked at your parts here and suspect it is the " Control" AP4873610 listed here. If so ... where can I see a parts explosion showing me how to get at this piece to replace.Thank you for your assistance ... Jim

Northern Unity for Model Number 596.66032601

ANSWER Northern, You're on track. The refrigerator you have does not have a "defrost timer" or "cycle timer". The defrost cycle circuit is a separate circuit in the control board W10503278. Based on your post I imagine you may hear a buzzing or chatterrring noise when you open the fridge door and the fridge is in the defrost cycle . Thanks and Good Luck
