how do you test/know that your defrost thermostat is good/bad...when i put a continuity meter across the two leads i get maximum deflection then trails off slowwly....tks

Mat for Model Number 59669872990

ANSWER Mat, There should be no " trails off slowly" it should have an either "open" or "closed" circuit. With the thermostat out of the unit, and at room temp, your meter should indicate an "open" circuit. If you put the assembly into a glass of ice water, wait a couple of minutes, then test it, it should have a "closed" circuit. If you have a "trailing off" scenario, you'd have to presume the thermostat is faulty. Thanks
