I have been advised to replace the thermister AP4076741 in my refrigerator. Where is it located and can I do this job with ordinary tools?
ANSWER Hello Dave,
The fresh food thermistor in the model you indicated is actually behind the rail that the shelves attach on to. You will need to remove the shelves and, using an ordinary Phillips head screwdriver, remove the shelf rail. You will need to splice the thermistor in and seal the connections so moisture won't cause a failure. You can seal the connections with either white lithium grease or with silicone.
