This is my 3rd time to check it. The defrost timer moves as it is purposed to. The rod became hot by touch last time when I opened the inside panel in the freezer compartment, but not this time during the defrost status. I have a multimeter. How to test the thermostat or timer? Thanks!

ANSWER Hello Jerome. The thermostat 10442409 should read closed for continuity when cold, and the timer can be removed and test the contacts for continuity. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
