My Repair & Advice
Suddenly one day my 27 years old refrigerator stop running.
I put my finger in the defrost timer adjustment slot, and tried to turn and it was running again.
I had to do that almost once in 2 or 3 days.
My wife told me to trash it, since we have a newer refrigerator in the kitchen.
I ordered part from AppliancePartsPros.com, and it arrived in 2 days.
I replaced the part, and past 3 days it runs without hitch.
The part I ordered was almost same as original part except old part had two back wires to connect to selection terminals (I had to pick one terminal since new one only have 1 wire to terminaln and I pickterminal #2), and also had ground connection since it had metal cover (not like all plastic cover on new one).
It was missing two nuts and I had to dig out from my old tool box.
(That is why I could not give out 5 stars)
Other than that it fits perfectly well and took about 20 minutes to replace the timer including about 5 minutes to find those two pesky nuts..
20 bucks well spend, and Job well done.
