To test a defrost thermostat ,can you just tone out the two wires on it ?
Answer Hello Kevin,
To test defrost timer do a continuity check between the 2 wires. Check it when it is cold and you should have continuity.
My freezer runs constantly it gets to about 0°F. Do you think the thermostat/temperature control could be bad?
Answer Hello Walt,
The thermostat could be bad, but 0°F is perfect for the freezer with an ice maker. I would first pull the kick plate off and vacuum the coils. If you cannot access them from the front, pull the unit out and remove the bottom rear cover and vacuum them from there. Most of the time when a unit runs continuously, it is having problems dissipating the heat it has removed from inside the unit back into the room. While you're back there you need to make sure the condenser fan is running.
Which side do the blue wire connect to and which do the black wire connect to on the control-temperature Part#AP2113836?
Answer Hello Mr. Pontoon. Looking at the end of the temperature control 216788000 where the temp line comes out, the black goes on the left and the blue goes on the right. Hope this helps.
