How to replace a defrost thermostat on this model? I need to buy the part but want to be sure on replacing.
To replace the defrost bimetal on unit you will first unplug unit. Once unplugged you will empty freezer compartment and pull rear cover of freezer out. Once this is done you will need a pair of wire strippers. You will cut out the old bimetal and install the new one using the connectors with the part.
Defrost not working; I turned the timer to force a defrost cycle and exosed thecoils to see they are not dripping. Is there a heater for them on this model...I didn't see one listed.???
Answer Hello Rus,
There would be a defrost heater 218657301 for unit. You would want to check continuity on your heater and defrost thermostat 297216600. If either do not have continuity then you would need to replace that part.
