My refrigerators' center divider is very hot. I can't touch it with my hand. What causes this?
Answer Hello Juan,
You either need to clean the hot coils behind the unit or the condenser fan motor 242018301 has failed.
The coil freezes up after about a month of refrigeration. When ice is removed it runs great for about another month. We are not sure what part needs replacing. What part do we need?
Answer Hello Tom,
This is going to be one of the defrost circuit components. They are the defrost thermostat 5303917954, the defrost timer 215846602, and defrost heater 5317842502 in that order. The defrost thermostat is the most common part to fail.
I unplugged all the leads to the defroster thermostat and to heater before ordering the part and can't remember what plugs into where...can you help me?
Your defrost thermostat has 2 wire that come off of it and one side it will connect to the heater and one side connects to the blue wire coming out of the cabinet. The other side of the heater will connect to the black wire or dark blue wire.
