Is the defrost limit thermostat available with different spec temperatures.? WR50X10068 I have replaced the heater coil with the newer double coil unit and the sensor at the same time. Now the ice in the ice bin is partially melting and refreezing causing the cube to clump up causing dispenser problems.I'm thinking the freezer is over warming and could use a lower temp sensor. Thanks, Harold

Latest Questions

My freezer gets warm and then will start defrosting, this typically happens every 5-7 days. The frequency has compressed. Sometimes when I unplug the frig for about 15-20 minutes it will begin to freeze normally and the freezer fan will once again come on. I usually need to use turbo to achieve this.. Is this a sensor, or the main board?? Dave
