How do you replace a defrost thermostat
Answer Hi Jim, after you have disconnected the power, in the freezer you will need to remove the evaporator cover assembly (the back wall). Once the evaporator is exposed you should see the defrost thermostat attached to it. Just pull it off and unplug the two wires. Install the new defrost thermostat in reverse order. Hope this helps!
How do you check a defrost thermostat?
Answer Hello Dave. The defrost thermostat WR50X10025 should read closed for continuity when cold. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter.
