Hi, what the difference between the thermostat defrost, model number WR50X10068 and WR50X10069 for the GE Profile Refrigerators. They look identical and the WR50X10068 appears to more easier to get.
Answer Hello Dan,
The difference between the 2 may be the temperature ratings. The one for your unit calls for an overtemperature thermostat of between 110 - 140 degrees. Both parts are available and both will work for your unit.
Defrost cycle lets ice melt before starting back up. How does this thermostat effect this cycle?
Answer Hello Bobh. The defrost thermostat WR50X10069 is designed to open when the temperature of the coils reach a certain temperature and turns off the heater. Hope this helps.
