How do I replace control part no. 240383703 ?
Answer Hello Willie,
Unplug the unit from the wall outlet and remove the three screws along the bottom of the control panel. These three screws thread straight up towards the ceiling. There is one screw you will need to remove that threads towards the freezer compartment up behind the control panel. now you will need to remove the screw from the cover on the freezer side at the top right of the freezer compartment. This will allow you to slightly depress the hooking tabs at each corner of the air duct between the freezer and fresh food compartments. Now go back to the fresh food section and remove the screw at the rear top holding the assembly to the wall of the fresh food compartment. This should allow you to pull the assembly away from the wall and unplug the electrical connection to the ceiling. Now you can remove the assembly and complete the repair on the counter top. At this point, you should take several pictures with your cell phone so you can get the assembly back together as it originally was so it will go back together properly. Re-assembly is in the reverse order of the dis-assembly. One point, do not tighten any of the screws until you have started all of the screws. Tightening them down will prevent you from peeking between the parts to line the next screw up with the screw hole.
My freezer keeps freezing up! Someone mentioned that the defrost timer may need to be reset. Where is the timer located on this model Frigidaire? Model #FRT18S6AWY
Answer Hello Allison. The timer 215846602 is located inside the control ont he unit. It sounds like you may have a defrost problem with the unit. Check and see if there is any frost build up on the back wall of the freezer. If so, you will need to test the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. They should read closed for continuity when cold. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. I will include a link at the end to assist you how to use the multi-meter if needed. If both parts are good, you will need to replace the defrost timer. Once the problem is repaired, you will need to thaw out the ice on the coils before the unit will operate properly. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
