the other day the freezer starting getting warmer,ice cream was melted . shut it down, let it defrost for an hour. in the morning everything was fine, temp was -1. as the night went on the temp rose. in the morning it was at -1 again. 15 hours later it is rising again. no frost on the back of the freezer
The first thing that you will want to do is to check the thermistors in the unit. The resistance rating of each thermistor. The thermistor resistance should be 42K ohms at 0 degrees, 14.4K ohms at 37 degrees and 5k ohms at 77 degrees. If these check ok then the control board would be the most likely issue.
Your defrost heater kit has two bulbs. My 9" unit has one bulb. How do I connect it? There is no video on a two bulb unit.
Answer Carol, the defrost heater kit part number WR51X10101 is the correct replacement listed for your model and will include the installation instructions to adapt to your unit. Thanks.
Do you have a video on how to replace it?
Answer Hello Roger. Sorry, we do not have one at this time. We are working daily at adding new videos to our website. Thanks.
I want to order this part but the replacement has what looks like two plugs on each end. My fridge only has one on each end. Is there a conversion kit or something? I need this part because my freezer keeps over frosting.
Answer Dale, the part listed may be a manufacturer replacement. The single defrost heaters have recently been replacement with a double heater. To verify that this is the correct replacement listed for your appliance we'll need your model number. Please obtain this information and repost for further assistance. Thanks!
This replacement defrost heater has two elements instead of one. Does it have two plug in connectors on each side like it looks like in the picture, because my fridge has only one plug on each side
Answer Dale, Yes, the heater assembly has all the connections and jumper wires needed to install the dual heater kit in your refrigerator. The heater kit also has instruction sheets to inform you of the proper wiring and attachments. Make sure you remove power to the refrigerator, and follow the instructions and you won't have any issues.
