Where is the Defrost Timer located and how do I get to it?
Answer Hello Bob,
Most of these are mounted in the back, on the opposite side of the refrigerator from the water inlet valve. you will see the heads of the two screws that mount the timer and a hole in the middle of the two screws. The hole is where you reach through to advance the timer. If you remove the two screws, the timer is easily removed from behind the cabinet edge.

Answer Hello Marc. Turn the timer 68233-3 until it clicks. If the contacts still read open, the timer 68233-3 is bad and will need to be replaced. Hope this helps.
my freezer frosts up and ref wont stay cold
Answer Roberta, The defrost timer is a good possibility but it's a bit more common for the heater fail 61002045 or a loose connection at the defrost thermostat or bad thermostat 61005254 You'll need to remove the freezer back wall to access and check the heater, thermostat and wiring. Thanks and Good Luck.
