My KitchenAid has an electronic defrost timer, with a chip in it. Will the mechanical timer you sell replace the electronic timer I currently have? Also, how can I test my unit to be sure the defrost timer has failed?
The mechanical defrost timer will not work in place of the electronic defrost timer. To check the timer the best thing to do is if the unit is not defrosting then do a continuity test on the heater and defrost bimetal, if there is continuity with both then the issue would be the timer.

Answer Hello Bonitarunner. Yes, you will need to install the black wire onto terminal number 2 of the timer.
What terminal does the black wire go on (no tech sheet)?
Answer Neck hurts,
The black lead wire for the new timer will go to the number 1 terminal on the timer for your model.
