Note: This question is for the older version of this part, but we thought you might still find it helpful

I opened the back panel of my freezer to get to the bimetl-def, which I have located, but my problem is that one of the bimetl-def (Brown)wire is connected to another wire (which leads to something else),crimped onto a wire connector with a male pin on the other end. I would have to cut both wires to disconnect the bimetl-def from the wire connector in order to change it out. My question is, I can't find the wire connector (with the male pin on the end which is inserted into a harnest), to fasten both wires.

Latest Questions

Kitchenaid side by side. The mullion on the panel between the freezer and fresh food compartment gets very hot during defrost cycle. After defrost cycle ends it cools down some but still stays quite warm to the touch. All else seems fine. Is there something failing that I should replace as a preventative measure? Thanks for your help.

Hi, my freezer is defrosting with no standing water or ice on the freezer walls. The problem I am having is that the items in the freezer are mostly frozen but not totally frozen. Perfect example would be the ice freezes in the ice maker perfectly and is emptied into the bucket but the ice begins to melt just enough to make them stick together. Bananas are not totally frozen, the outside layer is very sticky and that is not normal for my freezer. I have two parts available for the freezer Part # AP4511066 which is a Defrost Thermostat Then there is the choice Part # AP3110896 which is a Defrost Timer Switch Kit So, I called your company and was told it would be the first part I would need # AP4511066 and after watching your video on installation of this part you mentioned at the beginning that this would be for controlling the defrost heater. If the heater isn't turning on or off. I am confused as to which part I might need. I am thinking this might be it but I admit I am unsure if it is correct or not. Can you help me with this part #? Thanks for your videos.
