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

Whirlpool Side-By-Side Refrigerator model #GS6SHAXMQ00 mfg Sept, 2003. Classic problem with Freezer working fine and fridge barely cool. Ice forming in the bottom of freezer - probably from drain being frozen. Took off back panel inside freezer and coils covered in frost/ice. No air being pushed by fan from freezer to fridge. Seems likely that the defrost mechanism is kapoot but this is the extent of my knowledge. Suggestions? Thanks !

My refrigerator,water filter and water line keep frosting up even if I set the control temperature all the way up,what could be wrong?

Freezer keeps frosting up and drain keeps freezing leaving a pool of water on the floor of my freezer. I have defrosted and cleared the drain line 6 times in the last six months. Last time I ran a thin copper wire down the drain tube to keep it heated during defrost cycle to allow water to drain. Worked for about six weeks and now it is frozen solid again. My Dad thinks I need to replace the Defrost bi-metal. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated being that Sears customer service is worthless.
