Will this work on my Whirlpool model # ET21PKXFW01. The drain line keeps freezing up causing water to drip down into the refrigerator around the drain hole and ice builds up around the drain hole area. Thanks
Answer Hello Scott,
This part 819043 may work on your unit but you need to make certain it cannot contact any plastic inside the freezer compartment. Since it get as hot as the heating element, this could damage the unit beyond repair. Depending on the application, this part may have to be trimmed down shorter.
Will this work for my Kitchenaid KSSS42QDX05? If not, will you please advise me of an alternate kit. Also, are there installation instructions included? Thank you
Answer Scott, Yes the 819043 defrost heat probe will work in your refrigerator. An easier and less intrusive part is the 22001900 "duck bill" which is installed in the end of the defrost pan drain tube and it's just as effective as the heat probe.
