I need to know how to wire defrost thermostat and defrost heater on Admiral refrig model no as22n8d
Answer Hello Wendell,
There are only two wires to each. Since these parts are not polarized, you cannot hook either of them up "backwards". The defrost heater will have a white wire to one end and a yellow on the other. The defrost thermostat will have a white wire that attaches to the defrost heater white wire and a blue wire on the other end that leads back to the temperature control in the fresh food section.
What is best way to remove and install the defrost heater?
To remove the defrost heater, you will first need to remove the shelves and the rear cover in the freezer compartment. Once removed you will need to defrost the coils around the heater and remove the 2 screws at each heater bracket and remove the heaters. Install new heater and reassemble.
