Can you tell me how to install thermistor Part # 2306010 on the freezer side. Also my service provider ordered this part for my model, he said the pins are not lining up. The mfr does not seem to have any changes to the part. I am ordering from your site to see if I can try to help myself on this issue
Thanks and regards
Answer Jaya, To replace the freezer compartment thermistor 2306010 " NOTE: Sharp edges may be present. 1. Unplug the refrigerator or disconnect the power. NOTE: The refrigerator and freezer thermistors are identical and are removed in the same manner. 2.Depending on the thermistor, open the freezer or refrigerator door, and remove any items from the shelf that are in front of the thermistor. It may be necessary to remove the shelf as well. 3. Remove the hex-head screw from the thermistor cover. Pull the cover forward at the screw end, and unhook the tab from the slot at the other end of the thermistor cover.4. Disconnect the 2-wire connector and remove the thermistor."
To the best of our knowledge, and based on the available parts information, there has been no changes to the thermistor by the manufacturer, but if there is a connection issue, you can cut the wires and use wire nuts to attach the thermistor harness to the chassis harness, just remember to seal the end of the wire nuts to keep moisture out of the connection.
