Amana model# abb2224deb shows defrost thermostat short in diagnostic test. Does this point directly to a bad defrost thermostat or could it be the defrost heater or timer also?

Fridge is warm, freezer not defrosting and I can see ice in the vents. I replaced the defrost timer but that didnt do the job. Two questions... 1. Should I replace both the defrost thermostat and the defrost heater? 2. Which defrost thermostat is the right one? I see 2 on your site and another compeditor is also offering 2 - one at 54 deg & one at 38 deg.. Thanks Bryan

My refrigerator freezer has stop working,The repairman told me that the thermostat has to be replaced because he could see the ice buildup and that's what's causing the fan not to work,my frig. Is self defrosting. So far I have spend over $150 and now he says it would be $95 to fix it. I think I could do it myself a lot cheaper!! What do you think??

I just installed a new themostat wpl61005254 and defrost heater. After installation I put fridge in defrost mode and checked voltage. It only read 80v and 30v on the blue and white wire. (v in&out) The original thermostat read 120v and 20v-or something small. I assumed the timer is OK getting 120v in. Is it possible when I checked the new one, it was not cold enough to get 120V?
