The freezer is freezing, coils are freezing up and the unit is not cooling in the refrigerator section. What part do I need?
Answer Linda, based on the information you have given it sounds as if you have a defrost failure. The defrost system consists of the defrost timer R0168027, defrost heater R0130430, and the defrost thermostat R0130427. You will need to test and replace the defective part. You can test parts by using a MultiMeter TJMA-DM1. Here is a link from our free repair forum you can refer to for help with using a multi meter.

Where is the timer and thermostat located?
Answer Hello Harry. The thermostat 10442410 is located behind the back wall inside the freezer. If you remove the wall, you will see the thermostat on the top of the evaporator assembly. The defrost timer R0168027 is located in the control panel section inside the fresh food section of the unit. Hope this helps.
