I looked at the video that came with the part and followed what i saw. My wife and i was about to go out and spend between $1500 and $2500 on a new refrigerator due to continuous defrosting. It had been happening for about a year. I followed the instructions from the video and the defrosting has stopped. Thanks so much for the video and the part! We do not need a new refrigerator after all.

I called angies list to get a name of a repair person . We were having very hot weather and I did not want my freezer food to spoil. The cost was not bad for the look see $127.00 plus parts and labor added on to this. I decided to look on the internet and found your services and the video on how to replace the part that might be bad. I bought a new thermostat and also a sensor and added the control board as the refrigerator is 13 years old. I spent a total of $206.00 and did the work myself so no labor cost. I was so happy as a new refrigerator like this one would be $3100.00 plus tax. Thank You R. Polglase

Based on instruction I replaced the defrost thermostat and the temperature sensor. There was no improvement. The defrost thermostat was supplied with orange and red wires. the original wires were orange and pink. I connected the 2 orange wires and the pink to the red. So I don't really know if that is the problem or not. currently I don't know what to do next anyone got an ideas? It has dual evaporation.

My fridge starting getting warm inside so I took the back panel of the freezer off and seen the coils being completely frozen. I thawed it with hair dryer and took out both the heater element and thermostat off and performed an ohm test with multimeter. Heater seeme good with 23 ohm resistance but thermostat had no current flow through it. After replacing the thermostat the fridge works like new. I replaced the heater as well even though it seemed okay for peace of mind.

Side by side refrigerator side was not cooling, And freezer was not cold enough to keep ice from melting.
