Since I wasn't sure if it was the bimetal thermostat or timer, I purchased both. After reading the comments of other repairer's, the price of both parts was worth the work of defrosting the freezer twice.I unplugged the refrigerator and removed the ice buildup in the freezer. I removed the trays and rear panel (7 screws). I had to remove the ice on the condenser (a hair dryer works perfectly). The thermostat came off easily, just unsnaps. Like others, I had to cut 1 wire, solder and tape the old end terminal to match the wiring. I relpaced the panel and trays. I then removed the timer housing 2 screws and the timer 2 screws. The timer was an exact replacement. Just unplug the old and plug in the new. The only rough part was the bottom housing screw. The bottom frame was in the way but with a little wiggling and bending I was able to remove it. Its been over a week and everything is working great.(the unit is even running less now). I know I saved a lot of money doing the repair myself. The repair stories were very helpfull. I will go to your site for other repairs and parts. Susan Staten Island, New York

Past experiences told me it was the defrost timer. Turned the timer wheel, the compressor came on and that told me the timer wasn't working correctly. I ordered the timer and put it in.
I ordered the defrost timer and then read a couple of repair history stories. The timer was fairly easy to install. Then I advanced the small knob until I felt a "click". The covers were reinstalled inside the freezer. And the appliance is normal. Plug and Play. I learned that the timer is for the activation of a heater in or under the freezer"s aluminum fin assembly. Alot of folks don"t know that a refrigerator gets it"s supply of cold air from the freezing compartment. Everybody is happy. Thanks
