Temperature Sensor
PartSelect Number PS304103
Manufacturer Part Number WR55X10025
This temperature sensor, also known as a thermistor, is used for refrigerators and freezers. The sensor sends the temperature reading of the refrigerator towards the control board. If your refrigerator or freezer runs too long, is too warm, will not defrost, or has sections that are too cold, replacing this part is the solution. Before replacing the temperature sensor, make sure to unplug the fridge for safety. The tools needed for this repair are a nut driver, wire crimper, and wire splice connectors. Search your model number to ensure the correct part is ordered and refer to model specific diagrams/owners manual for the exact instructions.

Defrost Thermostat
PartSelect Number PS1017716
Manufacturer Part Number WR50X10068
This defrost termination thermostat acts as a safety device to stop the evaporator coil from overheating, by turning off the defrost heater at the end of the defrost cycle. The thermostat measures the temperature in your freezer to ensure that it stays at an optimum temperature to keep your frozen food from thawing. Some common symptoms linked to a faulty defrost termination thermostat include: the freezer is not defrosting, is too cold/too warm, or there is a frost build up in the freezer. Before you decide to replace this part, ensure that there is no frost buildup in your freezer as it can interfere with the thermostat reading.
