Defrost Thermostat
PartSelect Number PS469510
Manufacturer Part Number 5303918202
This defrost thermostat is also known as a refrigerator defrost bi-metal thermostat kit. The function of the defrost bi-metal thermostat is to prevent overheating during the defrost cycle in your refrigerator by protecting the evaporator. The most common sign that there is a problem with your refrigerator defrost thermostat kit is if your freezer is cold but your refrigerator is warm. If your evaporator coils are icy then your defrost bi-metal thermostat kit could be defective. To do this installation the tools you will need include a 1/4 inch nut driver, a pair of wire strippers and crimpers, and a heat gun.
