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.

This limiter thermostat cuts out when the temperature inside your refrigerator reaches 55 degrees Fahrenheit and kicks back in when the internal temperature drops to 20 degrees Fahrenheit. If you discover temperature issues with your refrigerator or freezer, the defrost thermostat may need to be replaced. You will need tools for this repair, including a 1/4-inch nut driver, a pair of wire strippers, and a heat gun. Be sure to disconnect power to the refrigerator before completing this repair. The defrost thermostat is located behind the back panel of your side-by-side refrigerator/freezer. You will first need to remove the panel and take the defrost thermostat out to complete the repair.
