Hello, i need to replace part # wr50x10108, looking at the diagrams i am not sure where it is located. Is it behind the freezer door assembly? I just need more details of where it exactly is.Thank you karen

Hi Karen, Thank you for your question. The defrost thermostat is located with the evaporator coils behind the panel in the freezer section. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

I just replaced the evap fan in my fridge because it was seized, and not getting cold. Now the cabinet is constantly frozen. Is this a part i should look to diagnose?
For model number PFE29PSDASS
Hi Rick, Thank you for your question. It could be your defrost thermostat that is the issue however I would actually suggest that you take a look at your temperature sensor first. It may be that part has also failed. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Freezer is too cold and refridge is warm replaced the temperature sensor in the freezer and still have problem, think of replacing thermostat defrost in freeze or do you think it might be something else i need to replace?
For model number GFE28HMHDES
Hi Brad, Thank you for your question. I would also suggest checking the defrost heater as well. You can test both parts with a multi meter to be sure they are working or not. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

My freezer is getting warm, but fridge still works. I took off the panel behind the freezer and there was a block of ice near the top right. I melted it with a blow dryer yesterday. Freezer still not getting cold. I didn't turn the fridge off when i did that. Can a test the thermostat with a multimeter?
For model number PYE23KSDCSS
Good Day Branton. Thank you for your question in regards to your unit (Model Number PYE23KSDCSS). Based on our research you should be able to test the thermostat with a multi meter to be sure they are working or not. We hope this helps. Best Regards.

My bottom drawer keeps freezing up and not allowing cold air into the upper part of the refridgerator. I replaced the the fresh food defroster ( part number wr51x10132) thinking that woudl fix it, it worked for a little while but now it is freezing up again. Is there another part or two i should replace?Thanks
For model number PYE22PSHHSS
Hello Matt, thank you for inquiring. You will want to consider replacing either the Temperature Sensor, part number PS304103, or the Run Capacitor, part number PS11764031 for your model refrigerator. Good luck with your repair!

My ref,. Is not coling.
For model number GFE27GGDABB
Hello Naren and thanks for writing. It certainly sounds like a faulty temperature sensor PS304103 and/or capacitor PS11764031 check for signs of damage, and change it if needed. It is recommended to replace both parts at the same time. We hope this helps. Please contact us anytime.

Fridge is warm and the freezer works fine. It's either the fridge temperature sensor or the thermostat. I will replace both. Where specifically are they located in the fridge? Behind the coil?
For model number DFE29JSDASS
Hello Robert, Thank you for the question. If you enter the sensor part number PS304103 into the site search box it will come up with a How to Video that will show its location. The Thermostat is located on the back of the appliance with the Defrost Heater and coils. We hope this helps.

Okay question for the question: Do I access from the back or through the freezer and do I have to take the assembly out to get to it. Kinda looks that way.. Here is what I asked and what was answered: Hello, I need to replace part # wr50x10108, looking at the diagrams I am not sure where it is located. Is it behind the freezer door assembly? I just need more details of where it exactly is.Thank you Karen Karen for model number pye23ksdcss answer: Hi Karen, thank you for your question.

For model number pye23ksdcss
Hi Karen, Thank you for contacting us back. You will need to remove the back panel of the freezer to gain access to the thermostat. Once the panel is removed you will see where the thermostat clips onto the coils. Very sorry but I am not sure what Assembly you are referring to. Once the back panel of the freezer is removed, the only part you will need to take out is the thermostat its self. Hope this helps!
