this doesnt have continuity. i have a bunch of different wires leading into a plastic plug clip
. I tried to check for continuity there, nothing
Appliance Technician: Bryan, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago
ok you can cut the wires to this and put them together to test and see if the fan come on. this is the defrost thermostat but it also runs the fan don't leave it bypassed though because when this goes to defrost this shuts the heater off when it defrosted, see if the fan comes on with this jumped out, remember to unplug the refrigerator before cutting the wire, if the fan doesn't start reconnect the thermostat, and we can continue to look for another cause,
