IS DEFROST CONTROL THE CORRECT NAME FOR THE PART. I WENT TO APPLIANCEPARTSPRO.COM AND COULD NOT LOCATE THE PART USING DEFROST CONTROL AND THE PART NUMBER YOU GAVE ME OF ps2327741.

 

 

Please advise, thanks.

Appliance Technician: JIM, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago
it is called adaptive control

DROPPING THE ps from the part number the defrost control or adaptive control did not come up.

 

 

If i ask for a defrost control or an adaptive control would the parts folks be able to identify the part that I require?
