Remove the plastic lens where the thermostat is located.

In the fridge , its the control you turn the fridge off and on with.

appliance doctor :

Great, then the problem is the defrost timer.

appliance doctor :

You can buy one at Sears or any appliance parts store near you.

Customer:

is there a part number or is this something that is standard?

Customer:

is it fairly easy to repair - something I can do or do I need to get someone?

appliance doctor :

the part number for the timer is WR9X489

Customer:

would this also affect the temperture on the frig side?

appliance doctor :

Yes it will because the frost cuts the air flow to the fridge.

appliance doctor :

The cost is $ 24.00 at Sears.

Customer:

is the defrost timer located on the inside, back side?

appliance doctor :

Its located in that control box, unplug the fridge when you get the timer and remove the screws that hold that box and remove the timer.

Customer:

Good deal - thanks for the help

Customer:

is there anything else I should know before I give it the ole all american try?

appliance doctor :

Your very welcome.
