This is a thermistor. It depends where it is located how you would be changing it but the generic answer would be unplug the refrigerator. remove the old one leaving some of the leads from the old one before you cut the wires. so you have some wire to work with. Using small wire nuts or crimp connectors wire the new thermistor to the old leads from the old thermistor it is best to either fill the wire connectors or crimp connectores wirh silicone sealant or tape the connectors with electrical tape to prevent water from entering the connections. Put the thermistor into position and away you go.

Refigerator and freezer all of the sudden don't seem to keep cold enough

The back wall of your freezer covered with snow? If it is I would suggest you replace the heater and a thermistor - Heater: WR51X10101 Thermistor: WR55X10025. If no snow then it is probably the main pcb: WR55X10656

Coils frzg up in freezer section refrig side to warm. changed terminator and heater.i have a ge sxs gss22wgmd.

well i wonder if you have changed both the white sensor part number WR55X10025. This is the sensor that tells the mother board to go into defrost. The other terminator is only a backup safety stat. If this dont solve your defrost problem. Then change the motherboard.

Zisb480dmc monogram, replaced Fresh food damper(-17 in freezer, 48 in refer), did not solve. Replaced Main board and fresh food thermistors, worked 10 days, problem became 44 in fresh food -27 in freezer....

there's a temp sensor on the evap coil part WR55X10025,i would change that out and when you changed the board if there's a wire in the second pin of the connector with ithink 9 pins on it you have to cut the wire that's in the second pin,if there's no wire in the first pin but one in the second pin then leave it alone,look at the paper that came with the board and it will tell you what connector it is,let me know what you find,the old sensor has like a black piece on it where the wires come out of it,the new one is all white but you should change the sensor when you change out the board
