I want to replace faulty freezer thermostat in whirlpool side by side fridge mod ed22dqxew01 --am having trouble removing cover for freezer-refridgerator control dials. I removed two screws in rear of


First question why are you replacing the freezer thermostat? Do you have an ice build up on the rear wall of the freezer? This build up if you do have it is not due to the thermostat control for the freezer. It is termed as a defrost issue due to a fault condition being present in the defrost thermostat, the defrost heater, or the defrost timer or adaptive control depending on which type of refrigerator you have. I will await your reply as to why you are replacing the control thermostat and if you do have any ice up condition before posting further how to solve this situation. I await your reply
Thank you

Freezer works refrigerator portion does nt


Hello,

If refrigerator is not cooling properly can be due to a defrost timer, which is causing the fridge to go into defrost cycle. Usually it takes 45-60 minutes for refrigerator to come out of defrost cycle. If the timer goes bad then it will not come out of defrost cycle and can result in this kind of issues. It can also occur due to defrost thermostat, it allows current to pass through it at temperatures of 20 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit and prevents current from passing through it at 40 to 60 degrees. This is difficult to test, though, because it takes a prolonged, very-cold temperature to turn it on. The defrost thermostat is snapped onto the top portion of the evaporator. The thermostat sends temperature information to the processor. The defrost heater must be replaced when replacing the thermostat.

1. Remove the lower fan duct work from the evaporator cover.
2. Remove the 1/4-in. evaporator cover screws and remove the evaporator cover.
3. Disconnect the defrost thermostat wiring connector.
4. Remove the defrost thermostat from the evaporator.

I hope the above helps.......

Regards.

Looking for kelvinator n500t wiring diagram


My Kelviator fridge was freezing things solid, I was told that the thermostat needed replacement as we have no electrician availiable, I bought a new thermostat. I removed the two screw holding the thermostst/light control, took off the cover then made a diagram of the thermostat wiring. After I removed the old thermostat the light control sprung out of its position and I can't see where it should go. Can I obtain a picture of this.
