Defroster repair on an Admiral Refer

4 posts in this topic

For the life of me I can't seem to figure out how to acess the defrost heating elements. I have done troubleshooting of the system and the timer is running ok but the heating element shows open with my trusty DVM. I've looked all over the freezer compartment for a way to remove the inside to access the elements and believe the only way is  to remove the lower compartment door and moulding.. Any suggestions...:(
