Ihave a whirlpool EHT171TKWR3 top freezer model. When I ordered the replacement defrost timer the instructions say this timer replaces several different types of timer and the instructions are different depending on which one I'm replacing. How do I determine which type I'm replacing? It could be 24 12 10 or 8 hr continous run or cumulative run

I believe on page 3 of instructions( counting the cover ) there is pictures of the 2 most common configurations. By looking at your original timer, and the wire colors and positions, you can match to your machine. Match the colors of the four wires to the drawings.

Basically, you need to know if you put the black lead on the new timer on terminal 1 or terminal 2.

Thanks for the quick reply. I went ahead and took the old
one out and it had a sticker on the side that said what it was.

Thanks
Joe
