I'm working on a fridge model eb9shkxvq. Would it hurt to put a frigidaire defrost thermostat on a whirlpool refrigerator?

You mean this ==> Defrost Thermostat?

Nah, they're all made by the same company in China anyway. All that really matters is that 1) it's in roughly the same temperature operating range and 2) that it mounts on the evaporator coil correctly and reliably.

the thermostat I have says L47-22F. Does that mean open at 47 and above and closed at 22 and below? The tech sheet I have on the fridge says the thermistat should be open at 42 and above and closed at 12 and below. Is the thermostat I have close enough?

It means it will open at +47F and above and will stay open until the bimetal in there feels +22F. Once closed, the contacts won't open until the bimetal feels +47F.

Defrost bi-metals are rated just like dryer t-stat bi-metals. L47-22 means open above +47F and close at 25F, the second number is a differential just like in dryers, (IE: L155-20 surely doesn't close at 20F now does it? NO, opens at 155F and close when temp drops back down to 135F).
