That was my thought also. I have those in my shopping cart. I will place the order now after your suggestion. It looks like they are easier to replace than to test. I will reach out after i get them and are ready to install..Thank you for all your help so far.

Great thanks. The evaporator is already defrosted completely. Where is the air return port? The refrigerator is unplug and will be until i i get the parts. I was also looking for the defrost thermostat? In the videos it says it is on the evaporator and i could not seem to find it. Must be these old eyes

The air return port should be on the right sidewallof the freezer near the bottom of the evaporator. There should be a corresponding hole or vent somewhere on the left sidewall of the fresh food section about 3/4 of the way down. Sometimes you can see th e light from the ff section if you look near the bottom right of the freezer section.

there looks like a vent about half way up just inside of the door jam. Would that be the return air port? i will have to look tonight when i get home for the Defrost Thermostat? I am looking at the picture I took yesterday. It looks like the replacement Defrost Thermostat does not have wire clips on it. Should i cut off the old clips and solder or is there a better solution to connect?

Regardless, the limit on the assembly as well as the stand alone limit has a built in clip

Thank you sir! Unfortunately i already ordered the separate parts and looks like rather than wait for the new one I will go ahead and splice. I did find the Defrost thermostat so I am going to splice it before the connection clip. What is the your recommended method to splice the two wires?.

That is an easy splice. i thought i read somewhere to solder and then use the heat shrink connectors. This is much easier. Thanks.

I cannot find the defrost Timer inside the FF compartment. Is it any where else on my model?

I just found the Defrost Timer. Disregard the last post.

Ok, I got the parts today and installed them. I just plugged in the refrigerator and nothing happened accept the lights went on. Any thought at all?
