To find a new refrigerator defrost thermostat, search http://www.repairclinic.com/Shop-For-Parts?TLSID=1813 using your appliance's model number.

Is your refrigerator not cooling like it should? Do you have a bad defrost thermostat? This free troubleshooting video shows step-by-step instructions on how to test the defrost thermostat in your refrigerator. The refrigerator defrost thermostat is part of the defrost system that keeps the evaporator coils in your refrigerator from accumulating frost. If the evaporator coils in your refrigerator are freezing over and your refrigerator isn't cooling properly, it is possible that your defrost thermostat is failing.
