Defrost termination switch, defrost thermostat, defrost limit.

No. That initiates defrost.

Hmm, I can't seem to find that part in the repair parts list. Nothing with the word termination and only "Timer, Defrost" for the word defrost. I guess I will defrost and manually search for the part.

You could have an electronic timer in which case you would not need the bimetal.

I found a thermostat located inside the ice maker (p/n 627985). It wasn't the same style as the ones referenced above. I am going to test it to see if it is good before I buy it. Does that control the freezer/refer as well?

Could the "electronic timer" be called the "Timer, Defrost"? How would I test this item?

It isn't going to be in the ice maker. It will be clipped onto the evaporator. You have to remove the back panel inside the freezer compartment.

You gotta BSing me. This thread is over a month old and you can't/don't want to seem to follow any instruction that's been given.

I think it's an awful big leap going from the freezer to the ice maker and even bigger assumption that you think we will swallow it.

judging by your inability to locate parts in plain sight I think the OP should call a Pro.

With out the right tools and instruments the OP can't do anything.

And any of the methods we pros use to jump out suspect parts would be dangerous for the OP.

NO I am not BSing you. I have appreciated all your and everyone elses help so far. These parts are NOT in plain site I had locate them on the parts sheets then take apart various thing in the fridge to find them. And what directions have I not, or as you say, don't want to follow? You know what, don't answer that. When it becomes this much of a problem for you to help someone out who obviously doesn't know about these things it is no longer help. Thanks again for your willing help in the past. bluefitness thank you very much for the information.

.......a defrost termination control..btw make darn sure the coils under the box are clean , nothing kills a unit faster than plugged condenser coils . they may not look too bad but they are deep and get plugged which causes your operating pressure to go through the roof , kill the cooling , and shorten the life of the frige. also check if u have a little door between the freezer that the thermostat operates for 'fridge cooling . the 'door' should change position in response to the 'stat command.........Jack

Bluefitness you hit it right on the money. It was the thermostat connected to the copper line down in the freezer. The manual did not mention or show this thermostat at all. The fix was easy and cheap. Once I had the part out I could see it had expanded and cracked open. I simply connected the new one and clipped it back on the line. No more problems - thanks again to all.

Take a real good slow look at the manual it's there somewhere just hard to see.

Also look at the wiring diagram on the back of the refrigerator it will show it there also.

Like I said: in plain sight and you still could not see it?

I sure hope you don't work at NASA...
