A:

Thank you for choosing ManageMyLife.com. I understand how important it is to be able to diagnose and repair the timer on your refrigerator. Please see the image below. It appears that your defrost timer is located near the compressor which is behind the refrigerator.
SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.
