Question and Answers


I am trying to diagnose whether or not my Jenn Air JRT1960W refrigerator has a faulty defrost thermostat. Room temprature and freezing showed no continuity.


From the description you give it is likely the defrost thermostat is the problem. It should have continuity when it is cold. Leaving it in the freezer should have got it cold enough to have a circuit with continuity.

With a model number you can get the defrost thermostat at the following link: Sears PartsDirect .

Remember to unplug the refrigerator when replacing the defrost thermostat.
