Whirlpool Refrigerator
« on: December 23, 2013, 03:15:03 PM »
I really need some help with this. I have a whirlpool refrigerator M# WRT571SMTWOO. Someone has removed the thermistor from the freezer and I can't find a replacement. My parts distributors can't find one on the parts diagram. Also It does not have a traditional Bi-metal/ Termination Thermostat. They seem to be In-line. Is this new? Also I could use a service manual for this.

Why did they remove it and why did you think it was a thermistor?

Not sure why it was removed. I just know its there. There is also no bi-metal. Can you explain.

There is a thermistor on the schematic. One for the refrigerator compartment and one for the freezer. And there is a connector for it. There is not a tradition bi-metal.
