Interesting, that is the first time I have seen one of them.

Are you going to order one to try?

They sure seem cheap enough.
Let us know what you think of them. If you like them I may get a couple too.

 I always use whatever timer I have on hand regardless of the brand of appliance. The only difference I see is how often they go into defrost. Never had any problems. That $5.99 price is nice. Can you find a universal defrost thermostat at that price?

The great thing about those is they fit nice up in a console behind a cold control.

Working on a free fridge tonight with a bad defrost timer (defrost heater stuck on).  I can see this one is the one I want to add to my "truck stock" list to have a few with me.  Cheap and universal...what's not to like?
