whirlpool refrigerator defrost problems
« on: October 14, 2010, 07:54:47 PM »
HI,
MY HEATING ELEMENT IN MY FREEZER HAS BENT UP OVER
THE YEARS AND I THINK IF I BEND IT BACK DOWN WHEN IT GOES INTO THE DEFROST MODE THE HEAT WILL MELT ALL THE ICE WHICH WOULD UNFREEZE THE DRAIN HOLE.
MY QUESTION IS CAN I BREAK SOMETHING MY BENDING THE COPPER PIPE DOWN TO ITS NORMAL STRAIGHT POSITION??
THANKS TO ALL WHOM COULD HELP ME..
