defrost timer location?
« on: December 21, 2010, 11:00:40 AM »

Any idea where this is? it appears it may be behind the ice making stuff in the freezer compartment... Any guidance would be helpful.... also is there a service manual fro this model on the website here? I can't find one specifically for this model.


Model RSW2400EAE

The defrost timer is located inside the refrigerator section. You will find it behind the light shield. Once you remove the light shield you should be able to see the metal housing with the hole in it. The timer is behind that.

I could not locate a service manual for your exact model number.
