Repaired our refrigerator defrost problem
« on: September 25, 2011, 07:47:58 AM »

Our Whirlpool ED5VBEXTQ00 refrigerator was freezing up in the freezer causing the refrigerator section to get warm.

After doing a lot of reading it seem to be a common defrost problem that a lot of refrigerators have. I defrosted the freezer and check the heater and the thermostat.
They both tested ok so I ordered a new defrost control board, part # W10351625

A couple weeks after replacing the part in our refrigerator it's still running like a champ.

As with many others around the country I'm unemployed. Being able to repair my own refrigerator saved me a lot of money when I need it the most.

Thanks for this awesome site, it very helpful to me.  O0
