Manufacturer Part Number WR55X10025The temperature sensor, also referred to as a thermistor, is used to monitor the refrigerator and freezer internal temperatures. The sensor is a small capsule like device that is protected by a white plastic casing. The sensor sends the temperature reading to the control board, which uses this information to turn on the compressor and fan circuits. If this part is malfunctioning it may inaccurately signal the control board to turn off these components, resulting in warmer than normal temperatures in the fresh food and freezer sections. This part can break from material fatigue through normal use, and will need to be replaced when this happens. You will find this part attached to the evaporator and control housing in your appliance. This OEM part measures roughly 1.25 inches with 18-inch long wire leads. For this repair, you will need a 1/4 inch nut driver, a pair of strippers and crimpers, and a pair of wire splice connectors.

Manufacturer Part Number 6931EL3003DIf your dryer is not turning on, or not heating up, there could be an issue with your thermal fuse. This OEM fuse is designed to act as a high-limit thermostat, and will turn off the heating element in your dryer if the appliance overheats. It does this by cutting off power to the dryer. If the fuse has blown, it will need to be replaced as they cannot be reset. You can test the fuse with a multimeter, and should receive a reading of 0 ohms of resistance if the fuse is still good. A common reason for a dryer to overheat is if the air vents are blocked, as the hot air is contained in the dryer causing the fuse to blow. Be sure to keep your dryer filter and vents clean of lint and other debris to prevent this from happening.
