Need thermistor part number help
« on: February 12, 2020, 03:04:18 PM »

Looking for help in locating correct freezer thermistor part # for Sears refrigerator model number. 596.72002015. I've exhausted nearly all resources in trying to locate this part number. Sears says they can't help me. That I need a part number. I need your help. On the component specification sheet it gives it's following values. 2700 ohms @ 77 degrees f,  7964 ohms @ 36 f and 23,345 @ 18 degrees V. Every exploded diagram and parts sheet I've looked at does not list this part. Thermistor located on outside wall of evap cover. Any help would be much appreciated.

thanks Jdm. Yes taking an educated guess you would think that that is the right part number, but it's not. The ohm value is way out of range. . An update on this Is calling for part number w10316760. I ended up taking the thermistor cover part number and going to RCcom and looking for related parts. And this is what I found. . This is a clip on evaporator thermistor, which is odd, but that's what is calling for. It goes on to say, go to service matters for install instructions which are pretty worthless. So it's going from a wall mount to an evaporator clip on. Go figure . Oddball refrigerator. What a headache. Hope this helps somebody else in the future.

Yeah i was looking at this yesterday for at least 40 minutes. Found the fresh food thermistor was part of the harness. Here! https://partsdr.com/part/w10273869-wire-harness
The one you put in is right! I know some other models to that they will be built it into the harness and you have to do a deep dive for them.Harness of coarse is more money. They donít make it easy nowadays! Found this in formation in attachments below!

Hey, thanks a lot Dab. No, they do not make it easy today. I spend some time 6 to 10 hours a week researching and studying.
