Sears/Inglis defrost timer noise / Questions
« on: September 14, 2022, 11:34:00 AM »

Hi
Sears/Inglis model LT74182 refridgerator, 17 cubic feet, top freezer, 1983

I noticed that the defrost timer is making some noise.  It is sort of a tap  tap  tap, sound of gears and or motor running.  It is not excessively loud.
The defrost timer works as I get a bit of water in the evap tray underneath, and I did mark the knob on the timer with a dot if white out and it does turn.
This is the 3rd timer, as the first was replaced under wsrranty, 2nd maybe 20 years ago.
Defrost timer has numbers on it  K99A61,  old paper work says 8 hour  26 minutes  cycle

1.)   Should I replace it or let it go as it works?  It is not too noisey and the fridge is in the basement. (If it is not broke, don't fix it?   LOL )

2.)   I cannot find a K99A61 timer ...  if need be.

Thanks

You can use electrolux 5303917634 or gp21. Same. There about 10 or 15 dollars on ebay. 8 hour run 21 minute defrost. 2ill 2o4k just as good as 26 minutes. This timer has a flying lead, also comes with instructions. Simple.
