Hello and thank you for reading. I have Whirlpool GS6NBEXRB01, a side-by-side fridge with the freezer on the left and fridge on the right, that I got from a friend who got a new fridge for their house. My old garage fridge died a couple winters ago during a particularly cold snap (it went down to like -15F, I think). That's when I learned about garage fridge kits. :stupid:

I'm trying to install the garage kit in the Whirlpool by following vague instructions I found on the internet about finding the thermostat and splicing in the heater, but it turns out I can't find the thermostat. I found a thermistor, then learned what a thermistor is, but I don't think that's what I'm looking for. I DID find instructions on finding the defrost thermostat, but that is in the freezer compartment.

Can anyone help me understand what I should do?

Thanks in advance,

Cliff

Hi Cliff,

Unfortunately, that kit will not work for your model.

Here's our main thread on garage refrigerators: garage refrigerator questions Read what Pegi at Sams says to do in post#8.
