Default Defrost thermostat
Model Number: tcx18   Brand: GE   Age: 5 - 10 years

I have a GE profile that I believe has/had a bad defrost thermostat. I replaced the thermostat, but did not wire it in yet. I wanted to se it change state (ohms). My coils are iced over but the switch has not changed states yet. Does it need to be wired in to work correctly? Does it take a while to actuate? Any help would be appreciated. Defrost thermostat wr50x55. Thanks

Looking at the parts description it should close (0 ohms) at 35 degrees F and open (infinite ohms) at 55 degrees F.

Does it need to be wired in to work correctly?
No. I am assuming you are checking it with a meter.

Does it take a while to actuate?
Takes a little while so you will have to hold it on the ice till it gets down to freezing perhaps a couple minutes. Also do not touch the metal face when hold it on the ice.
