Model Number: EV171NYMS02
Brand: Whirlpool
Age: 6-10 years

The defrost thermostat in my Whirlpool EV171NYMS02 upright freezer went bad.

Searching the part numbers, the replacement is supposed to be a WP4387501. Link here:

Parts Dr and several others verified that is the correct thermstat.

However, I ordered it and received it, and the mounting bracket is different. The original has a clip that clips the thermostat onto the refrigerant line- looks like the this replacement:

But that thermostat is a different temperature range.

Does anyone know how this new bracket is supposed to mount?

Thanks!
