Hi, Thank you for using justanswer for your appliance questions!





To force it into defrost, there is a 3 wire (black, blue & brown) connection plug on the mother board on the back of the unit.

Unplug the fridge, unplug the connection from the mother board, jumper the brown & blue of the female connection, plug the fridge back in. Given a good heater and a closed defrost bi-metal, it should defrost. This unit has a glass heater that you can usually tell if it is bad just by looking at it -- blackened like a bad light bulb...

This unit also susceptible to bad connections at the heater and a bi-metal susceptible to moisture (popping open). Between the heater, the connections to the heater, and the bi-metal.

I did not find a manual but there are manuals for sale at:
