Hi Bryan, Thanks for the infomation I'm curious though. What does the defrost stat have to do with the last three LED lights in the display lighting up all at once?
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
Well not exactly sure about that to be honest, you said you replaced both so it can't be the boards themselves, did you replace the LED set up what I mean is the LED lights are in one of the boards am I correct? I did look at that part but I'm pretty sure it is, a lot of times the display lights lighting up all at once is a signal there is a problem, an error code, these are famous for bad defrost thermostats on pretty sure that your issue, you can test continuity to it but it needs to be Cold while you do it so you have to leave it on the coils as you do it, you can also check the heater in if you're going that far, both of the should have continuity but the defrost thermostat needs to be cold to have continuity, hope this helps, thanks, Bryan
