Yes. and I can the hear the compressor running. It doesn't stop running either. I cleaned the Condensor off also. The fan in the back for the condensor doesn't spin as fast as the one for the evaporator. Also I just had a power surge as my house a day before this started happening
No. I don't see any frost anywhere besides the evaporator. Also the compressor gets hot to the touch when the fridge is plugged in after 20 mins and with in the hour the Evaporator starts to frost over.
Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today
Hi this is Bryan. Barry opted out. so the coils were packed with ice ? inside the freezer ? were all the coils frosted or just one section like half?
Yes the Coil and the thermostat are all one piece. Well I Ohmed out the Thermostat that and at room temperature it was 56 Kilo ohms and the coil Ohmed out at 24.4 Ohms. Also the adaptive deforst box I had out and I believe someone already replaced it. It says New on the back of it.
So It should be the thermostat then. It's still sitting at 56K ohms. Which in my opinion would be a lot of resistance. By that movie you shared with me, it sounds like it should be near 0 Ohms of resistance.
I let it run after I talked to you last for and hour and the freezer temp was @ 20 and fridge temp was at 60, but I didn't have the damper spring on the fridge side. I lost it. I already ordered that and the thermostat. but I left that damper door out. So I figured the fridge would just be cold. It's unplugged again bcuz the compress never shut off that day. Would you like me to plug it in over night and check the temperatures in the morning?
is it doing the same thing ? freezing up ? in the freezer behind the panel ?
try clicking the refrigerator section light switch 5 times fast. on some models this will put it in defrost. you'll hear it shut down if it does.
I'll hear the compressor kick out? I tried that and the compressor is still running, but I accidently shorted out one of the white wires on the thermostat and had to reset the breaker. I'll try again later. I was just wondering if there was voltages or anything that I could be checking from the defroster control board.
Sounds good I really apprieate it. I'll talk to you soon.

I'm not sure if this isn't just some random occurance or not but lastnight I did the five times on the light switch for the fridge and a few minutes later the defroster was running and the compressor stopped. I could tell that the evaporator was froster over bcuz the temp in the fridge was getting a little high. So since it did the defrost this morning and afternoon temps back to normal. If the defost adapator was bad becuz it wasn't doing the defrost by itself, but when I do the five times for the light switch and it does go into defrost mode but not everytime could that defrost control module (adaptor) be bad? Sorrya bout my spelling.
