Kenmore ColdSpot Model #106.56533400
Yes, I took it out and tested it. I believe the continuity test was 22.
The actual reading on my meter was 022 with no tone on the tone setting for the continuity test.
Yes the fan runs.
I think all the coils were frosted up. They probably all frozen up now.
I did get a tone when its installed and the 022 reading was when I took it out. If that makes a difference.
Also, after I installed both the defrost thermostats I checked the defrost pan and there was water in it. Currently it's dry.
And when you close the freezer side door you can hear it pulling a vacuum and the doors are much harder to open.
If it is defrosting it's not enough because ice freezes up in the bottom of the freezer. But as I said I checked the defrost pan after replacing the defrost thermostats and there was water in the defrost pan so I thought it was fixed. But in 2 to 3 weeks for the ice start building up in the bottom of the freezer.
No, there is no water leak. It's just that ice builds up in the bottom of the freezer side of the refrigerator and we have to manually defrost the refrigerator.
Since I did get some defrosting (water in pan) then the only thing left is the control board.
Do you think that is should re-test anything to make sure? And if so, how?
Is the control board difficult to change out? Anything that I should know? Is there a video that shows how to replace?
I think I'll watch the defrost pan and make sure that it's defrosting some and if it is I will order the control board.
Sorry I'm so slow on working on this but a couple of weeks ago I changed out the defrost thermostat but refrigerator still freezes up. It starts freezing up at the drain hole and then ice builds up in the bottom of the freezer and I'll have to manually defrost in about a month. You can tell when the drain is frozen up because when you close the refrigerator doors it pulls a vacuum. I believe if the drain hole didn't freeze up and would let it drain the refrigerator would be ok. Why would it freeze up at the drain hole in the freezer side? Any ideas on what I should check? Should I give up and call a service tech?
