Ok sorry for the wait. The accept answer link is now available. Wheather you think my answer is helpfull is up to you. I am sorry but it is not one that will help you to repair the unit yourself.

After looking over the documentation for your unit, I see that it is one of the more complex units to diagnose. It incorporates a bi-metal temprature sensor, a timer, the usual heating element, and a mechanical dampener system.

All of these systems and componants must work properly for your system to operate correctly.

When I was still doing refrigeration repairs in the field (before the EPA recovery regs went into effect) I did my best to avoid these units, as more times than not they were troublesome to diagnose correctly.

It is for this reason that I suggest that you have a technician check your unit.

I consider myself a pretty good teacher, and could walk you through the repair of many appliances, but not this unit.

Best, THS
