Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The issue likely lies with the electronic control. When you turn it back on, does the heater come on, too?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No , I have plugged the heater back in . I forced it into a defrost cycle by turning the screw on the timer . I then turned it back . The heater turned off . I also checked continuity on the thermostatic switch on the evaperator coil . it opened when warm and closed when cold . After running for about 1/2 hour i noticed frost forming on only about one foot of coil . Do you think it has a coolant leak ? Today it is cold but wont freeze water.
Expert:  Kelly replied 2 years ago.

Yes, if only a portion of the coil is frosting, the unit is low on refrigerant.
