I have already upgraded the drain on the unit. Now the unit is icing up again and my not be going into defrost mode.
I have preformed all the diag on the unit and all pass. The only area I haven't done is the forest defrost.
I have done a ohm meter check on the heating element and the ohms reads 28 ohms warm.

You likley have a bad Jazz board based on the model and age, but open the refrigerator doors, Hold the light switches down and press the Refrigerator TEMP DOWN button 3 times then release the light switch and you should see F and D in the displays. If you do press the refrigerator TEMP DOWN button 2 more times and it should be in defrost mode. See if the heater starts to heat after a minute or so. If you are not sure put some ice on the calrod heater to see if it melts or sizzles. If it does you have a bad main control board and need to change it out. If it does not heater either the heater is bad, the defrost thermostat that is clipped to the top right corner of the evaporator is burned out(Open Circuit) or possibly a modular connector to the heater is corroded. Check all those things with your meter to determine which is bad if the heater does not come on when in forced defrost mode.
