Failure Symptoms: Ice and/or frost buildup on the rear panel or floor inside the freezer, depending on the style and placement of the evaporator coil. Evaporator fan not running in some models.
How to test: Using a multimeter, measure continuity through the thermostat before defrosting. The thermostat must be very cold before it will close the circuit.
If found to have no continuity or the thermostat looks to be expanded or disfigured, it is faulty.
Repair Tip: Some thermostats have plug in style wire connectors. Most will have to be spliced in using wiring connectors. It is recommended to use "pigtail connectors" and seal the connection with silicone after crimping.
