My Fridge / Freezer started getting very warm. But, the compressor and condenser fan were operating. I chose the defrost timer from the Parts Select suggested list. I took it apart and noticed the contacts were in bad shape. I validated this with my DVM meter. By checking continuity across the contacts while turning the timer knob. I also used my meter to check for 115 VAC across the 2, 1 connections.. As you turn the timer knob, you'll hear a click. This should close the contacts and connections 4,3 should power up the evap fan. I also pulled the evap fan and powered it up on my test bench. I did this just to validate the timer was the problem. So, if you have a running compressor and condenser fan. Check the contacts on the Defrost timer located under the front grill of your unit with a DVM. There is a small gear motor that runs the timer. Don't be fooled by the fact it's running. If the contacts are toast, replace the timer unit. Total time to fix the problem should be 15 mins. tops.
