Temperature not low enough, frost build up on coils
Defrost fan was not coming on, extreme frost build up on coils in freezer compartment. For troubleshooting purposes, bypassed thermostat to see if fan would work. Just cut wires and wire nut them together. Fan worked OK so figured the thermostat was bad. Considered the defrost timer, but it was working OK as I could see it advancing, and there was voltage to the thermostat. (120vac) Anyway, once I received the new part, it simply just plugs in to the existing connectors. The test connector has to be pushed through the back access hole, which is sealed by a flexible putty, make sure to get it sealed good, its re-usable. Only had to remove two pannels, the one on back and the lower one in the freezer compartment, all you need is a 1/4" socket for both. Repair was easy, but it will take some time for the temp to come down. Very important- make sure you clip the thermostat to the coil or you will not cool properly, this is so that the temperature transfer can take place, the cold air is not enough to do it.
