Hi Priscilla, thanks for the links. I have read through them and I'm pretty much back to where I started. The defrost thermostat (part # 12001937), which I admit I never tested prior to replacing as I would have needed to cut the wires. I've tested the defrost heater and it's reading 35 ohms. The defrost timer appears to be advancing properly (turning on and off the compressor), but when the compressor turns off the defrost heater never gets hot to melt the build up of frost. Please let me know what I need to replace or test.

Thank you for your question. It appears you have done a nice job of checking this. If the heater is reading the resistance listed, it should be ok. Now, when the new thermostat was replaced, did you allow the unit to run for several hours before checking the defrost cycle again? It will take awhile for the new thermostat to close. If the heater still won't come on when the timer is advanced into the defrost cycle, a voltage check will need to be made. Be very careful when making this type of check and do not disconnect any wires. First check to see if there is voltage to the thermostat. Check both sides of the thermostat wires to ground. If there is voltage on both sides and the element is not heating, the element will need to be replaced. If there is no voltage to the thermostat, the timer will need to be replaced and if there is voltage to only the one side of the thermostat, it will need to be replaced again. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further.

Hi Scott, this information is very helpful. I did not let the unit run for several ours after replacing the defrost thermostat - after plugging the unit back in I immediately advanced the the defrost time and verified the defrost heater did not come on . I'll re-confirm if the defrost heater comes now that the unit has been plugged in and running for more than 24 hours. I have another question for you in the mean time. If I wanted to be lazy and skip all the voltage tests, could I just replace all possible failure points (i.e. defrost timer, thermostat, and heater) to get the defrost working again? Or is possible that there could be another failure point I would need to test and/or replace to guarantee it'll work? Thanks, Erik

Erik, the three parts listed are all there is to the defrost system, except for the wires. Replacing these parts would correct the problem unless it turned out to be a wiring problem. However, if you check it now that the thermostat has had a chance to cool down and close, it may be working now. I hope this helps you.
