Nice pix, thanks for posting 'em!
If anyone is in the same boat as me and they are thinking of doing a defrost I recomend the following.
1. Move all food to a new location.
2. Increase the fridge temp until the display says OFF.
3. Open the fridge and freezer doors up.
4. Now wait??
I also recomend accessing the back of the fridge and finding the drain.
The drain feeds into a tray in the back of the fridge. I recomend rerouting that line to a bowl or pan. Let the fridge drain into that rather than the back of the fridge tray.
While you are there, clean away any dust you see on the coils.
(I'll try and post a pic...may make more sense)
During the defrost I noticed that when the freezer door was open, the evap fan would run. If I shut the door, the fan would shut off. I'm guessing this is expected when the fridge is OFF, and defrost "mode" is needed.
After I defrosted the freezer, the fan stop running.
Anyways, I came home from work and temps were 0, 38F. And the evap fan was off.
Looks good so far, but I won't know if I have a defrost issue until it builds up again.
Like I said... it appears to be running great. But if I still have a defrost issue, it may not show for sometime. I will inspect my thermodisc, heater element...etc,etc.
I will report my findings, and pics to help explain what I can!
