Are you talking about the motherboard installed on the back of the refrig or another board?
Gee, I thought I typed motherboard
Where is the defrost heater relay on this board?
The high voltage stuff is near the bottom where the fewer larger wires connect to it. The low voltage stuff connects near the top of the board where the many smaller wires connect to the board (MOTHERBOARD)
What is the evaporator thermistor and where is it found?
It's the little white thing with white wires clipped to the top left of your evaporator coil. 87% probability this is your defective part. I am a little concerned about your incorrect defrost heater situation. If the amp draw is much greater than the original single heater it could damage your motherboard. Could even take months or years. I've used the wr51x442 to replace a single heater many times on the older models with a timer but never on a GSS.

Motherboard was hot to the touch (see attached pic) where the yellow box is- Is this normal?
Besides that nothing else appeared to be burnt or smell hot.
Thanks for all your help so far.
