2 Red wires come off that terminal. one runs to the thermostat and the other runs to the condensor fan.

i've tried that. that's what is so weird about this. the only way i can get that timer to start running is if it's connected to the pink and i switch it into defrost. it's unbelievably frustrating.

 

I'm going to be on the road today, so i'll connect it to the black, make a mark on the timer wheel and just let it go today and see what happens. thanks - will report back later!

Last week I had posted about my ET20NK fridge where the freezer is plenty cold but the fresh food area is warm.

 

since then and with alot of advise from this site, here's what i've done:

-replaced defrost timer

-replaced defrost thermostat

-confirmed that the defrost system works fine now

-checked the vent that adjusts the airflow from the freezer to the fresh food area

-completely melted every bit of frost/ice out of it - I left it unplugged for 2 days in the garage

-now it's been plugged in again for 2 days and the freezer is at 5 degrees, but the fridge will only get down to about 55 degrees.   There is plenty of air blowing into the fresh area, btu the temp just won't get down to where it should.

 

The initial problem was that the timer wasn't working and the vent was competely plugged with ice. could something else have been damaged and now the cooling capacity of the system is no longer what it needs to be?

 

I'm lost as to where to look next. Thanks

Hummm, with the freezer at 5* does not sound like a sealed system problem, have you checked the return air vent to be sure it is not blocked???
