I've inspected this refrigerator that is clearly not defrosting. the heating element tests good and so does the defrost t-stat switch. I'm assuming that this unit needs this new control board (as it does not have a stand alone timer). Does this sound accurate?

Oh, I also tried depressing the light switch 6 times to manually enter defrost mode. This was unsuccessful.

Thanks in advance

JT

Yep, on this box, if the def. heater, def. tsat, and wiring are good, then the only thing left if the Genesis board by default.
