This unit is frosting up on the evaporator coils from top to bottom. The heater works because I used the voltage from the light bulb connectors to turn it on and defrost. The defrost thermostat works because it has continuity. So I swapped out the defrost board. 1 month later the same thing. Why me? I'm thinking freezer control. Because the damper at the top was wide open so the cold control should be fine. I asked the customer if the unit runs continuously and she doesn't think so.

The adaptive defrost control adjust to refrigerator door open use.
To test the ADC and heaters,access the ADC.
Place a amp meter over one incoming power wire on the power supply cord.
Make a small insulated jumper wire and jump L1 to Test terminal.
This will initiate defrost.

...Make a small insulated jumper wire and jump L1 to Test terminal.

first try:
To Force Defrost: Turn cold control on and off 3 times within 6 seconds.
