I am replacing the Adaptive Defrost Control. I ordered the part with the LED, put its going to take a couple of days to get here. Meanwhile, the fridge runs continuously. Will this fry anything? Should I pull the plug every so often?

Is the evaporator coil all frosted up ? if so, you gonna need to defrost that even if the ADC is tha cause to restore proper function. "ASSUMING" your model # is MSD2756GES

Sorry, typing too fast. It is an MSD27567GES. It has all the signs of the ADC failure. This happened many years ago and I replaced it with an OEM 61005988. I got a warm fridge, frost/ice on the coils.

How about letting it run continuously until the part arrives? Do I or don't I?

It would be best to turn it off.
It has to defrost anyway.
I hope it is the ADC and not the defrost terminator.

Just wanted to close this out. Replace the ADC with the newer version and all is well.
