This SxS had the evaporator completely frosted over. It's the SxS type with the infrared indoor ice system. The defrost heater tested closed so that is ok
Can I get some tips on how to check the defrost thermostat:

Or the main board:

I'm assuming it's got to be one of those two. Can someone tell me how put the unit into defrost mode or diagnostic mode so I know which parts has failed?
Many thanks in advance !

hhmmm ..
no tech sheet,
but from (maybe similar) GC1SHAXMQ00 service manual

Defrost can be initiated by disconnecting and reconnecting power.
Main control board will attempt to initiate defrost upon restart:
• If bimetal is closed, defrost cycle will start.
Relay on main control board will click one time.
• If bimetal or defrost circuit is open, defrost cycle will not start, and the cooling cycle will begin.
Relay on main control board will click twice
(once to initiate defrost and the second time to switch back to cooling).

there's also a Fuse inside the Defrost Thermostat :woot:

Thank you for the valuable information! Interesting that no one has this defrost thermostat in stock. (wondering if this is a common failure part as I'm not familiar with this unit)
I am going to pull it apart and see if I can test the fuse... Thank you agin for the instructions on starting the defrost cycle and other helpful info!
