I am working on a Samsung RB215LASH refrig. that had frosting issues in freezer section. Traced out problem to an open thermal fuse, replaced fuse and then the defrost heater would stay on even when compressor is running. Replaced main board but still have 120v. to heater when compressor is running. Checked for grounded heater, but it's ok. Does anybody have any ideas?

I checked the voltage at the heater harness plug in the freezer w/ the heater unplugged (brown to red wire at thermal fuse). I didn't check directly at the board terminals.

... w/ the heater unplugged
all voltage measurements should be made with the devices connected
unless otherwise directed
