210 is to hot?  I am using a thermal-couple on my meter and putting the tip in with the air filter.  I have done this for 15 years and 120-210 is about what I see on all dryers.  So please correct me if I am wrong the the average temp should be about 165 on high.   If you average out 120 and 210 you get 165

It has been 8 days between each of the 3 calls,

My tech is going out today Ill have him check...

  • Dust on the condenser
  • Amp draw on compressor 
  • Amp draw on defrost heater
  • 120v back to the board from the defrost sensor bi metal
  • Evap fan, switches, lights, ice maker
  • triple check for air leaks

 

If all that looks good were going to try a higher temp bi metal.  Based on the info below even if the sensor is to high of a temp it will still work. And in fact it will go in to a default 8 hour 25 min defrost mode. So in theory it will work unless the board had some programming that makes it quite if the sensor never opens.

 

According to the tech sheet after 4 hours of run it defrosts.  

It will try to keep heater on time to 15 m    

It will subtract 1 hour of run time for every 1 minute over 15 minutes of defrost time.  

It will add 1 hour of run time  for every 1 minute under 15 minutes of defrost time.

If the sensor doesn't open it will default in to a 8 hour 25 minute defrost cycle.
