I agree, you haven't ruled out defrost failure... takes forever for the system to defrost just by turning off the power. And yes, they are a bear to work on..

I suggest checking the evap thermistor reading at the mainboard as well as testing the defrost heater/bimetal at the main board prior to turning power off or opening doors for extended periods... it will affect your testing.

If evap thermistor shows that it is much warmer than the compartment thermistor, then evap thermistor may be the cause of a defrost failure. If defrost system circuit is open, then heater/bimetal failure.

If you have already kept doors open and turned freezer off for an extended period of time and things start to cool down to normal, then you can rule out sealed system and you are back to test thermistor, heater/bimetal and if they check out.. you may need a heated drip pan assembly .... and on this machine, replacing any of those, is a real pita.

Could be a sealed system failure but did you check for frost/ice buildup on the evaporator? Did you test/replace evap thermistor? These things should definitely be checked prior to replacing expensive boards yet you made no mention of it.

Lol, Don't feel bad, usually the hardest part of a repair that I've never done before is how to disconnect the @#&*! molex connectors. Heck, I even have problems with connectors on repairs Ive done previously. Unfortunately, I can't help you with this one except to provide some solace... ie misery loves company.

please forgive me but trying to understand.... completely dead... you mean just the tv? Is the refrigerator working? If so, and if your only problem is the tv, from what I see the only available part for the monitor assembly is the power control module... at least as depicted on the parts diagram .... the rest is either not serviceable or parts unavailable....
