Ok, i managed to pull some slack and deep it into ice water. It has settled at 15.7K.

Also I have to cut the wires to take the thermistor out to test it.

I measured the thermister right on the evaporator when the freezer was cold. It is 23K-ohm. then I heated up with hair dryer, and went don to 8K-ohm, and started to rise slowly. so is this a good test or I have to isolate it and do the ice water test



also, you said water gets in the thermister and raises the resistance, but the higher the resistance means lower temp on the evaporator, and that should acttualy make the defrost heater stay on longer not make it stop? am I correct?

I have ran the thermistor test (0-7) too and they all pass. should I trust this test response? the board and defrost thermostat is the only thing I replaced.
