Ken, it is common for the freezer compressor relay to stick on these models. In this scenario, the compressor runs all the time, even during defrost. The end result is an evaporator encased in ice. To test the relay, push the on/off button on the control panel to shut the unit down. Listen for the freezer compressor. If the compressor continues to run, then the control board should be replaced.

There is an air damper located in the top of the fridge behind the light covers. Remove the damper and check to is if it is physically broken. If so, you have found your problem.

Thank you
Is there a specific way to test the radiant heater?

You can use an ammeter to check the amp draw. If each oven works by itself, but not together, the first thing to check is to make sure the connections in the junction box are clean and tight.

These types of burners generally use a hood type of orifice. There is a pin behind the orifice. When you tighten down the orifice, the pin restricts the flow of gas. For LP, these hood orifices should be tightened down to their limit.

Grab an ohm meter and ohm each wire in the disconnected harness to ground. Based on the damage, it looks like the pillar heater circuit is shorted to ground.
