My defrost system is not working on my frigidaire frige (PHSC39SSEE3). I changed the thermostat, cold control and the main power board. The heater seems to be good.I checked it and tested 28ohms. I don't know what to do. This model does not use ap5176342. Whats my next step?
ANSWER Sal., You do have a damper assembly 241518501 but thats not the issue at this point anyway. The "new" control 240596704 deetermines when and how often the refrigerator defrosts. With all tghe control components you've replaced, your best bet, would be to start at the defrost heater ans program a "forced defrost" cycle and check for voltage into the heater(check from heater wire to chassis ground) from the control, if you have the voltage, it will confirm a control and wiring issue, or a possible heater failure. Good Luck
