A few months ago i noticed the refrigerator side was not cooling, the temp. was up to 65 .. the freezer however was frozen and fan was running. I removed everything and unplugged and let it completely thaw as there was a substantial amount of ice build-up on coils in back of freezer. After that the refrigerator started cooling properly. NOW a few months later the same thing and the coils etc. behind panel on freezer side are all froze up again. I was told a common problem is this DEFROST HEATER not working, is that a correct assumption? Thanks for any help

ANSWER Hello Todd. You will need to test the heater and the defrost thermostat 5303917954. They should read closed for continuity when cold. If either one is open, replace that part. If they test good, you will need to replace the defrost timer 215846602. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
