For Frigidaire Defrost Thermostat (Part Number: AP2150024)

Frost is building up on the ice dispenser chute. The chute door is closing and I checked this with a light to make sure there was no leakage of light for air to intrude. The parts diagram shows a heater at the door flap. Now too the evaporator core was almost 2/3 a chunk of ice. Does the defrost thermostat control the heater in the door flap area? Also the heater in the evap. showed continuity. So something is causing the evap to freeze up as well as the frost and ice buildup at the ice dispenser chute opening. Once I defrosted the evap, the refrigerator now cycles and the timer is clocking. But I really wonder if I have a multitude of parts that have failed, like the defrost timer, defrost thermostat and the door flap heater. Would the defrost thermostat control the defrost cycles for both the door flap and the evap. heater?

ANSWER Hello John. You need to look for warm air coming into the freezer and causing the issues you are having with the unit.
