Once again thanks for the info! The timer was a bear to get out but I did manage to remove it. It is warm to the touch and on the front of the unit there is a window which shows rapid movement of something. Do either of those observations indicate that it is working? It does not look like the repacement timer part.
ANSWER Hello Jane. If the heater and the defrost thermostat read closed for continuity when cold, the timer is bad and will need to be replaced. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
