Hello, Our GE refrigerator was not getting cool. The freezer was working. The evaporator coils were frosted over. I happened to have a new defrost heater on hand so I used my multimeter and checked for continuity. I replaced the heater and that seemed to be one of only a few issues. I'm not sure if I should now check the defrost thermostat or defrost limiter or what to do as a next step. Any help is appreciated. Thank you, Bryan

ANSWER Hello Bryan. The thermostat should read closed for continuity when cold. Then check and see if the main board is sending power and going into the defrost cycle. 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
