My freezer seems to run continuously and it ices up quickly. The thermostat for the fridge side shuts off the compressor when turned down very low, so I don't think it's the cold control assy. Am I right in assuming it may be the cam assy? Thanks.

Don W. for Model Number ED5GTG

ANSWER Hello Don. It sounds like you may have a defrost problem with the unit. Check and see if there is any frost build up on the back wall of the freezer. If so, you will need to test the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. They should read closed for continuity when cold. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. I will include a link at the end to assist you how to use the multi-meter if needed. If both parts are good, you will need to replace the defrost timer. Once the problem is repaired, you will need to thaw out the ice on the coils before the unit will operate properly. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
