Fridge portion works fine, but seems like freezer doesn't get as cold as it used to. Tried setting temp control to coldest setting but no change. Food does freeze, but not as hard as when the unit was new. Where is the defrost control, and how do I get at the heating element. Thank you.

ANSWER Hello Glenn. The deforst timer 68233-2 is located in the back by the compressor. The heater 60106-35 is located inside the freezer behind the back wall under the evaporator. The defrost thermostat 52085-28 is located on top of the evaporator. The heater and thermostat should read closed for continuity when cold. 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
