I tested the defrost heater, 20 ohms however would not give me a continuity alarm on my meter and tested the defrost thermostat, it seems to be good. Any ideas what to test next. It seems to to be the common problem, freezer is normal and refrigerator is a little warm. Also is there a way to start a manual defrost. Thanks for the help.

ANSWER Hello Carl. If the heater and the thermostat are good, but the unit does not defrost, you will need to replace the electronic control 2313177. If you turn the unit on and off, 5 times within 10 seconds, it should go into defrost. Hope this helps.
