Mine is definetly frosting the rear panel in freezer. The bi metal is continuously open and will not close when cold so I know it is bad. When that circuit is open I am getting 78 volts to the plugs for the heater. When I close that circuit by putting the bimetal leads together the voltage to the heater leads drops to 17volts. In either situation the heater will not get warm. Are those the proper voltages and should the heater be getting warm? Also is there a timer or programer of some sort involved? Thanks for your help.
ANSWER Hello Jeff. If the voltage is dropping, you have other issues as well. It may be the timer breaking down, or it could be a wiring issue with the unit. 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
