Freezer will not defrost. It will ice up. Put new defrost themostat on still does not work. If you wire direct to the heater the heater will work. The defrost timer works Now what. Got took by the uptown dealer on the themostat paid 50.00 for it and see you can buy it on line a lot less money. Would't go there again.
ANSWER Hello Jnot. The new defrost thermostat needs to be cold before it will work. If the timer is good and the heater is good, then the unit should defrost. If it does not, you will need to replace the timer R0131577. Hope this helps.
