How do I test the defrost control board, light switch 6 times 5 sec? Is that how all this boards work? Can I UNPLUG THE BOARD AND SIMULATE A DEFROST BY SHORTING THE PINS INSIDE THE CONNECTOR?

Allan for Model Number JCD2389DES

ANSWER Hello Allan. 1. Disconnect the unit from the power source. 2. Open the fresh food door and remove any items on the top shelf. 3. Remove the light shield and the temperature control housing. 4. Connect the refrigerator to a wattmeter. 5. Make sure compressor is running (cold control closed). 6. Using an insulated number 22 jumper wire short between L1 and Test; this will put the refrigerator into a defrost for approximately 23 minutes. 7. The watt meter should read between 500 to 600 watts depending on the model.
