The frig will run about 12 hours and shut off. I cleaned the coils and everything underneath the frig. The only way I get it to come back on is to mess with temp controls then it runs the time span then shuts off. Do you have any ideas what this could be? Thank you for your time and help.

Kevin for Model Number ed25pqxfw02

ANSWER Kevin, You would want to start with a new cold control 2198202. Sounds like the control contacts aren't functioning properly. causing the unit to run until the defrost timer opens the power circuit and defrosts the evaporator. When you"mess with temp controls" you close the circuit and it runs again until the timer takes over.
