I have changed the defrost timer. How do I test the heater?
Answer Hello Kent. You can test the heater with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. It should read closed for continuity. You can also test the defrost thermostat the same way. Hope this helps.

Frost builds up in the freezer. i have replaced the main control board and checked the defrost heater, it's ok. Frost still builds up in the freezer. We manually defrosted the freezer and dried it out and put the old main board back in and it works fine for 3-4 days and then frost builds back up.The compressor and or fan runs continually after it starts to frost up. Don't know what else to do?
You will want to check continuity of the limiter which is the round disk on the evaporator coils for continuity. If there is no continuity then the limiter is defective. Also check the thermistor which is also located on the left rear top of the evaporator for resistance. The resistance should be 42.2K ohms at 0 degrees. This will most likely be the cause for this issue since the heater checks ok.
