Have the evaporator exposed. It is again frosting over after only two days. Very light coating. It appears to me that the defrost heater and thermodisc are wired together. Red and black from the control board, then split into three, red, black and orange. Do I test at the plug for continuity? If so, I have continuity when they are cold. Does this mean they're good? Could the temp sensor on the evaporator be bad and causing this?

There is also a temp sensor on the condenser line. Could it be bad or contributing to this as well? Once defrosted it cools right down and works great.

Fridge was warm. Replaced the temp sensor in the fridge. Didn't help. Found the back wall of freezer coated in frost. Removed the panel to find condenser iced over. Defrosted it with a hair dryer, put it all back together and it worked great for a couple of weeks. Back of the freezer frosted up again so I watched the fridge closely for a few days and sure enough the fridge got warm again. Defrosted again with hair dryer to buy a little time. Could the thermodisc cause this? How would I go about testing the defrost heater? I don't like taking a $177.00 guess.
