The harness that came with the new replacement defrost board, has connectors to the freezer thermostat control that dosent fit.Is this a bad piece or is there a solution.
You will want to double check the connections to make sure that you have everything connected right. The terminals on the wires should match the thermostat. If the connections are correct then it sounds like the harness is wrong.
Trying to install this and the wiring harness is different. The refrigerater thermostat has four wires, one of which goes to the damper, the new wiring harness has three.
With the redesign of the part they eliminated the wire that would normally go from the thermostat back to the damper motor. This is now routed through the ADC board. You will want to put the black on the left side and green to ground and the other wire to the other outside terminal. Turn on the unit and test it as it may be necessary to move the white/purple to the other terminal.
My freezer is currently only cooled to 40 degrees and not making ice because of temp, it has been mentioned that the defrost timer is stuck on defrost. I think I have located it under the controls in the refrigerator half. It looks like it is a control board, am I correct at position and would anyone agree with assessment? Part number 240554502.
If the unit is shutting down for long periods of time and the fans not running then yes the unit may be getting stuck in defrost. If the unit is constantly running but not cooling and all the fans are running there may be a defrost issue. With defrost failure there will be heavy frost build up on the rear wall of the middle to lower freezer compartment. If this is the case you would want to check the defrost thermostat and heater first. You would do a continuity test and if no continuity then you would replace that part. If both have continuity the control 5303918476 would be at fault.
