The evaporator keeps freezing up on my frige. What could be the problem?
Answer Hello Wendell. It sounds like you may have a defrost problem with the unit. Check and see if there is any frost build up on the back wall of the freezer. If so, you will need to test the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. They should read closed for continuity when cold. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. I will include a link at the end to assist you how to use the multi-meter if needed. If both parts are good, you will need to replace the defrost timer. Once the problem is repaired, you will need to thaw out the ice on the coils before the unit will operate properly. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Where is the Defrost Timer located and how do I get to it?
Answer Hello Bob,
Most of these are mounted in the back, on the opposite side of the refrigerator from the water inlet valve. you will see the heads of the two screws that mount the timer and a hole in the middle of the two screws. The hole is where you reach through to advance the timer. If you remove the two screws, the timer is easily removed from behind the cabinet edge.

With the defrost timer removed from unit, I dont have continuity between terminals 1 and 3. Is timer bad?
Answer Hello Marc. Turn the timer 68233-3 until it clicks. If the contacts still read open, the timer 68233-3 is bad and will need to be replaced. Hope this helps.
