What would be the probable cause for nothing working but the lights?
Answer Michael, You'd want to check a couple of components, The ADC Board W10366605 This controls the power to both the compressor and the defrost system, if the board is faulty or shorted out, etc. Nothing would operate. The next check would be at the Temperature Control 2198202 No "closed" circuit across the terminals means no voltage to the compressor. The interior lights working indicates you have voltage to the refrigerator, but make sure the voltage is in range 108 to 132 VAC, at the outlet and power cord.

Answer Hello Ray,
If the unit has a cumalative defrost system, it will vary as to how often and how long the defrost cycle takes place. It is also changed by how often the unit doors are opened and how long they are kept open.
