I have replaced the thermostat and the control board and checked the heater for continuity as well as putting 120v through it and it got hot and melted ice but they do not want to work together. The freezer still ices up after several days. What now?

Using your recommendations I tested my Fridge's thermostat to be not working. I then purchased a Whirlpool 12001937 thermostat for from another reseller as I'm in Canada. The new thermostat does not show continuity when immersed in a glass of ice water (I tried every few minutes for half an hour). Should I send it back? Install it anyways? Thanks for the help, now I know to purchase from your site in the first place...

This is a follow up question on my KitchenAid Bottom freezer fridge. I followed the steps you suggested and tested the defroster thermostat. It was ok. The fridge worked fine a for a few days after I turned the freezer off. It is now frosted up again blocking the cold air flow to the upper fridge. Could it be the defrost heater (same as the evaporator heater?). How does one get access to the defrost heater to test it? Is it from the back of the freezer? If this is not the problem, what could it be? One of the other thermostats? Thank you again for your suggestions.
