Now there is an idea. What temp gun do you have? Most of them I have seen already come with a soft holster type case. Not that I have seen a lot of them or anything ha. Would guess I have mostly seen Flukes.
It does come with a soft sided case. But, not a good one.

We left for the afternoon, came back and everything was nice and cold.  Everything i've checked seems to check out.  I"m not sure where to go from here.  Sears wants another $100 to come out and tell me whats wrong after I told the guy the last time that I didnt think it was the PCB board.

Is there a way to check that 3 way valve a guy was talking about earlier?  Or is that part of the sealed system and I'll need special tools for that?

Well here is a first for me. Last night I decided to create a 3d drawing of a post-it note holder I have sitting on my desk and upload it to Thingiverse, just for practice.

This afternoon I get a email notification that someone has made one of them. So I go back to Thingiverse to check it out and there is a photo posted of the one another member made from my drawing! Now I think that's really neat!

Here is a drawing I did this weekend for a CR2 battery holder. I have been wanting one of this style for a few years now. The company that makes this style ( http://www.storacell.net/) battery holder does not make one for the CR2 batteries. I even email them years ago asking them to consider making one. Well fast forward a few years and they still have not made one, but I now have the skills and tools to make one myself. :)

So many possibilities.

Looking at that diagram further i do see they are taking about 240 volts which they would  not be in the USA.Makes me believe you can use it and you must have something wired wrong if your not getting voltage to that fan motor to ground because it is coming straight through the cold control.And also on that diagram now i see at top 230 volts so it must be right.Double check the wiring is all i can say.maybe some else can jump in here because i have to go now.

appreciate your advice so far, as a last resort I have ordered a new defrost thermostat, if the evap fan does not run I will have to scrap the fridge which will be a shame!

Still digging around. Sure enough, after we opened things up last night and cleaned out the ice again, we powered back on and the R-FAN was reading 9V! So perhaps the 0V we were seeing yesterday was with all the ice/frost build-up. The other two fans C/F are still 9V, so all three fan motor/circuits appear fine.

Did some more measurements on the circuit board for the various sensors
R1 (R-SENS): refrigerator ambient/temp sensor was ~2.8V or ~34F
F-SENS: freezer temp sensor was ~3.9V or ~-8F

R-DEF-SENSOR: still 0.9V, when expected is 2-4V
F-DEF-SENSOR: ~2.2V

It sure points to the defrost sensor being the culprit.

With regards to that evaporator assembly cover, I've been reading around, but still not sure if it includes the fridge temp sensor. In the parts diagram/list, it seems to suggest it's installed in the upper cover, or ASSY COVER-MULTI REF (#4). The evaporator assembly cover is ASSY COVER-EVAP REF (#3). In the parts list, the temp sensor is listed as #4-2, so I suspect it may be part of the upper cover rather than the lower evaporator cover:

Thats the problem that wiring diagram may not apply to your model.But sometimes on this refrigerator they maybe one on the back side of the box.

Checked every where, no where to be found, looking at the manual you provided the wire you are referring to which you are not familiar with is item no 12325101 in the document
