Normally with heater or not defrosting  you would check out heater from the board itself while it is install.By using the attachment I just sent you.Also this checks out the heater and safety thermostat .That is in series with the heater .iIf the safety is open you will have a bad heater or thermostat with checking off the board.

This is the safety thermostat on the evaporator.This must have continuity.Good luck.

Thanks for the help.  I am going to check the board now.  I also ordered one of the defrost controls as well so we will see.  The shotgun approach sometimes works but I would really rather know exactly which component has gone. :thankyou:

I did the continuity test on the main board.  It read 20.9 ohms.  So from the document you posted this sounds normal.  So does this point to the main board being the only problem?

This is a follow up and a closure on my problem.  I replaced the board and replaced the heater since it was black even though the resistance was within normal specifications and replaced the Temp thermistor and the defrosting thermistor.  I did that on Saturday.  The temperature was holding well and there was no frost build up on the back panel.  The temp in the freezer would range from below 0 to around 20 deg F.  This would make sense for the defrosting to be working right.  I checked Monday night to see how it was doing and I could see water in the drain area and it was freezing over.  Everything is working very well.  I am not sure if I needed to replace all that I replaced but I figured it was the best and wisest thing to do and hopefully I will get another 7 or 8 years out of it before any of these parts go again.  Of course there are other things that could go as well in the mean time but I think the cooling part should continue to operate.

Here is another question.  Does anyone take the old boards and trouble shoot them and replace the failed parts?

You did everything the right way.That heater and safety or high limit thermostat is suppose to replace when one or the other goes bad.Meaning both should to be replace.Thermistor is a cheap part so you did that right also.There are companies  that rebuild boards but with the G.E board better to buy a new one.
