 :oops: the freezer works fine. Air is not blowing in the frig. I just brought another thermo located in the freezer. It lasted for 3 weeks. Im back to the frig not getting cold, or the air not blowing in the fridge. There is  ice snow bulding on the bottom panel ofthe freezer. It stll makes ice and water.

So when it stops working and you take the back panel off, does the coil look like someone packed snow in it? Did you the check continuity of the thermostat to determine if it was bad? Is the freezer fan motor running?

I would think that you went with the most popular part in defrost failure, that was NOT bad. Check your heater and defrost circuit.... O0

Continuity through the heater. It seems to have an ADC for defrost. Someone should chime in with test procedures on that..... Did you do any diagnosing or just replace the 'Stat"
