I should invent a replacement kit to swap over these things back to tried and true controls. After all the basic config is the same.

Did we consider a defective cold control. Personally I've never seen an electronic defrost fail and stay in defrost mode. I find that the relay on these boards are usually the component that fails, specifically the coil on the relay( the only mechanical part). I would jumper the cold control first to check.

Sorry didn't realize it was electronic controlled, what about a faulty thermistor? Hate to see people pay for circuit boards before everything else is ruled out.

I provided the tech sheet for just that very reason. There is no excuse for shotgunning parts when they can be identified as bad. Also, don't forget that Repairclinic allows returns if the part does not solve the problem, so there is no real risk.
