Go to page 54 in the manual posted by JW to get the ohm resistance values.
Use your meter set for ohms to test each thermistor. Especially the evaporator thermistor.
Also do the Diagnostic test in the manual.

Ohm means use your meter on the resistance settings and check for continuity. Any part that don't "OHM" out (show continuity) is bad or "OPEN" in the appliance lingo.If a part is OPEN then shocktricity cannot travel through and the appliance will be "DEAD". If a part has continuity It's "Good".  O0
