Anything with the word Elite on it I would not have. Crappy is the word that comes to mind. A lot of them elite products are made in Korea by the old Goldstar brand which changed its name to LG.
This unit came with the house when I purchased it a year ago - so far the ice maker died and I have had to manually defrost the freezer a couple of times. I would love to replace it with something that it similar (top-mount, filtered water dispenser, ice maker in freezer) and near affordable, but with all the brands out there I have no idea what to get if I do end up replacing the unit.
When I get the replacement thermistors and open up the unit this weekend, I'm hoping just to find a couple of bad thermistors. I kinda wish the problem was easier to diagnose, really. I still can't find a service manual that accurately tells me about the diagnostic test and LED read-outs.
