The last time I opened the plastic cover, the evap was indeed frosted up. What do you mean when you say "the heater ohms".

Right now I have the fridge unplugged as I don't know if there may be any harm to the unit.

And wowers! That's a lot for a circuit board! I would really hope that that's not the problem. Can I check some way to see of it is Indeed the circuit board?  Is there Something else that you think might be wrong?

Thanks again!

If all the unit is doing is showing a error code , and is working .It will not hurt running it. The code means there is a heater error. But  if the unit is defrosting it is working.I have replaced quite a few defrost sensors and have had one that the control shorted the new sensor out as soon as it went into defrost.Let the unit run a few days and check if the evap is icing up.

Ok. I will give it try and keep you informed. If it doesn't ice up then does that mean everything is fine ignore the error?

What does it mean if it ices up? The defrost heater is bad?

Thanks

No that your unit is not defrosting, may have shorted the defrost control again.You should get a ohm meter. This will help checking the heater and the defrost sensor.

It doesn't really look normal. I just observed that the black bars on the bottom, under the evap actually heats up. Not to sure if that's supposed to happen or not, but yah.

Thanks again for helping
