If that terminator(defrost disc) looks a bit swollen, it has failed. The only way to test it is to put it in a freezer and wait a few hour so that it will be under 25F.
Them terminator typically close contacts at 25f to allow for defrost heat and open at 50f to keep from damaging the ice box.

The disc did not look defective , but looks can be deceiving . My boss went by today and looked in the inspection hole in the freezer and said that the center coils were slightly frosty and the refrigerator was cool ,but he wasn't able to take the temp readings though. I'm not 100% sold that it's fixed although he is . Perhaps I can recheck Monday to find out for sure .
 Thanks Bryan
