Ok guys
spliced new thermistor in place.Does the length of the wire matter?
freezer gets 25 deg and refrigerator holds at 51 deg. is there any test to make the evap. fan to come on? thanks

Maybe I'm coming in on the tale end of this one but to answer your questions from you last post the lenth of thermistor wires do not matter, but your temps. Are off. Freezer should be 0 and frige should be anywhere from 34~49 max (generally 36) so if your freezer doesn't get any colder than it is you have a problem

before the new thermistor the temperature would fluctuate between -6  and +20 in the freezer and 35 to 50 in the fridge.I havent seen the evap. fan run since the new thermistor .

Those are normal fluctuations for your unit depending on how often it was doing it and how long it would stay that way. From the looks of your coils in the picture that you posted you have a problem. Its not normal for the bottom 1/3 of the cols to be frosted as much as shown in that picture. Looks like your fan may have been bad from the get go.

The only thing that will make the coils look as yours did with really heavy frost on bottom and none on top is a gas leak ( which isn't the case because the unit was producing below 0 temps.) An air leak (door seal or dispenser flapper) or a whacky or broken fan) did you replace the evap. Thermistor or the freezer thermistor?

ok, i went back and read the entire post. So you replaced the evap. thermistor because it was figured that it was causing the heater to stay on too long in return causing your ice to melt.

That's not exactly right in your situation. If it were allowing the heater to stay on too long then the evaporator wouldn't be clogged with frost as shown in your picture.

remove the defrost heater and OHM it....if it's open it's bad.

the compressor is running now? and is the portion of the coils with no frost cold? wet or dry?

is the bottom portion with the frost..is it clogged or just coated?

have you been running the unit with the back wall out all day?

need to have the back wall installed for the temps to be correct. that also explains why the frost pattern is weird.

install back cover and wait 24 hrs. then post back temps.

Well figured out what the problem was.Nothing wrong with the fridge. The hot water feed burst underneath the concrete slab foundation. The bottom of the fridge was heating up every time some one took a shower. I moved the fridge so the plumber could do the repairs and now my ice cubes don't melt and my beer stays cold. Thanks for all of the help
