I have Electrolux fridge EI28BS56IS0 not cooling and I notice a little ice at the entry point to the EEV .
I ran test 49c and I can feel the motor in the EEV working and I it displays on-open and off-closed.
I then run test 62c and do feel the EVV opens and the display flashes 52F and then I see F on the display, I assume it failed
what exactly this fail mean?
The compressor and invertor are fine as I can feel the compressor running and it warm but not hot-hot.
the fridge is in my garage and it is freezing in there , 32F or so.
The inverter working since the compressor would not run at all. the inverter get 120VAC and 7VDC from the main board.

Corrected model number

I don't see frost on the EVAP at all. but I did notice the EEV valve capillary tube had little frost, which means that not enough coming through into the EEV , right? maybe sealed system leak.

Yes, sealed system problem.

BTW, I don't have the water line connected to the fridge is it necessary ?
No, not needed, just make sure the ice maker stays OFF.
