I couldn't find the one you wrote down.

I found:
Code SY EF
Code SY CE or SY CF
Code OP SH

Any of these right?

I saw high temp on the display, are the temps good?...not good?
Any thing runs? Fans, compressor?
Have you tried unplugging the refrigerator for 30-60 minutes to see if the control will reset?

I have no sound so I could not listen to this, does this help at all...

After going through the diagnostics, It is cooling. The problem is the defrost not happening. Is there a video on what to change out for that for this model?

We normally don't need to worry about fault codes to check a defrost issue.

We check the above first, if ok we replace the defrost control.

Replaced the defrost heater, but it only defrost manually. Is it the thermostat or the control board.

Don't believe your refrigerator has a defrost thermostat if that is what you meant.

The defrost heater must have been bad because it wouldn't defrost manually. Since I replaced it, the manual defrost works but not the automatic.
