Hi,

It seems the freezer is not auto defrosting. Frost is forming on the back side of the bottom freezer. I don't know what to check.

The compressor and the fans are running constantly. Could this impact the compressor?

Please help!

Thanks!

Inside the freezer on the back wall?
If yes, test the heater and stat first...

If they check ok, the control is then changed...if either test bad they get changed out first.

Thanks a lot for your help with this.

This is the number I found on the tag inside the fridge. There are no digits after. Maybe I should check somewhere else in the fridge?

I don't see the heater, defrost in the freezer. Should I take something out to see this part? Also, i cannot find the defrost thermostat.

You took it off of the model/serial tag?

Both are in the freezer, behind the false back wall...attached to the evaporator/cooling coils.
