Hey guys. Sorry typing this on my phone.

Have a customer with a frigidaire french door. Issues with front display (temp readout is a bit funky, looks like it needs a new display). Options screen readout is fine. Its hard to tell what numbers it reads out, especially in service test mode.

Now, the main issue is the finger evap for the ice maker frosts over. Customer has defrosted it many times. It makes ice ok, but freezes over every few days.

Found bad defrost thermostat up there and replaced it, but issue has returned. Fan in there tested ok and was working. Also complained that the fridge section loses cooling about every 2 wks. I checked the cooling system and everything seemed to be fine during my visit. Service test modes for the evap fan, damper, defrost checked out fine.

Not highly experienced with these units, does anyone have any other tips on why the evap for the icemaker could be freezing over?

I saw a few service flashes with regards to an air handler kit. Does this need to be changed as well? Customer doesnt want to spend too much on the unit.

Thanks!
