Hi jake ,
I went through your conversation above. I have same model whirlpool WRF736SDAM13. I have same problem which occurred second time in 11 month later. Last time in jan 2019 , Defrost thermostat faulty so i just replaced it with different spec like open and closing temp, it keep working from last 11 month, few days back same problem occurred again , there is frost all over coil. today i tested defrost thermostat and heater which are good , thermostat open close by changing temp and heater is heating by connecting directly to AC.
I found your shared tech sheet for this model , so tomorrow i will look into Defrost section in P2 in control board and will do more testing before i will go to get new control board. I'm good in soldering from my school days if there would need to replace any relay or other electronic component im able to do it.
could you please suggest me some steps which should i follow ?
Do you ship component to Canada?
Thanks

Hi,

You just follow everything I mentioned above, since yours is the exact same model.:)

Yes, you can order the new control board, It does ship to Canada too.:)

Here's the control board for your model you can order:
WPW10589838 Electronic Control Board


Plus you get $60 credit on your credit card when you return the old one.
