A thermistor is a 2" torpedo looking piece with 2 wires attached to it . The defrost bimetal , a 1" round aluminum piece , snapped onto the coils , with 2 wires , should be replaced when replaceing the heater . This bimetal could be the problem . To test the defrost system , remove the main control board cover . The blue plug with 3 wires to it needs to be connected . Looking at the plug , the wireing will look like this : l l l . Lets call the terminals 1 2 3 . Useing a piece of insulated wire with both ends stripped , insert one end into terminal 2 and the other end into terminal 3 . The heater will come on if both the heater AND bimetal are good . If you put a new heater in and it wont come on , and you do this test , then the bimetal has to be bad . If your terminology is correct , you have 2 thermisters in the freezer . One on top of the coils ( evaporator sensor ) and one at the bottom by the drain pan ( freezer temp sensor ) . Wouldn't hurt to replace both if you replaced one .

With you model and brand I would want to check the voltage on the fan and shaft play. Meaning the fan may be going bad or the voltage being altered at the motherboard. I do know your model with the control board that it has if a fan becomes defective the board is also affected. If the fan goes bad and replaced it is very possible that the board will fail and cause the new fan to fail. If you need help with diagnostics please let me know, Thanks, Sea breeze
