Question about Fisher and Paykel Fisher Paykel Intuitive Eco Washer IWL15
Maybe the heater was ok all along. There are two micro-temps in line with the heater which go open circuit under excessive heat conditions. These are located at each end of the connections to the heater element. Check these to see wether they are still closed. They cannot be reset and have to be replaced if faulty/open circuit. There is also a defrost thermostat/terminator in the heater cavity which should be closed under cold conditions. Best time to check this thermostat is when the evaporator is full of ice.

If there is no cooling
at all , before we go further we must confirm the first step of confirming the
compressor and gas pressure. So shut off the fridge and leave it off while you
clean and check the evaporator for frost. If frost is seen it is a good
indication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas within.
Now after about 6 hours plug in the fridge to start. Observe cooling to happen in about one hour and ice to from under three hours.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge. If there is no ice formation we have a big issue as the compressor and gas must be checked out. If compressor is running check the pressure, get help to test gas pressure. If not you will need to fill up ,If gas pressure is good the possibility of the compressor being inefficient is high. In such a case you must take consensus to estimate and decide, if RPM of motor is low check capacitor.
However if Ice forms then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off. If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked.
The ventilation fan that
circulates the COLD air from the evaporator coils could get clogged with frost
and so could be jammed. Also the wires to the fan can be worn out due to the
frost. If so check if the defrost timer works to switch the heater to remove
the frost. Also the check if the compressor is shut down by the timer /thermostat . If the
heaters are not working, check continuity of the heaters.
So attempt to test using a multi-meter / clamp tester from the outside and make your observations so that we come to the solution.
