that problem very likely is the control board. there is another brand of fridge in S.AFRICA THAT DOES THE EXACT THING OF WHICH THE BOARD HAS TO BE CHANGED.

The refrigerator is starting defrost mode once four hours of compressor run time has elapsed. Once the computer enters defrost mode it will remain in defrost mode until the desired evaporator temperature is reached (to melt any ice present). However, in my case, the defrost heater was not coming on due to a melted thermal fuse. (one defrost heater and one thermal fuse in each compartment). I found the thermal fuses to be open so I bypassed them. They are made to "open" at 77 degrees farhenheit. Simply storing the appliance in a garage could melt them. Hope this helps!!

If there is no cooling at all on the fridge section but the freezer works then it is confirmed that the compressor and gas pressure is OK. Now shut off the fridge and leave it powered 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.
However if ice forms in the freezer 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. Frost formation without defrosting could block the air flow and so shut the air passage to the fridge. Also the blower fan must work and if this is not working then the fan can be faulty. Also a fault on the control unit is a suspect to non functioning of any one of these components.
If defrost timer works but frost keeps forming check while the compressor shuts if the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
So try this test using a multi-meter on the defrost timer and the thermostat and make your observations so that we come to the solution.
