Question about Frigidaire Refrigerators
Defrost thermostat is in freezer comp. Defrost function is inop.
Defrost thermostat is a temp control. To test it, it would need to be in ice water. When cold it is a closed switch or contacts (checked with a multimeter. When it gets above 50--55 degrees it will open the contacts. Another way, unplug refrigerator----safely hook a jumper wire across the thermostat leads by passing the thermostat and then put the refrigerator in defrost. If heater comes on the thermostat is probably bad. If still no defrost--- you may have burned out heaters. Once done testing this way make sure you remove jumper and tape all wires for a safe connection.
