Question about Traulsen Refrigeration 48'' Wide x 24'' Deep Reach-In ''Ultra'' Wine Refrigerator With 2 Clear Blac...
I have a Whirlpool side by side 9years old. Bread and most foods get ice crystals and freezer burn after only 1 week. The door gasket looks good. The defrost heater comes on and pulls about 5A for about 3 min and cycles off with the cover removed. The evaporator fan runs as advertised. No ice build up on evap coil. Temps in both sides seem to be normal. Defrost t-stat reads open at room temp. Any help would be much appreciated!

There is no forced defrost entry for your refrig. Yours has a ADC board in the upper right corner of the control area in the refrig section. The only way to initate defrost is jump the terminals on the board. Look at the wiring diagram closely before making the jump. The board energizes the heater thru the neutral side so make sure you dont jump line to this. I believe you jump L2 to Def

Sounds like a bad timer to me. Forget the tstat. Power comes from the power cord and goes directly to the tstat. The tstat sends the power to the timer where it is directed to either the compressor or defrost heaters as needed.
Recheck your plug connector to the timer carefully. I have installed many timers that did not work, or work right, right out of the box.
As well, to cover yourself, I would replace the defrost tstat which is located behind the rear panel in the freezer compartment.
It's a small round disk clipped to the top of the cooling coil, and is the component that is by far, the component that fails most often.
Check the connections to the main heater as well, while your in there.
The defrost tstat looks like this.

Sounds like a refrigerant problem if you have changed all those parts already. It doesnt have enough capacity to properly cool. This also means there is a leak somewhere in the refrigeration system. This usually isnt a DIY project because you have to be licensed to use freon and it also involves Brazing to fix the leak. If you feel brave enough heres what u can do first you need a piercing valve to break into the refrigeration system to check pressures. let me know what the pressures are and what type of freon is used in freezer. I will help you from here let me know.
