Question about Freezers

Sounds like the anti-frost heater is turning on in the freezer. Depending upon the make it can be a faulty controller board or that the light is staying on inside the freezer (also caused by a faulty controller board). Have you had the board changed?

JH, did you notice if the freezer back panel was full of frost first time it started thawing? If so you may have a defrost problem. I've had 4 of these control boards (jazz boards) fail on this model in the last week. Behind the front grill, there should be a tech sheet that will show you how to run the componet tests at the control board. Part number for the board is 12002339. This board controls compressor, defrost, damper and fans. Catriver.

wrong model # ,defrost problem. remove freezer panel, check heater, check limit switch while still covered in ice, if both ohm infinity, replace defrost timer.

you have a defrost problem, could be bad adaptive defrost board,t-stat heater,when you open freezer door listen for fan if fan is blowing check the t-stat,look at it and see if it has a buldge on it,sometime you can see this and tell it's bad,you'll need a meter to read out the heater and other parts to see whats bad,might be a good idea to call a tech to do this,when you find problem you have to melt everything out again

its probably the defrost heating element located just below the evaporator coil,remove the evaporator cover and check the terminals on the element,then disconnect one wire off the element and check it for continuity
