    fan in freezer blows cold air and is on most of the time. I took the fan housing off and nothing else
    there. BTW I unplugged the fridge and 4 hours later opened the freezer and all the ice was still cold and
    dry. I then left the door open and within 3 minutes the ice was melting and dripping.

    The evaporator fan motor in the freezer circulates the air in the freezer and blows the cold air to the fresh food section and also draws the warm(er) air back into the freezer to re-cool the air.

    Sorry, not a clue what you are trying to accomplish or test!

    removed back plate freezer. watched as it went into defrost. 20 minutes later the heater was still red and it was 55°F in there. Sometime later heater turned off, fan went on and it started cooling again.

    Defrost thermostat is 64ºF....the heater should remain on until the evaporator temp reaches the approx 64ºF.

    Sometime later heater turned off
    Did you get a temp reading when that occurred?

    an went on and it started cooling again.
    Came out of defrost. The whole defrost cycle is often 30-40 minutes long.

    Did you get a temp reading when that occurred? Above 55°F which is much way too warm for a freezer to be.

    that heater is on way too long! It's cooking my frozen foods.

    and causing condensation in the freezer, which then freezes when it gets cold again...ice everywhere more and more as the days pass.

    cut thermostat def WR50X10073 out of circuit and heater turns off. Thermostat def WR50X10073 reads 1.8meg ohms at room temperature.

    Should be open or no continuity at room temp.

    The L64 is the temp it will cut out at.
