Yes that is correct, I can manually force a defrost. After the ice/frost is melted off the evaporator coils the unit will run correctly until the ice/frost build up on the coils again to the point that the fan cannot pull air through them. Then the emperature starts to rise.
What about the thermistor, does mu LECR23EFE0 Figidaire/Electrolux refrigerator use a thermistor, part number 240597203, .
If so what does this part do exactly.
I am surprised that you all seem as bewildered as me about the problem. Where can I get a cpoy of the "service manual" for this model?
DO you now if my frigerator is mechanical defrost model or an adaptive defrost model.
