damper assy opens just fine .the refrig was mover to the garage on my arrival removed all access comers and powered on refrigerator,observing the frezer coils occasionally,(every 2 or three minutes) they start to frost up from bottom going towards top .the motor opens the door to the refrig ok . the fan over the coils in freezer runs ok.the defrost limiter thermostat does not have a adjustment screw on it so i assume the mother board controls that. I know Gene has posted a good review of defrost problems (has helped me on a previus pbm with this beast) .the box will be plugged back in tonight.i will arrive onsite on tues 1200 noon pst to check continuity on defrost limitor nd on heater assy at that time,thanks again for all your help and patience,respectfully narocroc.the model no is ess25xgmb approx 13 years old,thanks narocroc
