Hello,

In order to activate the procedure: Press and release the fresh food door switch 5 times within 6 seconds. In order to deactivate it repeat the same action or just unplug the refrigerator for a few seconds.

What seems to be a problem with the refrigerator?

Gene.

Thanks for your information. I'll give it a try.

My refrigerator is having the constant clicking noise from the top-left side of refrigerator before evaporator fan finally runs. I think the Adaptive Defrost Control unit is bad and ordered a brand new one (Part #: 5303918476). The clicking problem is solved but I found out the freezer is having severe frosting problem. I checked the evap heater with ohmmeter and found out it's ok. I don't know if it's caused by my old and defective ADC II or by defrost thermostat. I know the new ADC IV is good. If I can force the refrigerator into defrost mode and defrosting does not happen. I would know the thermostat is bad. Please let me know if my logic is right. Thanks.

[Update]

Yeah. The procedure you provided works. Thanks again.

Yes. It did. After defrost cycle is finished, the normal working mode is restored automatically. Can I assume the defrost thermostat is good?

Yes, the defrost thermostat should be good. If it will happen again, replace the adaptive defrost control board.
