Okay, I defrosted it a couple days ago. The frost melted down to
probably only about a half gallon.
But it did not help. It is running about -27 F now.
What did you mean in your other post about frost being near the temp sensor?
Seems to me if it's a mechanical thermostat they usually go bad by
going higher in temp. A digital model can have a thermister going bad,
or the electronic reference is going bad sometimes caused by the power
supply going bad.
It's not the compressor, or congestion, unless the sensor is
obstructed by food, or dead bodies.
In looking at the PDF first thing wrong is there is no picture of
device which all good manuals should hhave at beginning. Second
problem not even one diagram what or where is temp control.
Next question, where and how do yo measure, and have you checked top
to bottom ?
Could it be that this part (#13 in the parts list given in the link
above) isn't sensing the temperature correctly or has its contacts
I don't think replacing it requires getting into the sealed section,
and its thin metal tube probably just wraps around a copper tube or
sticks into a pipe full of grease.
