Konnichiha, Samurai Appliance Repair Man (and the rest of the community!),

Your forum is great and has helped me to learn a lot; thanks and keep up the GREAT work. I have reviewed the following posts:

... but I'm still not *too* sure if the Adaptive Defrost Control Board is what I should be replacing. A few facts....

* Fridge is only 1.5 years old
* Freezer is cold, working fine
* Fridge is warm, not working
* There is no frost/ice blocking airway between freezer and fridge
* In the freezer there is no frost inside the compartment....

BUT - I notice that BEHIND the back wall of the freezer (where it seems the evaporator coils are located), you can feel ice/frost back there. As I manually defrost, this ice/frost starts to surface inside the freezer until it is all gone. I did this 2 months ago, all was clear, turned on the fridge and the fridge worked fine. Here I am 2 months later and the same problem and I am now defrosting manually again...

Do I have a broken ADC board? If I look at the ADC board, will I be able to tell? I'm about to unscrew the back wall of the freezer to expose the evaporator coils to see if I learn anything.... any assistance would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks guys,
