could be a bad Electronic Defrost Control.

does the Defrost Heater get power when put into Defrost ?

depending on the missing last digit of your model number,

ET8WTKXKQ0x

Test plug is for checking defrost thermostat. Defrost thermostat has to be colder than 10F to allow power to get to the heater.

Sounds like your thermostat may be bad. If you remove the 2 wires off and jump then together and everything comes on then its bad. You may get lucky and tap on the knob and it will come on...if so you still need to replace it.

My problem is I cannot get the compressor, condenser fan, evap fan to come on. The light in fridge works, but no power to anything else? What would cause this?

If you look at my last post I just described the way you should proceed. The power for all your components that are not working is fed through the cold control (thermostat). Its most likey bad. Bypass it and see if everything comes on.
