The defrost control is integrated into the main circuit board on the rear of the fridge.
You have to change the complete board.

Take a hair dryer and heat the auger drive gear. These will sometimes get moisture on them and freeze up.
Turn the refrigerator off first. Then remove the ice bin. The "U" shaped drive will be in the back.
After you have heated it thoroughly, try to move the gear manually. Resume power and try it again.

Disconnect the water line from the water control valve to the ice maker to see if it is letting water thru all the time. It should only let water pass when the ice maker is empty.

The compressor as well as the evaporator coils will get hot when the freezer is getting cold. Simple principle: Refrigerant gets cold and there must be an equal reaction, something getting hot. Just like the heat transfer in your car with the engine heating the radiator which dissapates the heat. hope this helps you, Rick

If it is leaking water in the freezer it will more than likely freeze amongst the ice cubes causing a block of ice.

It is more than likely leaking at the rear of the unit, near the valve or fill tube for the ice, this will run up the rear wall of the unit.

do you have the old fuse? If so, carefully read the engraved markings on it

a general E2 error involves the temp sensor or control board.It may be different for ruey shing. Try unplugging the unit for a minute and plug back in.

how do you know the power is on if all the lights are off?
If you are referring to the main supply, then maybe there is a reset button on the unit. If the unit is running, then without a manual I can't tell what the lights are for either.

The model number indicates the cubic footage of the freezer.
Example...model number xyz186xxww.,would be 18 cubic feet.
Post your model number on this thread for an exact conversion.
