Btw, I did all ohm tests on compresor and motor windings. All within specs.

So.. I really hope it was sticking defrost timer. But if not - I will have to catch it in act to see what is really going on.
The more I learn about this one the more simple it looks to me.

I feel you may very well have the problem solved. If not, and everythings else checked out, it only leaves the df stat and/or the df heater,imo.

Did you turn the timer with a screwdriver before changing it? If so, did the comp kick on?

The fan in that supplies cool air for the fresh food compartment is wired seperately from the compressor and df stat. If I am right about the timer, that explains the one fan running.

That timer have 3 or 4 terminals close together and 1 out to itself a little?

Yes, 3 + 1 separate. Original one had 10hr timer and new one was 8hr

Ok. It did it again and I solved this problem. I bought new fridge for them and will take this one home. Put it in a basement and see if I can catch it in act. Then decide if I want to repair/sell/keep/throw away.

Hate to hear that. Must be something in the enclosed system.

When you catch it doing it again, take the rear panel off to see if the coils are icing up before they have a chance to melt. Did you or the tech check the df stat? It may be clipped on the evap coils. While you are there, remove one of the leads from the heater and see if it shows continuity. In fact, make sure the stat is disconnected when you check it for continuity also.

Seems the only things left is some kind of internal problem with the enclosed system, heater or df stat. This is assuming the comp is good and there is no circuit board.

You can get some $3 relays and wire them up so they latch on the fault.
Then you see what relays have latched and so you have a clue as to what the problem is/was.

It's a poor man's Event Recorder.

Can you give me more info on how I can do that? Is it relays that stay latched when you remove power?
Practical example on how you do that?

Can you recommend a replacement for Photobucket? I can't upload anything anymore, including schematics, and their help stuff is lousy.

OK, without a schematic, you need a relay with a 120vac coil and SPDT contacts [see wiki].

Wire the normally open contact terminal to one of the coil wires, the common contact terminal to the AC and the other coil wire to the AC. The normally closed contact is unused.

With power applied you use a toothpick or other insulated thing to push the armature down. It will stay down and the relay is now armed.

If the 120v drops out for 10 milliseconds or more the armature goes up and stays up and relay coil stays unpowered even if power returns.

For the relay try Hosfelt and allelectronics and places like that or Radio Shack if you're desperate.

You may need a more sophisticated arrangement because if a bunch of relays have all dropped out you don't know which went first.
