I thoroughly defrosted the coil, disassembled its plastic/styrofoam covers, and detached it from the back wall of the refrigerator. Be careful; the "evaporator cover" is a fragile styrofoam baffle encased in a hard plastic shell. While diagnosing this frost problem, styrofoam cracked into several pieces and separated from its plastic cover. I repaired it using kitchen caulking/adhesive and electricians' tape.
One of the temperature sensors is about mid-height on the refrigerator's left inside wall, next to the freezer. The old sensor was easily popped out, I cut its wire and spliced the new sensor, using small wire nuts. Then I sealed the open ends of the wire nuts with silicone, wrapped the splices with electricians tape, and reattached the sensor to the wall.
I checked the resistance of the removed sensor versus a new one, measurement was essentially identical (sorry I don't recall exactly how many ohms.) So I think the original door temperature sensor was probably OK and didn't need replacing.
The second sensor is located behind the evaporator coil. Remove the evaporator's mounting screws then carefully pull the right side of the coil forward. You'll discover the solid aluminum sensor holder tie-wrapped onto its back. Cut the tie wrap and pull the sensor holder out to where you can work on it. A rubber stopper holds the sensor probe in position. Remove the old probe and use the skills you learned above to splice the new one's wires.
I cleaned the aluminum part with denatured alcohol before mounting the new sensor. The rubber stopper was falling apart, so I used some silicone to helps it hold the new sensor in place.
Snake a long plastic tie-wrap through the coils, then use it to cinch the sensor into position. Reassemble everything and you're ready to restart the 'frig and see if your repair worked.
The original refrigerator coil temperature sensor appeared discolored. When I tried to measure its resistance I got readings that were all over the place. Jumping from infinity to zero.
Hopefully I have identified and replaced a defective part? It's been a month; we've had hight temperatures and humidity; the coils has not frosted! YAAY!!!!
