Does anyone has a service manual for a kitchenaid preserva fridge? Dont have a model number as the customer bought it used and the label is missing.

I ran it through diagnostics using a french door kitchenaid manual and all thermistors pass. I cant access the fridge side evaporator yet as it was frozen up into a solid block of ice. The styrofoam insulation around the evaporator looks like cant even be taken out without breaking it apart. I should be able to access it tomorrow but I didnt see a defrost heater in there and when I put it in defrost mode. Looked up a random model side by side kitchenaid fridge parts list and it doesn't show a defrost thermostat in there nor a defrost heater.

Should I change the fridge side evaporator temperature sensor or even on both evaporators?

Any input is much appreciated!!!
