On my GE refrigerator the auto defrost does not work. Help

I have a GE refrigerator. The auto defrost does not work. I replaced the heating element but that did not help. I read that you can manually turn on the defrost timer but I can't find the location of the timer. Model GSH25JSXB SS. I have ohm meter and tools for testing.

I have a Dacor EF48BNDBSS. I replaced the Evaporator Drain

I have a Dacor EF48BNDBSS. I replaced the Evaporator Drain Tray Assembly, but the new part performs like the old with the drain tube freezing and preventing the defrost water from exiting the freezer compartment. Eventually (every 2 months or so) the water overflows the tray then freezes into icicles inside the freezer. I then perform a manual defrost to get another few months. I left the thermistor disconnected as recommended to force a 6 hour defrost cycle. I also insulated the drain tube in hopes of keeping the water liquid long enough to exit. After manual-defrost and a restart, auto-defrosting appears to work with water making to the catch tray for about a week then the typical 2-month freeze pattern begins afresh. How do I troubleshoot other defrost components to be sure they are sound? I bought the unit used and this problem has always been present for my 2 years of ownership. Is there a way to heat trace the drain tube by inserting another warming wire? Could the main control board not by activating all the heat trace needed? Thanks for the help in advance.
