Expert:  north durham appliance replied 9 years ago.
these bottom mount freezers are having a lot of defrost thermostats failing you have to remove the freezer back wall to access this part it is a little round disc and will be attached to the cooling coil it should be closed {have continuity through it] below 50 degrees in temp you will need to test it with an ohm meter most likely this is the cause of the defrost problem once all the frost is removed the fridge will operate correctly for a couple of days untill frost reforms if this answer helps and is acceptible please click accept and thank you Kevin the other defrost componets are the heater and timer some models have an electonic defrost control board instead of a timer 90% of the time with a bottom mounnt freezer the defrost thermostat is bad
