Thanks for the question.

In the control panel where the thermostat is located look under that panel for two screws with a small hole between the two screws use a flat screwdriver and turn a small cog in that hole turn it slowly till the fridge turns off, wait 15 min and see if the frost on that panel starts to thaw if it does replace that defrost timer.
