Yes that is correct so i suspect whatever signals it to go on may be the problem or something before that even i don't know...
yes , its the defrost thermostat thats bad.this runs both the defrost heater and the fan. when its bad the fan will not need to replace it. its clipped to the top of the coils. the link below will take you to where you can order it.
