You can manually force defrost. Remove the back metal panel to expose the motherboard and unplug the power plug on the bottom left. Stick a jumper between the J11 and J 8 connector pins. The pc board will have these pins labeled. Now plug in fridg. The defrost heater will now draw current, if yes, you probably have a bad motherboard item # 801. They also recommend to also replace the freezer thermister. If not, you have a bad defrost heater or thermostat. Very common for the heater to fail on these.
