Yes bi-metal affects whether timer runs.If the bi-metal does not close during cooling cycle and your temperature are what you say they are it should be closed.I guess when you said in the beginning...

It will take time for the defrost thermostat to close after defrost as the defrost thermostat is rated at 18 degrees f.So the timer motor will not be turning.Let it run over night.

During non-Defrost, the Defrost Timer will run IF:
Cold Control is "closed" and Defrost Bi-Metal is "closed"
(Compressor is running, and Evaporator is cold)
