There is definitely something wrong with the defrost system. What is the complete model number of the refrigerator?

Remove the rear panel inside the freezer. Check for continuity the defrost thermostat and the defrost heater. The defrost thermostat must be ice cold at the time of the test.

If both parts tested OK, replace the defrost timer (#23 at the diagram).

- The defrost thermostat Part number: 5303918202

Part number: 5303918202



- The defrost heater Part number: 5303918208

Part number: 5303918208



- The defrost timer Part number: 215846602

Part number: 215846602



Here are the breakdown diagrams and Parts for Frigidaire FRT18KD3AW2 Refrigerator - AppliancePartsPros.com
