Kenmore Refrigerator Freezing Up - Won't Defrost

I have a Kenmore Refrigerator that keeps freezing up. The model number for it is 25369832900 and the serial number is BA 00700520. I defrost it, by turning it off for a while. Turn it back on, and it works fine, until about 2 weeks later, it freezes up again. I have taken the back panel (inside of the freezer) off and exposed the coils, this time. It is completely froze up. I unplugged the wire that is connected to the dial, inside the freezer, and completely removed this. Now what? Please give me some ideas what to look for. When it freezes up, the fan makes a bad clanging sound, I guess because it is hitting up against "ice". A few weeks ago, when it was frozen up, the bottom wouldn't even cool properly, and I lost milk and a couple of other things, because I didn't realize it wasn't cooling. This is when I realized I had a problem. I guess it wasn't getting ventilation from the freezer???? I'm a woman, so I ain't to savvy at these things, but I try. Thanks for any help that you can give.

Usually, when the fan is working, then your problem will be the defrost timer. It turns on the heating coil in the freezer to melt the frost.

Refrigerator and freezer is freezing everything

Its either a bad defrost timer not kicking on, bad main control board or the temp switch. Sorry not much help but the only way to really tell is check with a ohlm meteor and eliminate each part.

Kenmore refrigerator model 70182001. I have thawed out the defrost drain multiply time and it keeps freezing up.

I had the same problem. I had to get a kit that fit around the heater and stuck down the drain. So when it went into defrost it would melt the ice in the drain. Worked well for a long time.

Kenmore refrigerator won't cool

Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------

I have a kenmore refri/freezer with top mount freezer. the freezer compartment keeps freezing up in the back, i have to chizzle the ice out every other i called sears and they said it was probably...

Your defrost system is at fault.
Most likely the defrost terminator thermostat attached to the freezer coil.
Could possibly be a bad defrost timer.
I would have to have the exact model number to be more specific.
