you have a problem here
you need to get the secondary defrost kit installed
it is not the jazz board
unless he is not programming it right aftwer install
but check your back wall for frost
if you have frost you have an airflow issue
whats happening is the door is being left ajar even a 1/16 gap is an issue
when hot air enters the unit fromn the gap it condenses on the diverter behind the freezer wall
after a few weeks it builds up enought o cause problems
there is a kit you can get that will divert electrical heat to the diverter and keep it warm enough to defrost it there by never having the issue again

Did you also check the defrost thermostat? That may be the only part you missed. Any time I change a defrost heater I make a simple habit of replacing the defrost thermostat. Sea Breeze

SOURCE: How do I do a
It sounds like you have more than the problem of the defrost cycle not keeping up with frost buildup.
The usual cause of excessive frost is that the freezer door is not fully closed, OR the gasket is not fitted properly, OR the gasket is worn. IF this is the problem, then when it is corrected, the normal defrost cycle timing will keep up.
Depending on the fridge, there may be a small timer for the defrost cycle, and it looks like the small, round timer motor in a dishwasher, clothes washer, and is usually located in the bottom section where the compressor is located. Often it's near the front, and if the grating at the lower front of the fridge is removed you can find it.
The timer [if your fridge uses this type, versus some solid state timing device built into a circuit board] will usually have a small plastic "shaft" / knob sticking out of the center. Rotating this shaft clockwise should advance the time when the defrost cycle begins.
IT DOES NOT, REPEAT DOES NOT, shorten the time BETWEEN cycles, only ADVANCES the "clock." You will have to readjust each time you want to accelerate the defrost start.
Good luck and hope this helpout.....
