id say your right the unit should defrost for 30 mins of every 8 hours of compressor runnig time now that's not normal time because the thermostat cuts the unit off and on every now and then . the timer for defrost measures how long the compressor runs and it varies with how often the doors are open im sure parts of your defrost system are inoperative send me an e mail with your model number and i will help firstname.lastname@example.org

The part you are referring to is the adaptive defrost assembly.
You can purchase it online here.
For a diagram depicting the part click here. Its # 13 on the top right.
Warninig: Remove the refrigerator from the mains outlet to prevent shock and use safety gloves before performing any repairs.
Before replacing the board check the defrost heater and thermostat for continuity with a multimeter to ensure they are working properly.
To test defrost thermostat set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Place aprobe on each terminal. The multimeter should display a reading ofzero when the thermostat is cold and a reading of infinity when it iswarm (40 to 90 degrees F depending on the model). If the thermostatdoes not pass this test it should be replaced.
To test the defrost heater set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should display a reading somewhere between zero and infinity. If the reading is not between those two extremes the heating element should be replaced.

This could be the defrost timer or the defrost heater coil... The evaporator coils are located at the back of the freezer compartment. To access you will need to remove all the racks and then there is a cover held on by a few screws at the back of freezer and under it you will see the coils... Do not beat bang or scrape them... Use a hair dryer or heat gun to melt ice or you could just use hot water . Put your model #.JCB2388GTB into searspartsdirect.com and they will show parts diagrams.
If I can help with anything else please let me know.

SOURCE: The refrigerator and freezer are
Check compressor is running with exact current (Amps). Keep your hand on discharge line on condenser coil to feel warm. If no warm means no gas in the system. If warm and no whistling sound in freezer means system under chocked.
If no gas, find leak an arrest it. Vacuum and do gas charging. If chocked, release all gas, flush out the system, replace filter drier, vacuum and recharge gas. Helpful?

Frost is a natural occurrence on the evaporator coils in the freezer compartment of your refrigerator. To prevent frost buildup, a self-defrosting refrigerator warms the coils using a defrost heater several times each day to melt away the frost. This frost melts into water and flows out of the compartment through the drain. If any part of the defrost system is not working properly, the result can be heavy frost buildup that may affect the cooling capacity of the refrigerator.
The defrost timer is a mechanism that tells the defroster how long to run to melt the frost. The limit switch measures the temperature in the freezer and helps to maintain it, while the heater is the key element that melts the frost. Any one of these components could need replacement at a given time, which will result in this over-frosting.
