The defrost timing is controlled by a pc board. This model doesn't have a standalone mechanical timer. If you have a defrost issue it is likely to be the element or termination sensor.

How to test defrost timer

Yours appears to have come with a Adaptive Defrost Control Part number 61005988 Usally when they go bad being electronic strange things happen.Defost stops or a fan and compressor. They are the most likely reason for defrost failure on your model. On the ADC for your model I dont believe you can manually get it to work for you. Just Replace, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Refrigerator side by side neither will won't stay cold

You have an automatic defost malfunction. There is a timer (or circuit board) which controls the run and defost modes of your refrigerator. Once in defost, there is a heater that comes on to melt frost behind back panel. Once a certain temperature is reached behind the panel, a defost thermostat (or bi-metal) cuts off the heater. This maintains your frost-free operation.
