th ebi-metal is a thermostat which shuts the defrost heater on/off, but doesnt actually put the unit into defrost. if it were bad the defrost heater would never go on resulting in massive build up of ice on back wall of freezer, and noticable refrigeration sect. cooling.. dont know how you know the compressor never shuts down, but if that the case perhaps you have a sealed system/ freon issue. try removing the back panel of freezer section and check the evaporator coil. you shuld have an even frost pattern over the entire evap coil. if theres just frost over the top 1or 2 coils, and the rest of coil is shiny aluminum , thats an indication of a sealed system issue.( 5 year part warr by manufacture) def not a do it yourself issue...but that would,, depending on extent of restriction/loss of freon,, cause freezer to freeze and defrost eratically,and the compressor would be running constantly trying to achieve a good stable temp

SOURCE: trouble shooting defrost system
you can not manually start a defrost cycle
go to the freezer and check the heater and bimetal they are in the evaperator coil if these parts check good then replace the adaptive defrost control

Defrost control board is in the top of the refrigerator behind the two levers that control the temperature. You have to take off the plastic cover. There are two screws and then you slide to cover to the side to remove. The board is in a white plastic housing.

My Haier wasn't defrosting right, ice would build up & the freezer would be fine but the fridge temp not right. After reading lots of posts, defrosting a few times,etc., I took advice & ordered a new defrost timer. (Repair Clinic) They had diagrams that showed where things are. This is everything I did. Unplugged it, cleaned off everything in back, double checked fans were all working, drain pan draining, in freezer took off panels to make sure ALL ice buildup was melted including drain hole. Made sure everything was connected (there is sensor w/clip that could be near or on the condensor coils & it wasn't on - so I made sure it was on) - dried things, put back together. Changed the defrost timer. Plugged back in. Two weeks have gone by and things are just fine! You definitely need to completely defrost the fridge because even if the defrost timer is the problem all the ice built up won't allow the fridge to defrost in the defrost cycle. You'll want a fresh start & it's worth it! I thought we were going to have to buy a new fridge! And my husband is proud that I did the trouble-shooting & repair all by myself! Thanks to all the help I found online!
