If you are still having the problem we need to look at control board on back of refrigerator. Below is a picture of the back of refrigerator and the opening where the circuit board is mounted. Let me know if you need me to help get this resolved. You will need to examine back and front of board for burn marks. Always unplug refrigerator before you begin work on it. Thanks, Sea Breeze

More than likely either your defrost timer is bad or the heating element in the fzr is bad. The timer is normally located with the controls in the fridge side behind the plastic back or top if there is a light in the top center. It will have an access where you can turn it manually with a flatblade screwdriver. Turn it slowly and you will hear clicks it may take a few min. but try to make it click one at a time and listen for the fan and compressor to kick off. (slowly the defrost mode is just one click) If it kicks off wait 3 min and open the fzr and see if you hear hissing or ice cracking. (the hissing will be water dripping onto the heating element) If this happens replace the defrost timer. If you do not hear the element hissing ect... The element is bad or the defrost limit attached to one end of it it will be a round disc apx the size of a nickel replace it. good luck and remember to unplug the refridgerator before delving into the elect parts. I hope this helps you can defrost the fzr manually with a hair dryer or if the manual turning of the timer works until you get the offending part. good luck
