why do you want to defrost your freezer?is it not frost free?if so you have a defrost problem,but if you want you can unplugg it and use a hair dryer to defrost it,let me know how you do-mike

Possible of 3 reasons.
1) Defrost bimetal is open and not allowing power to heater element in evaporator coil in freezer.
2) Defrost timer is not going into defrost, motor stopped moving.
3) Evaprator fan motor is not rotating. Possible motor.
First check for frost in the back panel of the freezer section.
if there is frost and the fan is operating, would suggest manually putting unit into defrost, depending on particular model. may be a switch you can move with a standard screw driver to get the fans and compressor to shut off. If you find this either. Top of fridge in refrigerator section below temperature selection controls. Or remove toe plate, the pretty decor under the door. and it will be in there.
If this is an electronic style, look under that toe kick and there is a technician's sheet that will explain how to get into defrost.
Allow 10 minutes for heater to heat, listen for water sizzling on heater element. if this does work. you will need the defrost timer.
Hope this helps.

If it's flooding, it's NOT the drain pan. It's probably the water valve has gotten stuck in the open position. Hope this helps!

If you can hear the fan running in the freezer you have a defrost issue. Depending on the Model number it can be a timer, adaptive defrost board, a bi-metal themostat, or heater.

The control board that is on the back outside panel of the refrigerator needs to be replaced. Unplug the refrigerator and remove the protective cover that you will find over that control board. Document the locations of the wiring connections or take a digital picture of the control board before removing any wires so that they can be reconnected properly. Remove all of the wiring connections and replace that control board. Reconnect the wires and reassemble the refrigerator.
Here is a link to the part you need.
