Check the defrost timer if that is good check the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. It is common for the defrost thermostat to go bad.

Your refrigerator is frosted up. Remove the inside panel of your freezer. Defrost the ice out of the coils and check the heater and bi-metal. If both are good then your defrost timer is bad. If one is bad replace and you have it fixed. Good luck.

About 98% of the time on a Whirlpool built Kenmore such as yours the problem with automatic defrosting is the "defrost timer". It's super easy to repair. You can get one from Sears, a local appliance parts retailer or just about anywhere online (just plug this part number---> 482493 <--- into a search engine and price shop)
Here's a diagram I made. It details the repair. Number 4 says "ADC", don't worry. There are two types of defrost timers one is an ADC and another is yours. They both follow the same repair procedure, OK?
Here's a full size diagram of your machine. You'll see that there is no difference other than the type of defrost timer.
NOTE---> UNPLUG YOUR FRIDGE BEFORE DOING THIS REPAIR!!! Otherwise, you'll look like this permanently...
There ya go, Danda! Remember to rate this solution as "FixYa" WillYa?

Hi, The defrost drain behind the rear freezer panel is plugged. Remove the rear panel and clear the ice away from the drain. Then you will need to flush the drain hole with hot water to make sure it is open.
Some models require an after market drain heat kit.
Please get me your model # and I can look this up to let you know if you need that heat kit.

Could be the evaporator fan or the evaporator is froze and needs to be defrosted or the damper is closed between the freezer and the refrigerator.
