What you need to do is get a amp meter check the amp draw of the defrost timer. also check the defrost thermostat and ohm the defrost heater out.

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?
