It's usually near the thermostat or somewhere at the top of the refrigerator compartment under a plastic cover with a screwdriver sized opening in it. Just follow the plastic duct work from the thermostat and you should find it somewhere along the route.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/ is a good source for diagrams and parts but your model number didn't match probably because it wasn't complete. Look for a metal tag hidden on the framework which should give a part number like 156-111111 and plug it into the sears website.

The refrigerator side has stopped cooling.


, you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model
