th ebi-metal is a thermostat which shuts the defrost heater on/off, but doesnt actually put the unit into defrost. if it were bad the defrost heater would never go on resulting in massive build up of ice on back wall of freezer, and noticable refrigeration sect. cooling.. dont know how you know the compressor never shuts down, but if that the case perhaps you have a sealed system/ freon issue. try removing the back panel of freezer section and check the evaporator coil. you shuld have an even frost pattern over the entire evap coil. if theres just frost over the top 1or 2 coils, and the rest of coil is shiny aluminum , thats an indication of a sealed system issue.( 5 year part warr by manufacture) def not a do it yourself issue...but that would,, depending on extent of restriction/loss of freon,, cause freezer to freeze and defrost eratically,and the compressor would be running constantly trying to achieve a good stable temp

I'm having the same problem.I checked out my fridge and found the defrost heater bad. I replaced it and also replaced the defrost thermostat. It fixed it for about 4 days and then the problem reocurred. I strongly believe that one of the relays that are built into the circuit board are going bad or getting stuck. I just hate to replace the board and have the same problem again. But, i have already replaced all other components of the defrost system, so the circuit board can only be the problem. I'm going to give it a shot.

Timer is O.K. It's doing what it should be doing. Likely the defrost thermostat mounted on the top of the cooling coil has failed. I't's a round 1" disk clipped to the top of the coil, with 2 wires coming out of it.
Remove rear panel in freezer panel to access the tstat. Could be the main calrod heater as well, but it rarely fails.

If the frost builds up on the evaporator coil, sounds like the defrost heater may be out. Check continuity.
If the frost buildup anywhere else - there must be an air leak somwhere. Usually it's the gasket or the ice dispenser flap stuck open.
