Hi there. If you are technically inclined: Check the defrost clock. It's usually behind the grill at bottom front of frig. or near the compressor. There is probably a little window on the clock motor where you can see it turn. You can manually advance the clock to put the unit into defrost mode. Check the defrost heating element. This is the usual problem. It is under shrouds where all the frost builds up. If element good, check defrost thermostat connected to element mechanically and in series electrically.
If not technically inclined, call an appliance repair person.
Thanks
Paul
