Sounds like your freezer has a bad defrost thermostat ( bimetal ) or bad #4 and/or #5 thermistor . This bimetal , has a high temp rating of 140 degrees , which means , when it gets to 140 behind the panel , it will cut off the defrost heater , to keep ice and food from thawing . The thermistors , tell the main control board the temps , and it decides when to restart the cooling process . I would check the thermistors by the digital controls , in the test mode , or have a technician check them for you .

Testimonial: "I would agree with this but how do I get the cover off the defrost thermostat with out breaking it. Also how do I get to the #4 & #5 thermistors? "
What you have is either a bad heater or heater bi-metal thermostat most likely. I say that since the ice box is working correctly until that frost builds up. Have you checked them. Your heater should test good for continuity(not open or bad) but the bi-metal is a different story. It is open at 50 degrees f and it only closes or carrys voltage when it is sitting in a freezer at 25f. What it does is allow power to the heater when the timer or automatic control calls for defrost. The defrost cycle is around 20 to 40 minutes and power is constantly being sent to that heater the whole time. When it gets warm enough for frost to melt 50F then that bi-metal opens up and kills the power to that heater. If that heater was to stay on it would not be purty. For the rest of the defrost cycle the coils simply rest and drip.

there's a heater in the freezer,when the machine goes into defrost the heater turns on and glows red,melts the ice off of the evap coil and that's what you are hearing.it should do this.

The defrost system is made up of the defrost heater, defrost thermostat and a timer. The defrost heater and thermostat are next to the evaporator which is behind a panel in the back of your freezer.
Suggest you go to sear parts direct and plug in the model number from the id tag (normally on the cabinet wall beside your crisper drawer) and it will give you an idea of the location.
