In your case I will need to assume that your model is a typical refrigerator with a defrost control and these type have parts that are made up of the major parts for the auto defrost. Auto defrost has a most likely problem found in the timer or electronic defrost control. These are most times found inside the fresh food section and behind the temperature control panel in the photo below marked a E and in that photo it shows a defrost timer in lower arrow and a electronic defrost control in the upper arrow. The next most likely problem would be the defrost heater and defrost thermostat found in the rear of the freezer compartment. Sounds like the defrost system has failed. Most Brand models We are able to handle here in the USA but your model is made ih the UK and I have tried my best to Have your dealers provide me information about parts replacement. A refrigerator is a Refrigerator and that is a fact but your models is designed for your local voltage 220 volt at 50 cycles That is normal home voltage in most countries except th USA. Our voltage for an appliance is 120 volts at 60 cycles so all the electrical components ar different and made different for different countries. When I request parts or diagrams from the UK I am always rejected. Then given a local repair center to service the brand of appliance.

Since you are getting frost in you frost free refrigerator, tell me that the defrost circuit has a problem. It is made of a defrost timer/module, defrost heater and defrost thermostat. What should happen is that the defrost timer should periodically turn off the compressor for about 30 minutes and turn power to the defrost heater via the thermostat. The heater is attached to the evaporator coil and melts any frost build up on those coils.
It sounds like the defrost circuit has not been working for a while because the ice build up is not allowing the air to circulate around the coils to cool the refrigerator. The typical failures to the defrost circuit are the defrost timer motor fails to advance, or the defrost heater burns out. Hope this helps you.
