It's usually the defrost heater on this model. Pull rear panel of freezer and remove the heater, (2 screws). It's at bottom of coils. Take to your parts place and they should be able to ohm out for you to see if it's ok. If it's all blackened, probably heater.
A check you can make is to pull refrigerator out to access back. UNPLUG UNIT!
Remove panel over control board on back of fridge. On the blue connector in bottom of board note the defrost terminal as specified on board. Unplug connector and put a jump wire from this terminal on the CONNECTOR, to the terminal that has the wire going to it with no wire next to it. Plug in refrigerator. If defrost heater is good, it should start glowing red within a few minutes. If it doesn't replace it.

Hi, You will need to remove the rear panel and test the defrost heater and the bi-metal switch. The defrost heater is a very common problem with this model. You can check continuity on both the heater and bi-metal to detern which one need replaced. The bi-metal switch needs to be tested while it is could. If both of these parts prove to be ok, you will need to change the mother board.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

If the heater is working, then either the defrost thermostat is bad or the defrost timer board is not functioning correctly.

Yes that is right. Turn the Refrigerator off/ unplug it. Remove the rear panel of the freezer and thaw out the coils with a fan or hair dryer.
The most common problem is with the defrost heater. Using an ohm meter check the heater for continuity but unplug the 2 wires (one from each side). This should be a glass encased heater. you can also very gently pull both ends of the heater and if it is bad it will come apart instead of feeling "springy". If you have only one heater your new replacement will probably be a 2 heater kit.

It shouldn't burn out that fast but may have. Some of the side by sides came from the factory with only one heater. Later on it was decided that the replacement heater kit include a second heater. This could be the case for you.
