This particular model has onlya defrost thermo and heater. the defrost timer is actually built into the electronic control.behind the kickplate there should be a tech sheet to aid in r\troubleshooting the unit.all are a little different but youll be able to go into the electronic control andtest the parts indivually. all you reallly need to do is "force a defrost" cycle.
if need be a continuity test can be preformed on the defrost thermostat( clipped onto the the top of the evaqporator coil) as well as the defrost heater which is also located in hte evap section ( its wrapped around the coil(u-shaped element) heater should also have continuity.
defrost thermo IS the MOST common issue with any defrost problem. heres a link to sears.com gives a location as well as part numbers if needed 35is thermo and 33 is the heater

Kenmore classic bottom freezer refrigeration warm but freezer is cold


I would guess you have just caused a build up of ice to block the air way, which normally takes cold air into the fridge. manually defrost (unplug and wait until the ice goes away) then restart and it should be fine

This unit uses the cold air from the freezer to cool the fridge, you will find that the air duct has frozen up, completly defrost overnight with the doors open, this should rectify fault. Regards Advisor
