Remove the kick plate grill at base of refrigerator and turn the timer clockwise slow until compressor stops. That should be beginning of the defrost cycle. After a few minutes look inside freezer or listen for crackling or hissing noise. That should indicate defrost. After 25 minutes if it does not restart then turn again until it restarts. Replace defrost timer. Let me know what happens, Thanks Sea Breeze

Kenmore won't cool down.


I you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model
