Question about Frigidaire Refrigerators
1965 unit - ice build up on coils until temp can no longer be maintained
visual check of defrost timer motor window - running
Sound like the defrost thermistat or heater is bad. Regardless if you have ice block on coils defrost thermistat must be replaced. Even if still good it gets damaged. Empty out fridge and let manually defrost for 24 to 48 hours. With doors open and unplugged. Test heater with a meter to see if its still good. Replace defrost thermistat and plug back in.

Poor cooling is often the result of a heavy frost build-up on the evaporator coils or a condenser that is clogged with dust, lint, and dirt. Determine the temperature setting. The refrigerator should be set to temperatures ranging from 34 degrees to 40 degrees, while the freezer should be below 30 degrees. Adjust the temperature setting which will naturally improve the ice buildup that's been caused by the wrong temperature setting.
Move the refrigerator away from the wall. Oftentimes, this simple action is all that is needed because the unit is not getting enough air circulation behind it. Also, some refrigerators have vents underneath the unit, which are easily clogged with debris. Clean these vents and coils.
Remove food and shelving from the refrigerator and freezer portions of the fridge. If ice build up is happening in the freezer, the drain in the freezer may be clogged. With the unit off, remove coverings to expose drain and pour hot water down the drain hole until it comes out into the drain drip pan under the fridge.
Check the condenser coils. The evaporator coils could be causing the problem of ice build up. If this is the case, professional repair is likely needed to replace the motor, thermostat or other problems within the fridge.
