This timer is generally located in the under the fridge in the front or back. It's generally looks link a small square box about 3 inches square with a single round slotted dial. When you locate the timer using a flat head screwdriver simply turn the dial until you hear the compressor turn off a click. If the fridge is not running you can open the door long enough to warm it up and get the compressor started then turn the switch to make sure you have the defrost timer in the defrost mode. I would also suggest that you check the fridge hourly and make sure that it has started running again after a few hours. If you have a faulty switch this could keep the fridge from starting again. If the switch is faulty and the fridge fails to start by itself then simply rotate the timer until the fridge starts.
Also if your fridge is opened a lot or you live in a high humidity area this too can cause excesive icing.
