The defrost thermostat is the correct part to be questioned in the issue your are facing. It contacts open at approximately +43°F. And close at approximately +15°F.The defrost thermostat has a 240K ohm resistor connected internally across the two terminals.
This resistor permits checking the defrost heater when the evaporator temperature is +15°F. or higher. You should also test the ADC. Before you do the ADC test, turn the Freezer Control all the way COLD, so that the Compressor is running. That way, you'll be able to tell when (and if) the ADC Relay clicks the Compressor off and should switch the Defrost Heater on. Also check the air-return vent behind the centre crisper drawer, there should be"cellophane" "flapper door" that you can see how much air is flowing: The Damper Door 1" x 4" plastic door Sears Parts $ 44 Repair Clinic $ 34.Therefore the three parts that you need to look for are:

I have found the best way to defrost my not quite frost free fridge-freezer is to empty the freezer compartment contents into the fridge and switch it off overnight, leaving the fridge door shut and the freezer door open. By stacking all the frozen food together as tightly as possible, ideally wrapped in something to help insulate them (such as newspapers) they stay cold for a long time. In the morning I get in my scruffy clothes and wipe up the puddles caused by the visible frost in the freezer and any puddles formed underneath the appliance. However this is only half the story. To ensure all the frosting has been removed from the hidden parts of the appliance I get my hair dryer and blast warm air into all appropriate crevices from inside the appliance and from behind it.
