Check under the base, the tube must be clear to the water tray, often there is a rubber flow restrictor, this either perishes or blockes, either way remove it, defrost over night and then turn back on, should then work ok within 24hrs. Regards Adbvisor

If one coil was burnt out and you replaced the heaters and defrost terminator switch I would recheck the continuity through the defrost heaters. You can do this with an Ohm meter with the refrigerator unplugged. If you had an open coil in one of the heaters you did not have to replace the thermo disk. If you have a complete circuit through the heaters try using the old thermo disk. If you have a meter you can check the voltage from the heater connection on one side to the inlet side of the thermo disk with the refrigerator running in the defrost mode. You should read 115-125 Volts on the meter. This reading tells you that the defrost timer is supplying power to the heater circuit.

Defrosters are commonly controlled by a primitive timer and this may have a 'dry' and a 'wet' (humid) climate setting that will cause the defroster to cycle generally every 12 or 24 hours.
If set wrong (by accident or on purpose), it can allow too much frost to accumulate before attempting to defrost.
This can cause a gradual buildup of ice.
Also the heating element for the freezer may have failed open so it never heats at all. The connections that need to be checked are often buried between the in- and outside walls.
The timer is probably still OK since you apparently aren't having a problem on the refrigerator side.

SOURCE: Freezer Not Defrosting
There are 3 componants to most defrosting systems. The defrost heater, the defrost thermostat, and the defrost relay. First you must remove and store your perishables safely. Then remove the panels in the freezer compartment to expose the evaporator. The defrost heaters will be attached to the evaporator and will have wires extending from them. Using an ohmmeter, see if there is continuity across the heater. If not replace it. Find the wiring diagram on the back of the unit and check for voltage into and out of the defrost relay. All of these items should be availible from a local refrigeration supply facilitiy.
