one the defrost heater itself and the second one is the bi-metal which cuts off the heater in case there is no ice to heat.

Try manual defrost reset
First unplug the unit
from main power outlet. Then empty whole unit completely. Then keep both the
doors open. Wait for 24 hours. All the ice collected on the coils and in the
freezer section will get melted. Clean the water from the sections.
Then Connect the power cord of the unit to main power outlet after 24
hours/.Then set the temperature to normal in both fridge and freezer section.
It will take near to 4 hours to get run in its proper cooling cycle. Then check,
if the problem returns again. If the same problem occurs then it's defrost problem.
The defrost board and the defrost thermostat/heater is not functioning properly
and it has to be checked and replaced. you
can get the required parts from online sites like:---
from searspartsdirect online site.---------
If it's again building up ice
that means the unit is not defrosting. It's starting the cooling procedure, and
then while defrosting, it's not working. The procedure of this unit
is as follows: --- The compressor starts then it cools the freezer section.
When the freezer reaches its cooling level the defrost cycle starts functioning.
In this cycle the fan in the freezer section starts running and the cool air in
the freezer section is passed to the fridge section and the fridge section
gets cold. The air from freezer to refrigerator passes from the section, in
that section the damper is located.
This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

When the freezer section gets cold and reaches
its required cooling temperature, after that the frost on freezer section
starts defrosting and the cooling fan in the freezer section blows this cool
air from freezer to fridge. But if the defrost cycle does not start then over
ice will get collected on freezer ventilations and that will block the
air passing section from freezer to fridge, so the freezer gets cool but fridge
section does not cool.Its defrost problem. Try
manual defrost by unplugging the refrigerator from main power outlet
for 24 hours then reconnect it and check, if the same problem is noticed again,.
If yes then its defrost board problem. The defrost board located in the back of
fridge section. You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com or from
online sears part site. ------------- Thank you.
