Question about Kenmore 73502 / 73504 / 73509 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
It will not defrost. Ice is building up on the back of the freezer and on the left side of the right hand freezer drawer. Where is the defrost timer control? Could this be the problem?
While the freezer is cold, cut out defrost thermostat and measure
resistance, if open, replace, if it's ok check defrost heater.
Temporarily short the wires that went to the defrost thermostat and now force defrost.
If no defrost, you have a bad adaptive defrost board.

thermostat cycles the refrigerator on and off. The refrigerator
normally runs as long as the temperature inside the refrigerator is
higher than the set temperature. If the temperature inside the
refrigerator is cold enough and the thermostat still does not cycle
off, the thermostat may be defective. If so, you need to replace it,
because it cannot be repaired.
If the thermostat is not defective, you may have a problem with the sealed (refrigerant) system, in which case you should contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

Excessive ice build up on the shelves or walls will fool the thermostat into not coming turning the compressor on
Do Not use any sharp objects to scrape or chip ice in the freezer as you may damage the coils, which are the shelves or walls in a manual defrost freezer. You can use a hair dryer, shop vac, a fan setting in front of the freezer with the door propped open or set pans of hot water on the shelves to help melt the ice. If you poke a hole in the coils and the freon leaks out, start looking for a new freezer as it will not be worth repairing.
