If dial is rotating and keeping good time each day, then Trippers might be bad?
Test across terminals 1 and N for 240Volt... if you are not getting 240V, the flip breaker fully off and then fully on. Test for 240V again.
Temporarily disconnect wire on terminal 4, and then temporarily move wire on Terminal 3 to Terminal 1 and see if your defrost heater is working. Heater might be bad.
Disconnect wire on terminal X and see if timer resets.
Buy new timer

Is this a hot gas bypass defroster with a switching valve? If so, the compressor should be on.

Copy following links:

Install defrost trippers on dial at times you want defrost to begin.
8145-20 is generally time initiated, and temperature or pressure terminated... but you can set the defrost duration on smaller center dial..and this setting will terminated defrost cycle mechanically if the pressure or temperature sensor fail. Then manually rotate timer dial until current time lines up with time marker in upper left side.
