    Hey Robert, I hope you've had some luck trying to figure out how to disable your freezer's auto defrost feature. I am definitely not an appliance expert, but I would bet there are plenty of people in your area who could help you out. I would probably start with a google search for appliance repair, but that's just me.

Larry, I want to disable the auto defrost or frost free function on my 20cu ft kenmore freezer

You could disconnect the power to the defrost timer or the heating element itself. I suspect that accessing the timer would be much easier that the heater - but I don't know which model fridge you have.

Ice build up in refrigerator. Not cooling

Fault in the auto defrost section. shut off the fridge and defrost , check onthe thermostat , faulty lines wire breaks due to frost. if not trace the wires to the auto defrost timer. check the heater continuity/resistance. When the fridge is started back check the timer and see if the auto defrost works. If not check thermostat and the timerr contacts or if it is running. if not replace.

Center Column is getting hot

Generally that means your auto defroster system is defective. It could be a simple switch/sensor. See if you can find a switch to turn off the AUTO DEFROSTER and see if that solves it. If it does, then you have a sensor problem. If it does not, then you might have a short in the system and it would be advisable to have a certified technican look at your unit. If it is a short and it is in the walls, then you are probably S.O.L and might have to disable the defroster and live with it and just be required to manually defrost your refer unit it truly dies. Reason being, if it is in the walls, it is cost prohibative to open the walls and repair a refers wiring, tubes and other components in the foam and such. Sorry for the tough news. Lets hope the techincan you have come out finds a cheap easy fix for you.

If the refrigerator is not icing up it could be the defrost thermostat making the defrost cycle initiate every time the defrost timer makes defrost available. I do not recommend by-passing the defrost cycle, have the switch checked and replaced if needed.
