It is behind the rear cover in the freezer section, you need to remove the freezer shelfs and bins, you will see the screws on the back panel (remove frost from panel) remove the screws and the heater will be a black element that is mounted on the evaperator it will be shaped like a u each end will have a wire connected to it with no power to the machine dissconnect the wires to the heater and with an ohm meter check for resistance if it has resistance then it is good there is a defrost thermastat mounted on the suction line at the top of the evamerator with it still cold and frozen with the meter check this thermastat it should read resistance
if either of these two parts shoul no resistance the one that does not is bad
if both show resistance then the defrost timer is the problem

Frost is a natural occurrence on the evaporator coils in the freezer compartment of your refrigerator. To prevent frost buildup, a self-defrosting refrigerator warms the coils using a defrost heater several times each day to melt away the frost. This frost melts into water and flows out of the compartment through the drain. If any part of the defrost system is not working properly, the result can be heavy frost buildup that may affect the cooling capacity of the refrigerator.
The defrost timer is a mechanism that tells the defroster how long to run to melt the frost. The limit switch measures the temperature in the freezer and helps to maintain it, while the heater is the key element that melts the frost. Any one of these components could need replacement at a given time, which will result in this over-frosting.
