by now, you probably have defrosted your "frost-free" refrigerator, and it's working fine.
in a refrigerator which has a self-defrosting feature,
not sure? the defrost timer advances like a clock. mark the inner dial and make an opposite mark on the housing. come back in a half hour and see if it moved. if it moved, the timer motor is probably ok.
so get your digital multimeter out and follow the schematic which is hopefully on the back of the refrigerator.
or, check the year of manufacture. old=costs too much to run it compared to the new energy efficient refrigerators.
