This is a Sears Amana/Maytag refrigerator that has the Jazz control board.

Page 37 of this service manual tells how to force defrost mode.

Use the tech sheet that AJ gave you. You can put this box into a diagnostic mode. Most likely everything will test as good. If your having a defrost issue I would replace the control board and both thermistors. I work on a lot of these and if you do it right the first time you won't have a problem.
