The above link contains all the parts to your refrigerator.
timer
heaters
terminator thermostat.
 The glass heater tubes(2) will usually look all black on the ends like a worn out flourescent  bulb.
If you have a meter you could check them for continuity.
Or you could force defrost by manually advancing the timer.
You need to remove the inside rear panel to access these heaters. Even though the terminator thermistat may be ok, it is recommended to be replaced when the heater assembly is replaced.

inot66:
how far should i advance the timer?
thanks

JWWebster:
Just keep turning it till you hear a click.

thank you,bonnie
