ok, so i put it into defrost a couple of more times.....each time, after about 20 mins, some more of the ice is gone...but the fridge automatically switches out of defrost.
i've forced it into defrost two or three times already and there's less ice build up right now.

is this normal? should it stay in the defrost mode until all the ice is gone or is what it's doing normal?

when you get home (if the freezer temp. is low enough) we need to determine if the heater is actually coming on for sure. just remove the back wall, put it into defrost, and hold an ice cube to the heater.

ok, will do.
but i can only assume that the heater is working fine....otherwise, like before, i'd have complete ice buildup after only a few hours....

Lets don't assume....once verified, use a hair dryer to assist in defrosting the remainder of the frost so you can hopefully be done done with this once and for all.

at 18 degrees it wont sizzle...has to be 10 or less. Unless the defrost T stat is covered in ice.

At last! i think we're back to normal.
i put it in defrost again yesterday but used a blow dryer like you said....melted all the ice, and ever since then, the temp has been at 2 and 37! and best of all, no ice build up!

:-)
thank you SO much for all of your help. i really appreciate it.

7-13-2010 update:

the temp. has held steady at 1 and 37 for the past 5 days or so....
i went ahead and closed the back........there was a very little bit of ice build up around the metal parts....but i figured that could be either from the lid being open, or that it's normal. maybe i'll defrost once in a while?
Anyway, thank you very very much again.

As long as the coils themselves were not clogged up with frost you are good to go. A little build up around the defrost is normal from time to time. No further defrosting should be required on your part. Sounds like your good to go.
