I believe you are asking where the defrost timer is?

The timer is located on the refrigerator console. The image below should help you locate it. The timer is part key 4.

There may be a small round plug to remove to access the defrost timer knob. With the plug removed you can use a straight edge screwdriver to turn the timer knob and manually put the unit into defrost.

With the unit in defrost you should hear some sizzle and pop from the heater.

After 20-30 minutes the uni should start running again. It it never starts running again then the timer is most likely bad.

The 482493 defrost timer is approximately $32.54 and is available from the following link: Sears PartsDirect .

I don't think your problem is a freon leak or a restriction. It sounds like the defrost is not working and the evaporator coil (at the bottom rear) is frosted over.

Be sure the inside fan motor is running. Open the freezer door with the freezer running and remove the panel below the door. You will see a defrost timer mounted to a plate in the compressor compartment.

Use a flat blade screwdriver to rotate the shaft of the defrost timer clockwise very slowly. When the compressor turns off, the freezer should be in defrost. The defrost cycle will last around 25 minutes. You might need to run the defrost timer through 2-3 cycles to clear the coils.

If the frost melts off the coils, you know the defrost heater and defrost thermostat are working. If this is what happens, replace the defrost timer.

You can order the defrost timer at [www.partsdirect.com?sid=MMLxexpertxmerch]. The part number is 482493, and the price is $32.54.

The information you have received is good but it's not for this model. A good check for this unit will be to, manually turn the defrost timer knob very slow, until it makes a loud click and quits running. The timer is located in the control housing (see picture). When the unit quits, after a few minutes you should be able to hear some hissing and popping inside the freezer. If you do hear this, it means the element is on. The noise is from the ice melting on the element. In this case the timer # 482493 will need to be replaced. The timer will cost $32.54 not including shipping and tax. To get a total cost, you can call 1-800-469-4663 and someone there, may be able to help you. If nothing happens, some voltage and resistance checks will need to be made. A technician will be needed to make these checks. I'm listing a site you can access, to have a tech come out. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services . I hope this will help you.
