initiate defrost in most Frigidaires by pressing ff light switch 5 times in 6 seconds. The light bulb must be working.

Appliantology is, however appliances are not, an exact science for I know there are a few refrigerators that actually hate me.

The simplest explanation is most likely the correct and least expensive one, unless it's your compressor or motherboard" Occam as an appliantologist

Good call tpoin! Wasn't sure if this model had that interface. I thought it may have so that's why I said "most" frigidaires. Couldn't remember which service manual to check since Frigidaire uses the dumbest method of labeling their manuals i've seen.

from the GLHS68EGSB2 tech sheets:

NOTE
This product comes equipped with an Electronic Defrost Control.

To initiate defrost, depress the fresh food light switch 5 times in 6 seconds (light bulb must be working).

To terminate defrost, depress the fresh food light switch 5 times in 6 seconds.
