I opened the kick panel on the bottom and carefully vacuumed everything I could reach, but improvement was only marginal.
Do I need to replace whatever thermostat controls the defrost cycle?

I found a wiring diagram behind the kickplate and while it contains light, refrigerator fan, condenser, and condenser fan, there is no mention of defrost coils or defrost timer. Does a refrigerator-only appliance not require a defrost system?
Refrigerator fan seems to work normally (comes on when door is close).
Light works normally.

Where is the defroster? I see nothing that looks like a timer or heater? Is the timer built into the cold control? Are the silver lines the defrosting elements?

Then I wrote that I disassembled the refrigerator to reach its innards. By this time I observed that the evaporator had a light frost on it.
So...heavy ice on the fridge liner, light frost on the coils. I did turn off the refrigerator before I began the disassembly, which took about 1/2 hour because I did it carefully. Did heavy ice melt from the evaporator during disassembly? Not sure.
Thanks for the help.

The thermostat in the top of the frig seems to click on sometimes when I move it and then it won't. I thought it was too full and then I thought the door was not closed by visitors. But, all in all, it's mostly warm (luckily I have other frig's in the garage).
