How do I repair a Defrost System in a Refrigerator?

The frost from the evaporator is melted by the refrigerator, automatic defrost system. The compressor stops, the heating element turns on, and the frost starts to melt. There is a drain pan next to the compressor in the machine compartment where the condensate flows through a drain tube. The water left the drain pan before the next thaw. Diagnostic and repair the problem if the defrost process fails.
