The freezer defrost sensor is located next to the evaporator. It goes when the temperature in the evaporator is too high. The defrost bi-metal shuts off when it travels. A malfunctioning defrost bi-metal causes frost to build up on the evaporator and causes a warmer freezer interior. The defrost sensor should be replaced if it prevents the heater from working.
