Default Freezer problem/Refrigerator

There's a black wire in my freezer that heats up from time to time(I'm assuming the automatic defroster) Well it heats up TOO often and won't let my fridge stay cool asit should be. I unplug the wire...the fridge cools down great, but the freezer frosts up bigtime. Is there a simple fix or is it gonna be a major replacement/repair job? The fridge is only 7 years old. It's a Kenmore if anyone wants to know.

Sounds like a stuck or bad defrost timer..... If your handy with a tool box, it shouldn't be anything that major.... I'm sure somebody on here knows for sure.....

Sounds like the defrost timer is defective. Should be able to purchase and install yourself very easily.

Sounds kind of like the problem I have. Does your freezer stay frozen when the timer is plugged in ?

Since it is a combo unit you might want to check the defroster heat coil before you spend money on a switch. It is behind the back cover inside the freezer. There should be two heating coils..one might of shorted out. They are incased in a glass tube. There was a thread about this a few months ago. My money is on the defroster switch.
