Why must I manually defrost my Kenmore Refrigerator 795.6937?

The refrigerator was new last summer (2010, though it was brought out across the ice in the spring) and seemed to work fine. It is in a seasonal cabin and is not in use from November until May. This year we have had to defrost it three times by shutting it down. Ice-up is apparent in freezer compartment. We are careful to leave room for air flow in the freezer compartment and below. Note the zip code, 55725. Our cabin is on an island. Not an easy place for service. And costly to have to to lose food to spoilage. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Scott. Next time the temperature rises to unacceptable levels I will try the process. Should it appear that I need parts, I will let you know and confirm the issues. I do have an experienced young man who comes to the lake on weekends. I think I can get him to do the checks and then order and install any necessary parts.

Again, my thanks.
