Frost and ice build up in the freezer. Ice melted in the ice bin. upper portion warm and lower portion bin cold.
Removed the panel. cleaned most of the ice. kept the equipment unplugged for two days till all the ice melted and the evaporator coils fully dry and cleaned.
Restarted and it worked normal for about 10 days. The problem reappeared. The inside left panel on the refrigerator side was found warm.
ANSWER Hello Ram. It sounds like you may have a defrost problem with the unit. Check and see if there is any frost build up on the evaporator coils in the freezer. If so, you will need to test the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. They should read closed for continuity when cold. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. I will include a link at the end to assist you how to use the multi-meter if needed. If both parts are good, you will need to replace the defrost timer. Once the problem is repaired, you will need to thaw out the ice on the coils before the unit will operate properly. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
