We have had this refrigerator for about 4 years and a few months ago it started leaking water in the bottlom of the refrigerator side. When I pulled all the shelves out I noticed that there was ice forming all along the back and inside behind everything. I tried removing the ice with a hair dryer but now everything in the bottom too trays freezes. My guess is there is some type of fan that is not working properly. Since then we bought a new refrigerator. I was curious to what caused the issue with our old refrigerator so from the inside I took apart some of the back panel and discovered a fan. It does not appear that this fan is working. Is it possible to order this part so I can keep my old refrigerator?
ANSWER Hello Richard. Try it now and see if the fan comes on. If so, the ice had the fan stopped and you will require a sealed system repair to the unit. If not, and there is power to the fan motor, replace the fan motor. If there is no power, replace the main control board. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
