Too much water on fresh food compartment condensation. What is the problem?

Jose A. for Model Number AT17M4A

ANSWER Hello Jose, This sounds like you have a defrost issue. One of three components have failed. The defrost heater 60106-34, the defrost thermostat 52085-28, or the defrost timer 68233-1. Try this: Disconnect the power from the unit. remove the freezer and fresh food compartment doors. Remove the center divider channel from the unit. Remove the freezer floor by pulling up and out. Remove the Styrofoam freezer coil cover. It is very important not to damage this part because it has to be reinstalled in the exact same position it was in to begin with. If ice is present, use a hair dryer to melt the ice away since you CANNOT break it. Test the components as necessary. NOTE, If the defrost thermostat is above 15°F, testing it will not produce a favorable result. I usually just replace it since it is a cheap part and it is a major ordeal to access.
