A few months ago i noticed the refrigerator side was not cooling, the temp. was up to 65 .. the freezer however was frozen and fan was running. I removed everything and unplugged and let it completely thaw as there was a substantial amount of ice build-up on coils in back of freezer. After that the refrigerator started cooling properly. NOW a few months later the same thing and the coils etc. behind panel on freezer side are all froze up again. I was told a common problem is this DEFROST HEATER not working, is that a correct assumption? Thanks for any help

Latest Questions

If I replace the Defrost Timer Switch is it preset or must it be set? I notice that it turns. Our units coils keep freezing up and I am afraid I got the timing messed up by turning the red knob.

Water is dripping from the corners of the lower part of the seal on the freezer door, at the handle end and at the hinge end. The drip is where to seal joins the door, not on the freezer side of the seal (cabinet). The icemaker stopped working 3 days ago. Also, items put in the freezer then did not freeze and frozen goods began to thaw. The drip was noticed yesterday afternoon. I checked the water supply valve and the mesh filter is clear. The freezer is on top with the refrigerator below it. The refrigerator is working fine. I tested the freezer door seal with a sheet of paper and the seal is good against the cabinet. Any ideas on the problem?
