The freezer is cold, but the refridgerator is warm. There appears to be a build up of ice in the back of the freezer. We completely defrosted it 3 days ago now it is frozen up again and same issue.
It sounds like you may have a defrost problem with the unit. Check and see if there is any frost build up on the back wall of 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
Hello I have two fridge one of them is not cooling well in the top. Can it be the timer? The other unit leaks from the inside.
Answer Hello Joel. Cooling issue can be a bad fan motor, or cold control, or sealed system issue. As for the unit with the water issue, it sounds like the drain is clogged.

Noise from motor in freezer compartment.
Answer Hello Ronald. If the noise is coming from the fan motor, you will need to look for parts rattling against things. If none is found, replace the fan motor.
I was told I need to replace the defrost component to repair my refrigerator. Is the control defrost the same thing as the defrost timer? My freezer works but my frige is not cooling.
Answer Hello John. Yes, the defrost control WR09X10049 is the same thing as the defrost timer. If the timer is good, you will need to test the heater and the thermostat if there is a defrost problem. They should read closed for continuity when cold. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
I hear a soft intermittent knock coming from area of defrost control.
Answer Hello Gerald. It is normal for the timer to tick. However, if it does not cycle, you will need to replace the timer WR09X10049. Hope this helps.
