Answer Hello Jenay. 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

My refrigerator is a MOD.#HSS25GFPDWW freser is frosen ,Do I need the Heater coil or th defrost thermostat?
If the evaporator coils are impacted with ice you will want to do a continuity test on the defrost heater and thermostat. If either does not have continuity then it will need to be replaced. If both check ok then you will want to check the resistance of the defrost thermistor. If the thermistor checks ok then you would need a main control board. If the thermistor does not have proper reading then replace the thermistor. The thermistor resistance reading should be 42.5K ohm at 0 degrees.
