Hello. I have the refrigerator model 106.70844102. three times in different days at the morning I found the refrigerator totally defrosted and after cleaning it started to work again normally. I checked the power cord and plug and the power outlet and all was OK. I wonder if you can help in finding the problem.
It sounds like the defrost timer may be the issue of the unit not cooling. When the unit shuts down if you go into the refrigerator section and on the bottom of the control there is a hole that you can insert a flat blade screwdriver and turn the dial the unit should kick on. If it does then the timer would need to be replaced.
What would cause the ice to melt then the water to refreeze.
Answer Hello Doug. It could be the cold control sticking or the defrost timer sticking on the unit. You will need to check both parts on the unit.
