In my refrigerator, the ice maker does not work and in the freezer all the food is still frozen, however in the refrigerator side the temp. Is warm. Can you please explain what the problems could be. Thank you
Answer Sebastian, There are several possibilities, First, check the freezer back wall for a build up on frost or ice, if there's a build up you may have a defrost issue. While in the freezer compartment, listen and "feel" for the air movement from the evaporator fan W10128551. Then move over to the refrigerator compartment, remove the cover in the left rear corner and check the auto damper 67003519 and make sure the damper door is not stuck or sticking closed.
