Hi,is there any frost on the back wall of the freezer panel?
can you hear the fan running in the freezer section?
I hear the fan running in the freezer section, as for frost on the freezer, the very back of the freezer, there is frost .
ok ,you have a defrost problem,there should be no frost back there,that fan draws air across the coil and blows a small portion up to the fridge thru the damper,but when the evaporator frosts up ,air flow stops to the fridge,its going to be one of 3 parts,heater defrost thermostat,or timer/board,
the heater and defrost thermostat can be checked with continuity in behind that panel the timer/board is a bit more complex
heater is usually pretty good i would suspect the thermostat possibly timer/board,but the back panel would need to be removed and the parts checked,and coil cleared of frost
no,the parts are in behind the freezer panel ,where the frost is located,continuity for the thermostat and heater,thermostat is a round bulb with 2 wires,and no that would not release any freon,these are the electrical components,the board sends power through the thermostat on to the heater to melt the ice if the thermostat or heater is open you get the ice build up and the resulting no airflow issue..let me know if any problems
I fixed the problem- luckly it was just the timer so I didnt have to take apart the freezer area. It gave me a good chance to clean the fridge anyhow and throw out the even more rotten stuff. Your advice was right on the money , thanks so much for getting back to me so fast and giving me the backup I might have needed.
no problem glad to help out
