Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
you most likely have a bad adaptive defrost board, this is the most common problem in this ref.the original boards from the factory , I get after market boards for these because if you use original board they fail also. this is the original board .Part 948430first thing you needs to do is remove the panel in tghe back of freezer and defrost coils with a hair dryer. when thats done put back together and let it start cooling again.go to http://www.apconline.com/ and call them . they have the after market boards that work correctly this is the original part #
12002104 and tell them you need the after market on that replaces this .her is a diagram of the ref. its part # XXXXX on this diagram

Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
ok on the diagram i sent you its part # XXXXX this is located in the refrigerator section. you need to remove the entire cover where you controls are. you will see two 1/4 " screws and two phillip head screws you need to remove these then in the very back you will find two slots for your finger put your fingers in the slots and pull forward and the assembly will come forward and down , then the defrost control wiil be in the back right corner, let me know how you do on this. thanks Bryan
