yes I do
ok , great , you need to remove the back panel inside the freezer and defrost the coils with a hair dryer, its probably really clogged with frost, get them nice and clean, then on the bottom under the coils is the defrost heater, unplug the refrigerator and remove the heater, check it for continuity, if none replace it, you can order this @ thanks Bryan
