Barry, I replaced the thermistor and the defrost sensor and it was no help. So I replaced the mother board, still no help. Sitting overnight the freezer does not freeze a 12 oz bottle of water. Both settings on 9. Just to review what I have done so far.....
Freezer does not freeze the bottle of water
cleaned the condensor coil (located on the outside lower left corner next to the compressor)
verified that the condensor fan runs
verified that the evaporator fan runs (inside the freezer section located at the back)
seemed like the defrost heater was coming on several times during the day, so
replaced the defrost sensor
replaced the thermistor
replaced the mother board
Even though the fridge side feels cold the freezer side does not freeze the 12 oz bottle of water overnight
To much money, the estimate is $412 so I did a bandaid, put a piercing valve on it and added a little freon, hope it lasts a while.....the fridge sat unplugged for a couple of months, I think with the system unpressurized the freon escaped, I am hoping that under pressure it will be okay. Never could find evidence of a leak (oil deposits).
