remove the inside back panel in the freezer and tell me if the coil is covered in frost from side to side and from bottom to the top please
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I defrosted it two hours ago it had about a hand size spot towards the bottom in the center the freezer on the coils. the bottom vents I can see a little ice in the line like a a/c on a car on the cold side now.
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 2 years ago.
how old is this fridge, 5 years or less?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

2006

Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 2 years ago.
shows to be 5 years old which is great for you, you have a sealed system problem (freon leak) and the fridge comes with a 5 year sealed system warranty so you need to call and set up a service call and if the leak cant be fixed then they will have to replace the fridge with a new one ,, thanks and have a great new year
