Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today

can you open the freezer section and check the back wall behind your food real good and see if theres any frost at all on it ? just scrape it with your fingernail.

okay, that means you have a defrost issue. now there are a couple of reasons this is happening. 1 your defrost thermostat is bad. Defrost Thermostat 67003426 Main Product View 2 the defrost heater has failed, Defrost Heater Assembly 67002493 Main Product View or 3 the board has failed again. do you have a volt meter ? (multimeter)
