is there any frost on the rear lower panel of the freezer section?.can you hear a fan running in the freezer section? any other abnormal sounds ? thx
when you say behind ,do you mean by the compressor ..or inside the freezer section at the back?
ok that is the cover for the the tubing and wires ,there is a black dome compressor back thee and a fan beside the compressor those should be running , inside the freezer at the rear back panel inside the freezer section do you see any frost?
also inside the freezer there is another fan that should be running when you open the freezer door
is there any frost on the rear panel of that freezer panel ?
is it showing on that lower panel from top to bottom?
ok , that is a defrost issue , the coil is not defrosting , in behind that panel there is a coil ,,there is also a heater and a defrost thermostat , it is usually the thermostat that is the problem ,but both the heater and the thermostat can be checked with a meter for continuity ..

the coil would need to be thawed out with a hair dryer or left off and the part spliced in
if you have a meter you can check each part the heater and the thermostat for continuity ,or replace them both ,up to you ,if you dont have a meter ? 90% of the time its the defrost thermostat or the heater that causes that non defrosting issue
this is the heater
