i'mm back , to get it running right you have to remove back panel in freezer nad take a hair dryer and defrost all the ice on coils. dont use anything but hair dryer! no screwdrivers ect. you can damage coils if you hit them with something, once all the ice is gone put panel back on and let it run. when I come back from work today we will check to see whats causing problem. this will give it time to cool back down so we can test. thanks again Bryan , please press accept, we can still work on it even after you accept. thanks again Bryan
