Hi Bryan, the model # XXXXX XXXXX WW. Yes, there is frost in the back of the freezer!

ok you have a defrost problem in this , you will need to remove the back panel and take a hair dryer and dfrost all the coils completely, then you will need to replace the defrost heater in this, i will get you that info shortly, in the meantime start defrosting this, when you get the back panel off let me know if there is allot of frost covering all the coils. heavy frost all the way through them. I'll be back shortly. thanks Bryan
