Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name isXXXXX will be helping you with your appliance issue today.


take that panel off in the back of the inside and check the frost on the coils, is there any?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
very little on pipe that comes through back and connects to coil, no frost on coils
thats bad, it means its losing its freon. the coils should be evenly frosted , you will need a tech to check this for a leak and refill with freon, sorry for the bad news, thanks Bryan
