Is there any frost on the back wall of the freezer?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
yes there is

OK, this is a defrosting issue. There are three parts in this system that remove frost from the evaporator. The defrost heater, thermostat, and timer. One of these parts has gone bad. If you have a meter to check for continuity, I can walk you through testing.


If the unit does not defrost, then air can not circulate into the refrigerator.

water was leaking into fridge right before it went out does that help?
That means the frost is blocking the drain in the freezer. Both problems are connected, this is a defrosting issue.
