Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today

can you open the freezer and tell me if theres any frost at all on the back wall behind the food ? check real good. you said you unplugged this was there frost last night ?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
There was a little frost on the back of the freezer last nite. I plugged it back in this morning for a bit and the freezer is circulating air now, but not the refrigerator. I unplugged it again.
okay, can you remove the back panel inside the freezer? the very back wall panel behind where your food goes ?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

I can't figure out how to remove the panel


these can be tough. there should be screws holding the panel in do you not see any ?panel # XXXXX on this diagram you need to remove 135C also.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I can't get the panels off. The ice maker would also need to come out and the rails on the side. Too much for a girl like me. Thanks anyway

okay, there is one thing you can try. leave it unplugged for the rest of the day and leave the doors open. this should defrost it by this evening. then plug it back in and try it again

see if air comes through then.

Can you tell me what you think is wrong with it. It's only 2 years old and used by one person. I thought an appliance like this would last for years. I spent enough for it. Could you give me any ideas as to the problem?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
In case I can get some help, could you tell me what to look for when the panels are off?
sorry I had to go out, if you get the panels off look for a lot of frost on the coils, of course you have had this unplugged quite a while so I'm not sure how much you will find now. the problem is either a defrost issue or the damper isn't working. it could be either.
