  1. How are the door seals, especially the freezer seal?
  2. May I please have your model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
door seals seem okay. 12687701 is written on a seal in back of refrig. Ice maker leaked causing damage to ceiling below so disconnected ice maker.

Is the frost concentrated in one area or all over? Does the light shut off when you close the door?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the frost is only around the ice maker which I am told is turned off. the ice maker leaked and caused damage to the floor below. There is a light in the refrig but I do not see a light in the freezer part.

Ah, that sounds like the ice maker is still hooked up, just no water. If you CAREFULLY feel the bottom of the ice maker, it is warm?
