Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

The coil keeps freezing up because the unit has a defrost issue that needs to be fixed, the automatic defrost is not working in the refrigerator section most times that is caused by a bad defrost thermister, the thermister is built into the wiring harness for the evaporator area so you have to buy and replace the entire harness but it just unplugs at the top of the evaporator so its not that big of a deal,. the part you need to order and replace is listed below:

Refrigerator Wire Harness

Part #: W10277799 - click here for part info
