Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.
The fridge cools by stealing air from the freezer, so if frost is build up behind the lower back panel inside the freezer, that stops the air from going to the refrigerator section. You'll need to thaw out all the frost with a hair dryer and that will get it working again. To prevent the frost from coming back you'll need to see what defrost component has failed. By far the most likely culprit is the defrost control board up inside the control panel of the refrigerator section so below is a link to the part. If you have a multimeter you can test continuity through the defrost heater that runs along the bottom of the frosted silver coils and the defrost thermostat which clips onto the top of the frosted silver coils. If either one of them does not have continuity---replace it. If they both have continuity, replace the defrost control board.
