I will do my best to take the information that you provide to me and make a Diagnosis for you to be able to repair your own Appliance.

Since the compressor suction line is frosting over ,you either have the freezer Evaporator coil frozen up and no air flow over the Evaporator coil OR the unit is low on refrigerant.

Open the freezer door and look on the rear interior wall panel ,do you see any frost or ice on the rear wall panel?

Not in the freezer door no. I even took the whole thing off and there was nothing. No ice build-up at and drain was clear

This is just a guess on information I'm giving you but I'm used to seeing the evaporator fan constantly on. But the refrigerator was on and the freezer door switch was pressed down and the light turned off but the fan would not come on until 5 - 10 minutes later. And even after that it turned back off after 5 minutes or so. It seems to be turning off more often than I'm used to seeing but again that's a guess on my part. And the fan does work when I tested it.

ok if you had an issue with the freezer Evaporator fan under normal operating conditions the Freezer coil would be icing up .

And if you have no frost on the Freezer Evaporator coils but the suction line in the rear next to the compressor is frosting up ,then you have a unit that is low on refrigerant .

How old is this unit?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

are you sure that you had no frost build up on the freezer coil that would restrict air flow across the coil ?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

do you have any frost on the rear wall in the fresh foor side?

Fresh food side I don't see any. Freezer I took the entire panel off and no major ice buildup only a little on the evaporator betweenr the evaporator and panel but no where else like a pancake to size of a dollar but not blocking the airway.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
No ice need the fan. It's a very odd pattern. Nearly nothing. And this was when it was on and not defrosted prior.

ok so your saying you has a small ball of frost /ice on the evaporator coil? normally this would be on the top right hand corner of the coil if you had one.

It's not a ball like I'm used to seeing on the incoming line but a slither pancake in between the panel I took of and the evaporator
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
No ice anywhere else
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Right below the fan but not near the blades
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I don't have enough a picture unfortunately

ok I think the best thing to do is to call for a in home service call .

I suspect you have a sealed refrigeration system issue.

Is there a fresh food evaporator fan also? is there also maybe a damper door that would fail?

yes this unit has a Fresh food Evaporator motor also.

And no this unit does not have a damper door since it has two separate evaporators .
