If you open the freezer door does yo see any frost or ice on the rear interior wall panel?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
No. We took off the panel on the interior wall to expose the coils, and there was hardly any frost build-up.

ok good info!

Can you pull the unit out and remove the rear inspection cover.

Then look at the Condenser fan and tell me if it IS running or not?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
it is running

ok if the condenser fan is running and you have just a small amount of frost on the coil then you would have sealed refrigeration system issue.

Low on refrigerant or the compressor is pumping but not pumping the full volume of refrigerant thru it.

Which means your looking at around $500-as much as $800 to have it repaired ,it may be time to start looking for a new refrigerator.

If you have any questions just reply back to me.
