Refrigerator not working

I have a kenmore refrigerator (side by side). the freezer section has a lot of ice build up at the back wall and the refrigerator side is not cooling as much. i've had to throw $200 worth of groceries alreayd and have a baby coming in the next 2 weeks. can someone advise if its time to replace the fridge or should i call a technician to have it checked out?

we cleaned the vents below the fridge but, that is still not helping. this is probably the third or the fourth time the problem has come back.

Please respond to me as soon as possible. I need help!!

where is the ice,is it on the food and shelves or is it on the back inside wall of the freezer?if it's on the back inside wall of the freezer you have a defrost problem,bad defrost thermostat,heater,timer or board depending on your model number,if it's on the shelves,door and food packages warm air is getting into the freezer somehow either from the door not closing or the door was left open,could have a bad gasket on the door,the ice chute door could be broke and not closing.let me know what you find and the picture shows a side by side but i'll need the model number too,if it's a side by side or freezer on the bottom the model number should be in the fridge section,on the right hand wall up near the ceiling,if the freezer is on top the number should be on the left side wall in the fridge section up near the ceiling.but with this hot wheather we're having if the door was left open this will happen,you can shut down the machine or unplug it,remove the food from the freezer and melt the ice with a hair dryer,don't do this with the machine running because the hot air will cause the same problem,after the ice is melted you can put the food back in and restart it.

Both the Freezer and the Refridgerator quit working...


Do you have ice build up on the back wall in the freezer? If so you have whats called a defrost problem. (can be timmer, adc, heating element or thermostat)... All cold air in you fridge side come from the freezer, therefore if you have ice build up behind back wall in freezer it is blocking air flow....

Refrigerator not cold.


if the freezer section is still working ok then check for ice build up inside freezer on the back wall, its possible that the unit is not defrosting and ice is building up on the cooling coils, the most common culprit is the def thermostat. easiest way for you to get it going again fast is to manually def the coil.

remove the 2 screws about half way down the back freezer wall. then using a blow dryer def the ice from the coil.

since this refrig has an electronic def control i would recomend calling a reputable service company to check it further for you..

Refrigerator Not Making Ice, Frost in Freezer and Refrigerator Not Cold


It has a defrost problem.  Most likely cause would be the defrost thermostat which clips onto the evaporator behind the back panel in the freezer.  Next most common would be the defrost timer.  Third would be the defrost heater.  Let me know if you want to try to test these parts.  If so I will need the entire model # from the sticker in the fridge or on older models on a plate at the bottom front below the door.
