Question about Refrigerators
SOURCE: Fridge part now working
Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.
What your describing is a result of either an automatic defrosting problem or an Air Damper problem.
Here is what you can do to determine if it is a defrost issue or an Air Damper issue.
1. Unplug the unit
2. Empty the freezer section ONLY contents
3. Place a fan blowing into the freezer section for a little over 2 hours. NOTE: This will make a water mess so be prepared.
4. After the manual defrosting session with the fan re-load the freezer contents and plug the unit back in.
5. Check food section temps in about 4 hours.
NORMAL temps you have an automatic defrost problem
WARM temps you have an Air Damper Problem.
Either of the above will require further troubleshooting or service. At least you will know where to start or... what to tell a service person.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I am on my fourth timer for this problem. Seems to fix the problem each time. You must remove the big chunk of ice covering the drain hole before you operate the fridge with the new timer. The contacts in the timer get burnt due to arcing inside the switch. The heating element seems to always work ok, but if the element is no good the fridge will not defrost.
