Replace hinges or the screws for the hinges with slightly bigger
screws.thaw out the fridge outside check and reglue the seals with goop
glue.let dry completly before reuse adjust the humidity to low ( if
possible)or dont have it on so cold to prevent a rehap.

On humid days, when you open the freezer door this moist air enters the freezer, then freezes to form frost. Try not to keep the freezer door open for very long. There is really nothing that can be done to prevent the frost. If the problem is much worst than in the past, check the seal around the door for any cracks or holes. If it is defective, replace it with a new seal.
Check the freezer door gasket! Frost build up along the front edge of the freezer indicates a poor or broken seal. It could also be packaging or plastic bags on top of the freezer getting into the door opening and allowing moist room air into the freezer--make sure nothing on top of the refrigerator is getting into the door or jamming it open.
First of all is this top freezer/refridgerator new or has the consumer had it for awhile? If not new, could have frozen food, piece of ice, etc obstructing the door. If you have frost(ice build-up) you could probably turn down the temp adjustment, might not need to be quite so cold, just a suggestion. Open the door and check the seal for damage, there is a magnetic strip in the seal that sticks to the body of the fridge keeping it shut along with vacuum etc. Check seal before calling service (800) # for further advice/ servicing. Good luck, best regards.
try checking the freezer door seal.
if slight gap anywhere around the door seal drawer fronts will frost up.
warm seal up with hair dryer and ease seal out with your hands..
problem often happens with door reversal.
This excess frosting can be caused by leaky door gaskets, frequent door opening, dispenser door not closing good, anywhere air can get in. Gaskets should hold a dollar bill sung all the way around both doors.
Its a two person job. One person has to looses up the two hidges holding the door just slightly while the other person holds the door in place. Once in place tighten the screw/bolts for the hidges back up and check. If not aligned, redo it again until it is aligned and seals properly..
In a frost-free refrigerator/freezer the frost that would normally accumulate on the inside wall of the freezer is removed by heaters imbedded in the freezer's walls. Periodically these heaters are turn on to melt the frost which then exits the freezer as liquid water through a drain in bottom. This water accumulated in a pan underneath the refrigerator and is supposed to be removed by evaporation. If the flow of melted frost from the freezer is greater than the evaporation rate in the pan then the pan will overflow and you will get a pool of water on your floor. A bad seal on the freezer door will allow more frost to form inside. Also if you leave the freezer door open a lot you will accumulate more frost. The evaporation rate in the pan can be affected by the ventilation around it. If the vents on the bottom of your refrigerator are clogged with dust it will decrease the evaporate rate in the pan. In addition, many refrigerators have a fan the pulls air around the pan. If this fan has stopped working the evaporation rate in the pan will also decrease.
You are probably correct that it is the evap motor. If you are seeing frost on the back wall then there is probably some ice built up around the motor and the fan blade is hitting it. Try defrosting the freezer and look very closely all around the seal for the freezer drawer. It is common for moisture to freeze in the self closers in the drawer rails and not let the drawer close completely on one side or the other. If this happens the small gap will allow the freezer to frost excessively. Sorrry to be slow in responding. I have been very busy this week and have not been on line very much. Mike
