Question about Refrigerators
First, defrost the unit fully. If there is ice in the air flow channels, it can't cool enough. Most cold air comes from the freezer area into the fridge by these channels. Why did you change the timer? Did you see if the heater element is continous and properly connected to the harness?
Did you clean out the condenser area? If dirty or clogged, you won't cool enough. Do that before anything else. Is the stat set properly?
If the gas level is low, you won't cool enough to run the fridge portion....and you will get icing. Check gas level: Unit off at least an hour. Start it and note the larger of the two pipes coming out of the compressor. It should get cold, frost and then either dry out or get droplets of water on it after at least 10-15 minutes. What happens sooner is unimportant. If it stays frosted, you'll likely need gas.
