Question about Hoover Refrigerators
SOURCE: We have a Westinghouse WSE6100SA
This could also be an issue with simply too much food in the fridge blocking some of the air channels or that there are containers in there which are uncovered which contribute to high humidity in the box.The unit may also be left open too much.
Before blaming the manufacturer/servicer...let's look at the usage cycle. This ice is coming from somewhere! Do a full defrost of the unit. Keep it closed after loading in food. What is the temperature in the box? 40F in the fridge and 0 F in the freezer is about right. Use an outdoor thermometer and check after an hour of closed door.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer
are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of
cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.
How to check everything
check , defrost heater, defrost thermostat. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the adaptive defrost control. Part 13 in this diagram.

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.
