The problem is most likely to be the defrost heater Check the back of the freezer compartment for frost If you have frost on the back wall of the freezer compartment you will need to unplug the unit and remove everything from.it next get several towels to place on the bottom of the freezer to catch the water from the melting frost Using a hairdryer heat the frosted area to defrost remove the back panel of the freezer under it you will see a frosted up mess after defrosting you will see one or 2 heaters mounted on metal brackets they unplug and can be tested using a ohmmeter or continuity tester also check the defrost thermostat an replace defective items.put it together you should be all set
Hi yes the flap will cause the frost, you need to replace the solenoid that controls that flap, if this is a side by side, the solenoid is behind the dispenser controls on the freezer door, you take off the control board, and then remove the little mount behind that it has 4 screws and you will see solenoid on right side, it needs to be replaced.
The flap door that opens to let ice drop out of the door has a bad seal or the plastic mounting arm is cracked or broken,this is allowing moisture to enter and turn to frost.This will continue to happen until the flap door is repaired,and sealing correctly.
The defroster is on a timer usually locater in the roof of the refrigerator. Turn it until it shuts the compressor down. Use your thumbnail. It should start up again on it's own. If you're having frost problems, look for mouse damage in the back of the unit, where the pipes come through.
