Sounds like the defrost timer is malfunctining and leaving on the heaters that melt the ice. or it may have just came out of defrost. take and feel the lines where they go into the compressor in the back. watch out for the fan blade when doing this. one should be cold and one hot. if not then the compressor may not have enought refrigerant in it. anothe thjing to check is the coils are they clean. the oines that are underneath are what i'm talking about. if they are not oyou will have toi clean them. good luc and let me know if you need more advice.

Have you checked the thermal overload on the compressor.It should be mounted on the side of the compressor to feel the heat and shut it down if need be.

Freezer does not get cold


If you open the door and the light comes on then you have power. If you don't hear the compressor motor at the back running but you hear a intermittent clicking noise coming from back there, then you have a faulty starting device for the compressor or a seized compressor motor.

It appears your compressor has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
