Its defrost problem.--------- When you open the freezer door, then ice starts getting defrosted, because outside temperature is warm and due to that inside ice gets bit melted.---------
The working procedure of
this unit is as follows: --- The compressor starts then it cools the freezer
section. When the freezer reaches its cooling level the defrost cycle starts
functioning. In this cycle the fan in the freezer section starts running and
the cool air in the freezer section is passed to the fridge section
and the fridge section gets cold. The air from freezer to refrigerator passes
from the section, in that section the damper is located. ----------- The damper
is operated by a motor.Its a complete damper assembly with motor included in
it.--The damper has door.Which closes and open with the help of motor.In your
case the damper door is blocked by ice, because your refrigerator is not defrosting.But when you open the freezer door, the inside ice gets bit warm and it starts melting and this lets the fridge section get cool.-------------------
In this case you will have to manually defrost the ice and inspect, if the problem solves.For manual defrost procedure, click the link below:--------
