Fridge compressors have a start capacitor that is required to power the motor windings on start up . outside near or on the sealed unit you may find a reset button. Try that or try replacing the start capacitor
Move the frozen food into the refrigerator side and turn off the freezer. Leave the door open to help it thaw quicker. A blow dryer helps to speed things up. When the line thaws, turn the freezer back on and move the frozen food back over. I am curious why it froze. Was the freezer temperature set too low or has anyone been inside the door to move the water line or insulation???
I believe that your refrigerator may need a new 12002495 or 1184282 Adaptive Defrost Control You can find it inside the fresh food section and behind the controls for temperature. Not sure about the buzzing sound yet but the moisture and thawing of the frozen food points to a defrost problem. Need you to unplug and have a look at the adaptive defrost control. Would not hurt to open the back panel in the rear of freezer and defrost if needed and need someone to check the defrost heater and defrost thermostat. Sea Breeze
If you found something lodged in the door that may have kept it open for a while, i suspect frost formed on the coils behind the panel. Frost will not let air pass through the coils to the refrigerator side. This is one of the most common problems there is. If you look through the louvers on the rear panel that is for sure your problem. It most likely just needs thawed out. After it is thawed out, your normal defrosting routine will take over again and hopefully you will be trouble free again.
The freezer is supposed to thaw at least everyday. Only, you usually kant tell because it doesn't do it long enough to melt the food so you don't notice it. You have a couple of components to check here. 1 is the defrost timer, which unless it has been changed recently, has the same pre determined defrost time. So you would have noticed by now. Next is the defrost termination switch. If you have excess ice on the evaporator, this will make the defrost longer than before. Unless the switch is going bad causing the defrost to go extra long, there is an excess amount of ice that is more than usual. Bad door seal will cause this. A slightly low freon charge. And a thermostat that is malfunctioning, causing the freezer to run continuously, will make excess ice buildup in the freezer. I would make sure the kids aren't leaving the door open and the gaskets are good. If not the case, call a repairman.
You have a failed component or components in your automatic defrost system. This is why you have excessive frost inside the freezer along the back wall. The timer could be stuck in run mode. The defrost thermostat (bi-metal) could be defective or the defrost heater could be open or shorted.
