Question about Kenmore Elite 22.4 cu. ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator with Adjusta Cube Ice Maker
Kenmore bottom freezer keeps icing up fins in the back of freezer. It keeps food cold but is set at lowest cold setting. It has a 8 hr defrost timer. It will take ice off fins if I put it in defrost mode manually. But will not take ice off by itself when it is all froze up in the back. I took the cover off the inside back of the freezer so I can keep an eye on it. So when it starts icing up, out comes my wifes hair dryer and I go to work on it. I am so tired of doing this for a month now. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

SOURCE: bad defrost timer/ thermostat???
It definitely sounds like you have a bad defrost timer, that is the reason the coils are icing up on you. The next issue, which may or may not be related is the freezing of items in the refrigerator. Usually the cold air is transferred, through a vent with a damper, from the freezer and into the refrigerated section. The "thermostat" for this section is actually usually just a lever to adjust the position of the damper. That being said, usually when you have a problem such as you are having, it is either a stuck or broken damper (or damper component). Hope this helps
