It sound like your defrost system has a problem and each time you unplug, the frost goes away and thefrig works ok until frost builds up again. Yoou need to see if it is defrost timer, defrost coil, or defrost thermostat. Now you need to be a good tech person to find each item and know how to test each part. I'll tell you the coil and stat are in the back of the freezer compartment, the timer is either under the frig(front) or in the frig compartment near the cold control. goodluck, macgivor

Could be a fan problem, open the door and hold the door switch in, the fan should start and you should be able to feel air coming out the vents (air flow is not very strong as it comes out many vents so you will feel a cold breeze rather than a strong air flow if it is normal. Also check if you can see any ice nuild up in the back of the freezer as it may be a defrost problem and the air can't flow due to the ice build up, if this the case it will need to be looked at.

Sounds like the fan unit is faouling with ice. The solution is to remove the whole of the contents and then the units inside at the rear. Defrost same and re assemble. Its not that hard if you remove the light difuser first and the two screws. Mark the difuser for top. Then ease out the unit and remove after taking out the electrical connections. They fit only one way. The lower unit has four screws. Two under covers. Easy to unclip. The ice seal may mean that it is not that easy to remove. Defrost both the units with a hairdryer or similar and clear insulation from the fan drain. Re assemble when clear and as dry as you can. The problem will come back so be aware that you have to repeat the procedure when the fan gives signs of fouling. Paul.

If the leak is not too big, then water comes from condensation. Water condensing inside the fridge is supposed to be conveyed toward the drain hole inside the fridge. From there the water should normally go to the drain try located in the compressor assembly.
What usually happens is that the drain hole gets clogged with frozen water, and the condensed water ends at the bottom of the fridge. The problem is fixed defrosting the fridge. In some sporadic case it is necessary to remove drain hole blockage using a thin and flexible drain rod.
Do a complete defrost, that should fix the problem.
Here all parts and diagrams for this fridge.
