Question about Refrigerators
The frost build up is blocking the flow of cooling air from reaching the refrigerator section. If you take the cover off the frosted area and melt the frost off with a hair blower your refrigerator will work fine for a few days to a couple weeks, and then the problem will show up again. You need to determine why it is not defrosting by itself. You do not list the model number or even an aproximate age of your unit, so I can not be very specific with a solution. Test the defrost heater and then look at the defrost control timer. Also, look for any signs of air leakage into the refrigerator, such as a poor gasket (look at the bottom of the fresh foods gasket in particular) or a dispenser area if your model has a through the door ice dispenser.
