Most are inside the fresh food compartment. Some have defrost timers and others have the Adaptive Defrost Boards. Your model number will look like MSD2758GEW for example. Sea Breeze

The freezer over freezers then defrosts its self

There is a electronic part inside of the fresh food compartment behind the Control Panel that is most likely responsible for this=> 61005988 Adaptive Defrost Control
Click here for photo location of the => 61005988 Adaptive Defrost Control The way you explain I believe you are saying it freezes over and then decides to defrost. The defrost thermostat and defrost heater also maybe the reason. I go by the odds but in your case the ADC causes a more erratic symptom's

Freezer and refrigerator not cooling

No not likely this time it is most likely the Adaptive Defrost Control located inside the fresh food compartment, part number 61005988 You also should check the defrost heater and defrost thermostat that comes as a kit located inside the back of the freezer compartment. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Freezer is icing over and fridge is not keeping food cold

I really believe your adaptive defrost located inside the fresh food compartment and inside the control panel is defective. It puts your refrigerator on a timely defrost and if defective this problem you listed in your post happens. Yes we may need to also check the defrost heater and defrost thermostat but with my experience with that type of Adaptive Defrost Control is famous for its failure.
ADAPTIVE DEFROST CONTROL Part Number 61005988 You can find it located on two of my websites. Some models like yours came with a Defrost Timer. We will need just look inside the control panel and see for sure. Here is a photo of the Adaptive defrost. If you should need to contact me please send an email or try to answer here. Problem is I don't get notifications when someone comments.

Please rate and ask me as much as you like. Thank You, Sea Breeze

Model # MSD2757AEW this is a side by side, the

Because you mentioned that last week you had an ice problem I need to ask was anything done to fix or check the defrost system? The number one reason for this is the Adaptive Defrost Control part number 61005988 If this is OK then we need to check the defrost heater and defrost thermostat. The ADC is located inside the fresh food compartment and behind the control panel used to adjust the temperatures in the freezer and refrigerator. I will be here if you need my help, Thanks, Sea Breeze
