Question about Refrigerators
The panel on the door where it tells the temperature (above the ice/water dispenser) will not come on and the dispenser itself will not work. The freezer will not freeze or anything.
Before you spend a lot defrost/ unplug. lets the ice in the crossovers melt. plug it back in and see what you get.

Testimonial: "It's been unplugged for days and it doesn't still doesn't work. But the lights on the door and the ice/water dispenser wouldn't quit because it is frozen up and needs defrosting, would it? That would be an electrical problem I think. A friend told me its the fan motor, but I don't understand how that has anything to do with the lights and stuff either."

please look at the back bottom part of the refigerator , if you could see a small condenser fan there. it might not be running or running very slow. correct that problem then.
that is why your panel is very hot because a condenser line passes thru that panel and if the fan is not running, then the temperature gets very hot.
the efficiency of the fridge is also affected.
i hope i was able to solve your problem.
pls rate me.

take out everything and at the lower inside back of the freezer you have a drain ..... pour hot water till it opens / the water comes from you evap when it goes into defrost and it cant get out the drain / Larry

This is a bad design flaw, the fridhe is cooled by fan forced air from the freazer. Two ducts vent into and out of the fridge fron the freezer and ice can block them up (which you can find if you take off all the plastic at the top and back of the fridge).
Hence, when they block up, the frindge does not cool, hence the thermostat tells the fridge to keep running which makes the freezer colder and colder, making the blockage worse.
You need to not only fully defrost the freezer (which can be done quicker by removing the plastic panel in the back of the freezer and using a hairdryer) BUT also fully dry the fridge before turning it back on.
To stop it happening again, avoid puting unvovered liquids or hot items in the fridge. Also avoid leaving the fridge and freezer doors open for long especially in humid conditions. As I said, it's a bad design.
