    Your soloutions and insite seemed to work, what I found in the freezer section was iced caked in back solid with ice, we emptied fridge & freezer, for 8 hrs, defrosted completely. Turned back on, now freezer is freezing, and fridge seems to be cold, turn up another level, wife mentioned that fridge should be a little colder ...still waiting been 14 hrs and waiting. Leak stopped on freezer botton....been leaking for months on my floor. I guess the issue is now the fridge section to get colder? Thank you for your help.... will check back will you with the final results. Again Thank you. ...Loubo

    Well, this solution worked for about 4 days, currently the fridge won't cool at all now, neither the fridge or freezer. Had to rent a fridge for a short time. Any solutions would be helpful?

Lou, the reason for the leak was probably a bad door gasket allowing condensation out. Now, the leak is so bad that the freezer coils are full of ice. Clean or replace the gasket. Test the seal by running a 2 inch wide piece of typing paper through the gasket area in a couple of places. Resistance must be felt.

Either remove the back panel in the freezer to defrost the ice or wait a full two days for defrosting to take place. While you're at it, clean the condenser coils. Want to see if you have enough refrigerant? Shut unit for at least 15 minutes. Locate the largest tube coming out of the compressor. It must be clean. Start the unit. If will frost and either dry off or become icy after at least 5 minutes. If it stays frosted, you probably need gas.

    Loubo...glad I could help.

    Loubo, this box might need gas. If it is more than 5 years old, this might be true...up until then you have a warranty. Did you do the look-see that I originally recommended with the compressor? Is the compressor running? As far as the unit chilling...it takes about 24 hours for a fridge to cool to working temperature if it is left closed.

    If the compressor is not running...you may need a defrost timer. It might be possible to see if yours is working. Go to the inside of the fridge section and see if you can find a short stub of a shaft in the back wall. Try to turn it ... probably clockwise about 1/2 way around. Does the compressor come on now? If so, use a marker to mark the shaft. Let the unit run for half an hour. Did it move? If not, the defrost timer is bad. Replacement may fix your problem.
