I'll bet the freezer is not as cold as it was. Fully defrost the unit by leaving it unplugged for about 2 days. Check all gaskets. Clean the condenser coils under the unit. Restart. You have too much condensate in the box...either uncovered food or windowshopping or somebody didn't shut the door properly.

Someone is trying to sell me a kenmore elite french door fridge. only a couple years old. says everything works fine inluding compressor- except that it needs freon . is this going to be a major and...

Stay away. If it does need freon it means it has a leak somewhere in the sealed system. That can be a very expensive fix. Who diagnosed the problem? May be other issues. If your looking for used go to an appliance dealer to get at least a 30 day warranty. I would not reccomend buying anything that has not been repaired first.

If the fan beind the rear cover inside the freezer isn't running it can cause circulation problems one of which is freezing in the drawers. The fan may not run when the door is open so hold the door switch down. It should be running when the compressor is running.

1 year old Kenmore Elite Trio Refridgerator not cooling

There are a lot of things that could be the source of the problem... is there no cooling at all going on in the freezer? Is the back wall of the freezer cold? It could be anything from a fan, to the compressor, to the control board... you need a technician.

I would get on the phone with Sears, and explain the continuing problems you have been having, and they may agree to cover service.

Control pad flashing temp and all lights continuously and ice door continually cycles open and closed

With the problems it is presenting, I would say it's very likely.
However it may take a bit of detective work to find which board is defective.

Check a part suppliers link Here for price comparison so you have some ideas.
