Easy fix Ive fixed this problem many times it is the fan on the compressor you can order the fan directly from marcone appliance online or call them and those seviceman should come and do that job for free thats like compressor repair step 1 shame they missed that hope they didnt charge you remove the back cover where the compressor is theres a fan in the rear by the compressor should be bound up and unplug your machine till you get the new fan wat pointed me to the fan is when you said about the sides getting burning hot this is always the first sign that fan is gone on compressor

Freezer isnt freezing yet ice is forming on the back wall


How to check everything
http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezerare icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation ofcold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. Inmost newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board.If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicksand everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replacethe timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn thetimer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

My fridge in my fridge freezer keeps freezing everything in it.


If the fridge side is frozen you have a door seal issue.
If the freezer side is frozen you have a defrost component issue.
Your post was not clear as to which side is frozen.

Inside the fresh food compartment near lights is the defrost timer. Turn it clockwise slowly until you hear refrigerator compressor start. If this works, replace the defrost timer. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Side by side refrigerator freezing up


inside the fridge there is a cold radiator which has filled with condensation or water from freezing it when say cleaned out the fridge this can be remedied by letting set for a few days outside in the sun so that water can evaporate properly or you can call a repair man and he can pull out frost radiator inside and defrost all the water out by dry wet vac and heater dryer

ice builds apon ice even a little bit can build up to a mountain same thing happended to my top end whirlpool i pulled the metal grate and defrosted this by pouring tap water over the ice which it went down the defrost tube outside water drain this helped greatly havent had trouble with ice since
