Fridge will freeze everything every few days. Turning it off for several hours will reset and fix it but only for a few days. Been doing it for months regardless of how much food is in the fridge.


Either you have a bad cold control or a failed damper witch will cause this issue. Most likely a bad damper though, locate the air vent top middle of the refer section and check to see if its wide open. If this does not close it will cause freezing. Good Luck

Where can I get my hard drive mended it just ticking and will not work

I've had a pretty good success rate with freezing drives to recover data from a dying/dead drive. Much simpler and cheaper then most other methods of data recovery.
Freezing the drive shrinks everything inside, sometimes freeing up stuck/seized/trapped components, or keeping an overheating component from shutting the drive down right away.
Stick the drive in a ziplock bag(to seal out moisture) in the freezer.
While it's freezing, set everything up to quickly transfer your files off the drive if it does work. After a couple hours in the freezer, plug the drive in and see what it does. It may only work for a few minutes, for hours, or weeks. Pull your data off as fast as you can, if it stops again, re-freeze it and start where you left off. I've frozen drives 3-4 times to get everything off.

The guide that funnels the water into the ice maker needs to be replaced. The cause of your problem is that water is leaking into the back, freezing there, and blocking the air flow. Mine sounded like an idling semi truck with engine problems.
