3 things If you have ice on the freezer side. 1. defrost timer not working 2. blower fan failed, if it has one 3. defrost limit switch failed.. i dont think it is #2 but 1 or 3 last but not least your defrost heat coil has failed
Many times a freezer and/or refrigeratordo not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many otherthings that can go wrong.

Thanks for the question When this happens if the evaporator is all frosted up you have a derost problem could be your timer or your defrost thermostat which is located on the coils of the evaporator you can check this with a volt meter these meters are cheap you dont need a very expensive for ahout 20 dollars or the defrost timer one of the two is your problem thanks for the question The appliancedoc
Defrost the fridge freezer overnight. Restart unit. If it starts working you have either had a door ajar or a defrost problem. If it fails to cool down at all then you may still have a defrost problem or a evap fan motor faulty. Most likely outcome is that the unit will work once defrosted for approx three weeks after which the freezer will freeze back up. Most likely cause will be the defrost heaters. Any good tech should be able to help on second failure. Hope this helps.
