1) freezer is frozen block of ice solution unplug and thaw
2)fan motor is burnt out replace one screw inside top right side of freezer remove snap out cover sop out styrofoam and self epxlanitory from there
3) defrost timer is worn out aand might need replacement if first two items don't solve problem
