You didn't say if the compressor is running or not. If it is and all other things you stated are running then it has a sealed system problem. The sealed system comes with a 5 yr warranty in most cases (check owners manual). If the compressor is not running then listen for a click at the compressor. If you hear the click then I would replace the relay on the compressor. If you need further help I will need the complete model # off the sticker inside the fridge section.

This will work in most all cases of this type. You need a piece of copper wire, 14 guage, 12 to 16 inches. You can shortin it as you need to Turnoff the power to the fridge. Rap one end of the wire around the evaprorator heater and feed the othe end down the drain tube. This wire will heat up when the heater comes on and will supply heat down into the drain tube hopefully preventing the drain from freezing.

if you have a gas leak then you find the liquid boil off very early in the evaporator only, there should be no visible frosting until after the end of the capillary

It is possible you have a defective fan motor in the condenser area or evaporator area. Sometimes when they become defective they will run for a while and just warm up and stop while the compressor continues to run. I learned that one on four costly returns to the home. The cost was to me not the customer. Thanks, Sea Breeze

The defrost is not
working.This happens due to the evaporator coil in the inner section of freezer is got
blocked by ice .--------
Try manual defrost reset
First unplug the unit
from main power outlet. Then empty whole unit completely. Then keep both the
doors open. Wait for 24 hours. All the ice collected on the coils and in the
freezer section will get melted. Clean the water from the sections.
Then Connect the power cord of the unit to main power outlet after 24
hours/.Then set the temperature to normal in both fridge and freezer section.
It will take near to 4 hours to get run in its proper cooling cycle. Then check,
if the problem returns again. If the same problem occurs then it's defrost problem.
The defrost board and the defrost thermostat/heater is not functioning properly
and it has to be checked and replaced.
The procedure of this unit
is as follows: --- The compressor starts then it cools the freezer section.
When the freezer reaches its cooling level the defrost cycle starts functioning.
In this cycle the fan in the freezer section starts running and the cool air in
the freezer section is passed to the refrigerator section and the
refrigerator section gets cold. The air from freezer to refrigerator passes
from the section, in that section the damper is located. Now this problem which
you mentioned. In this problem the freezer thaws, this happens if the
thermostat is not functioning or the heater is not heating. Then the ice starts
getting collected on the evaporator coil. The evaporator coil
is at the internal section of freezer. If too much ice gets collected
then this ice blocks the fan in the freezer section from functioning and this
blocks the damper section with ice getting collected there. This all procedure
is controlled by the defrost board of the unit.
So first try reset procedure.If that is not helping then defrost assembly parts are to be checked and replaced.The defrost thermostat is located in the freezer section beside the evaporator coil.The defrost heater is located in the freezer section beside the evaporator coil.And the defrost control board is located in the fridge section.-------------
