Thanks for the look see on Gabby's Side by Side. I was pretty sure that is what it was in your estimation but I only know refrigeration units from being a mechanic most of my life until I had no choice but to change course thanks to Rheumatoid Arthritis. I was working in a boat yard when I joined the Navy and anything that didn't float was handled by the mechanics shop. Learned a lot there. I was wrapping my head around propane refrigeration units when I found something more sensible to do than work on RVs.

Please double check your model number because that number is not listed. I am pretty sure it has a dual evaporator one for freezer and other for the fresh food compartment. Check behind the cover of the fan inside the fresh food compartment to see if the coils are icing over. Send me the correct model number will help me decide if it is something different. I will even send you a Service manual with the correctmodel number, Thanks, Sea Breeze
soiunds like the defrost timer is bad, Unless your highly mechanically inclined I would go ahead and call out the service repair company and tell them to be sure to bring allong a timer fo your unit. Hope this helps and good luck.
A DIRTY COIL WILL KILL THE COMPRESSOR LIFE,BUT MAYBE NOT,GO TO YOUR LOCAL APPLIANCE PARTS STORE AND ASK FOR A 3 IN 1 START KIT,PULL REFRIG. OUT FROM WALL,REMOVE LOWER BACK PANEL,REMOVE CAP ON COMPRESSOR NOW LOOK ON THE STARTER YOU JUST GOT AND IT SHOW YOU HOW TO HOOKUP,IT EASY,IT'S LIKE JUMP STARTING A CAR ACCEPT YOUR JUMP STARTING YOUR FRIG.,MAKE SURE YOU UNPLUG FRIG. BEFORE YOU START,THANKS-MIKE
First clean the condensor coil. it will either be under the fridge behind the toe grill or in the back of the machine behind the rear cover depending on the make and model of your fridge. You will also want to make sure the condensor fan is running. It will be located behind the cover at the back of the unit near the compressor. Post back with the complete model and serial numbers from the fridge if you need any more help.
