Question about Refrigerators
Power off the freezer.
Remove all freezer drawers.
Remove the four screws retaining the ducting at the back of the freezer compartment. Top at the top, two at the bottom
Carefully pull the ducting out - it's located in the guide slots for the freezer drawers, and should pull out without too much drama.
This exposes the air circulating fan, and the evaporator coil (the bit that gets chilled).
In my case, despite a defrost of the frost-free section, the evaporator section was one massive chunk of ice. If you have similar, carefully defrost this, and check the drain hole at the bottom of the cavity.
Re-assemble, as reverse of above.
Mine's been trouble-free since doing this.
