Question about Kenmore 73892 / 73894 Top Freezer Refrigerator
How do I get at the coils to melt the ice?
Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if
there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not
defrosting as it should.

The problem with the ice melting points toward a cooling problem in the freezer. This could be caused by several different problems. Dirty condenser coils below the refrigerator could be contributing to this problem. I recommend checking and cleaning these coils if necessary.
Check the door seal on your freezer. A leak through the freezer door seal may be allowing warm air to enter the freezer and melt the ice.
Make sure that your temperature control is set properly.
If these tips do not help resolve the problem, it is likely that you have a component failure or a sealed system problem. The thermostat could be bad. You could have a condenser or evaporator fan problem. You could also have a defrost system failure that is causing your cooling problem. A weak compressor would also cause this symptom.
