I dont think you are able to see my solution i posted for your refrigerator problem, but here it is

  • yes, your discoveries in the machine like ice blocking the vents contributed to the problem.
  • I would also clean the coils under the machine as they will cause a problem with the temps.
  • the door seal can be temporarily glued with 100% silicone in order to test to see if it was the main problem. the door seal would cause condensation around the bottom drawers and possibly freezing the airflow vents.

there is a trick to changing the door seal. when you buy it is folded up and wrinkled.
  • if it is a sunny day you can unfold the door seal and lay it out on the hood of a car and the heat from the sun will soften up the material and the wrinkles will go away. if it is cold outside or raining then use a hair dryer to heat the door seal as you have it laid out in its rectangular shape.
  • once you have the door seal relaxed and ready to put on then take the door off the refrigerator (never try to put the door seal on while the door is still hanging).
  • lay the door on a large flat surface like a table or floor
  • the door seal should either be held in by a groove or secured by 1/4" hex screws
  • loosen all the screws (don't take them out)
  • take off the old gasket
  • fit the new gasket around the door just the way you want it.
  • then while the door is still laying flat tighten the screws starting with the center screws on each side of the door.
  • then put the door back on and your done.
if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.

Comment by mikedurland, posted on Aug 11, 2008 when you glue the door seal, put a piece of wax paper over the freshly glued door seal and close the door. this will mold the door seal as it dries to fit the refrigerator.
Comment by mikedurland, posted on Aug 12, 2008 the door seal is not a "peel and stick" from some hardware store like 'Pyrhyc' said, these are LIES, as you will see. dont waste your time going to a hardware store. door seals have to the right size for your refrigerator. you can buy them from an appliance parts store or sears or online. shop around because they can be expensive.

Refrigeraotr is out but freezer still works

doesnt make adiff how you loaded freezer, shouldnt affect fan operation anyway. if you have a meter you can check for proper voltage(110v) to fan wires and if you have power youll need to replace fan, easy enough to do just a few screws and about $50.. part number 5304445861.

If the flap your mentioning is the one that opens and closes that is on the freezer door,than it needs to be replaced with the "Fountain Kit ".In this kit you will have the parts that control this problem.Replace ALL the parts that are in this kit with the parts off your old one.If installed correctly ,the problem is fixed.

Well some people

most people do not know that the freezer does all the cooling for the unit he said his freezer was fine and the ice was good next time start off by telling them that say first off there is nothing in the fridge that does any cooling so we need to start with the freezer and go from there its just like they think that sxs have pumps they don't know that they work off house pressure on water valves that's why we get the big bucks just click on abuse on the post and the mods will remove it im sure you've dealt with enough customers to know some times they get funky dont take it personaly or you will have a stroke lol

No cold fridge

Open the freezer and listen for the evaporator fan. You may have to hold the door switch closed for it to come on. If you dont hear the fan running then you probably need a fan motor or or defrost bimetal depending on the make and model. If the fan is working, look at the back wall of the freezer. If you see a thick coat of frost, you probably have a problem with the defrost system. Also, check to make sure refrigerator light is shutting off when you close the door. A 40 watt bulb will curdle a gallon of milk quickly. Of course, you also want to rule out any possibility that the fridge door was left slightly open over night before you decide to toss it. Please reply back with what you find out. If you need further help, please post the brand and model number so I can give more detailed advise.

Take off the back panel and cut the insullation as in the photo and this will never happen again. What happens is the water gets trapped and then ice forms and builds up and causes the blockage.
