Hello, Your problem is going to be with your cold control/Thermostat this can be located in the control console inside the refridgerator. This part needs to be replaced, the part number is WR9X10042 Good Luck!! if you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Mike
if there is frost present on the rear vertical wall of the freezer compartment then the defrost function is broken and needs to be repaired the freezer is like an ice block and yo get cooling up to the refridgerator compartment air has to be able to flow and that can't happen if the frost is not eliminated
try itStep 1: Check the bulb to see if it is burned out. If not, depress the push button on the door switch.Step 2: If the light stays on, clean the switch with a cloth. Then remove the switch from the jamb. Remove retaining screws hidden by a plastic trim piece, pry the switch out of the jamb with a screwdriver, or pry off the jamb trim to expose the switch. Then test the switch with a VOM set to the RX1 scale (instructions for using the VOM are given on page 19).
Step 3: Clip one probe of the VOM to each terminal of the switch and press the push button. The meter should read zero. If the needle on the scale moves above zero, replace the switch with a new one of the same type.
Step 4: Connect the new switch the same way the old one was connected.
remove back panel inside freezer and you will find drain at bottom blocked with ice. melt off with a hairdryer and follow up with hot water till drain flows freely.
you may have a fault with the defrost system or the drain heater
