In most older reefers, the fan in the back of the freezer does the entire job. It blows cold air through a duct that leads to the ******. If you have no cold air in the ******, but your freezer is still cold...but barely, your fan is shot.

Sounds like the defrost circuit of your fridge has failed. If you remove the back panel of the freezer compartment, you will see the evap coil encased with ice. Normally the defrost circuit will turn off the compressor and turn on a heater to warm the coil to about 45 degrees to melt any frost build up. After about 40 minutes the compressor will kick back in to keep your fridge cool again.

The typical failures are that the defrost heater burns out. If you have an older fridge, the defrost timer fails to advance, causing the fridge to stay in cooling or defrost mode.

Check to see if the unit it level, sounds like it is not. The unit may be like a Samsung model that has this issue. The tray that catches the ice is supposed to be slanted towards the back of the unit.

Pull it out and clean the back. When you re position it, put it in a slightly different spot. If it has a kick strip and filter at the bottom, clean that too. The humming is caused by harmonics and just needs a small change to get rid of it.

This can be a complex problem. Test whether the defrost heater circuit is getting 120 v from the main control board. If it is getting the voltage, the main control board is okay. You could have a broken heating element or a blown fuse in the defrost control assembly. Here's a video for a different error code that shows how to access the freezer evaporator in that type of refrigerator: youtube.com/watch?v=a4MdwuoN3jc Unplug the refrigerator and use the procedure in that video to remove the evaporator cover in the freezer. Check the resistance through the defrost heater and replace it if it's electrical open (measures infinite resistance). If the defrost heater is okay, you may need to replace the defrost control assembly which contains the defrost thermistor and fuse. You might want to call a service person on this.
