check drain pan..... also make sure water not comingfrom inside fridge

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp .. I don't know what he was doing with the putty unless he was stopping up the vent which won't work because you have to have the air circulation for the fridge section to work. The fridge temp control may be the problem.

If this unit has the temp controls in the middle top of the fridge then it is in there.

First thing to check is if the water filter is out of date, this will cause you not to get any water to the ice maker or the dispenser. Another thing to do is to get behind the machine and with someone pushing the dispenser see if the water valve vibrates. If it does and there is no water and the filter is good either the valve is bad or the resevoir inside the refrigerator is frozen and not letting water come through, but the last is unlikely due to the ice maker water supply does not go through the resevoir. The filter is the first place I would start with.

isolate it from the heater and defrost timer power circuits, then it must be below 15 degrees F. to test correctly,if warm it will test bad(open)as its a thermal bi-metallic switch operated by cold temperatures

on your model the thermostat comes with a new heater
you have to read the t-stat when it's cold,unplug the harness,stick one end into the harness and stick the tip of the other probe into the other wire of the t-stat,or seeing that you have to replace the heater and t-stat anyway cut the two wires going to the t-stat,wire nut them together,manually turn the timer knob to put it into defrost and if the heater comes on you know the t-stat is bad.you can leave the heater on and get a hair dryer,melt out all the ice and then disconnect the t-stat wires and tape them or wirenut them,this way your machine will run for 10 to 12 days before it freezes up again giving you time to order your parts and you won't loose any food.when you get new parts melt out any ice again and change heater and t-stat.most likely the t-stat is bad,common problem.
