Assuming that the circulation fan is running and none of the ducts are blocked the problem is likely to be caused by frost accumulating on the evap core over time and it will eventually cause it to ice up. normally the frost is melted away during the defrost cycle (this it what makes a freezer (frost free") Ge redesigned the defrost heater with a 2 element heater to rectify the problem. The new part cost is about $35.00 and should completely dry out the evap core during the defrost cycle and solve your problem.

That model number refers to a dehumifier made by Freidrich. this is the refridgerator section. For a dehumidifier to work right the temp in the room needs to be 65 degrees or better. The machine is designed for use in temps over 65. A freezer or Fridge will do the same thing if used in a cold area. It works by cooling the coils to close to freezing in normal temps, but when it is colder than 60, the evaporator may cool below freezing temp of water and the condensate will then freeze on the coils.
I think you are right. The core may be restricted or leaking refridgerant. The moisture could be condensation on the evaporator that is building up inside because of a plugged or broken drain hose. (the water you see on the ground under a car when the A/C is running might be dripping inside the cabin)
if turbo fans not running then the evaporators probably froze up and wont cool at all unplug and replace turbo fan and make sure u let the unit thaw completely i recommend atleast24 hours and turn back on and make sure turbo fan is running and u should be fine
You say fan seems to be working? it either is or it is not working. If you are getting a reduced airflow in the cabinet, it may indicate that the evaporator coil is iced up and needs to be manually defrosted.
is it side by side or freezer on top/bottom...check to see if the fan inside the freezer is running when the compressor is running..also check to see if ice is covering the evaporator coils.. the freezing should be even with a thin layer of ice/ not partically melted..sometimes the ice forms in the vents and stops the air flow...to review...check and see if fan is working in freezer check to see if vents are clogged......good luck!!
All cooling starts in the freezer section where the evaporator is. Too much stuff in the freezer can inhibit the necessary airflow around the evaporator and cause it to freeze. Usually, the next defrost cycle will thaw it, but it can keep the cool from coming out. There are so many things that can cause the lack of cooling, but most often, it is NOT the compressor. e.g. - if there's water pooling on the inside at the bottom, you have a bad door seal. If no real cool ever happens and you don't hear the hum of the compressor often, you defrost timer is bad.
