Question about Freezers
Control board has gone bad....
What happens is the defrost is controlled electronically from a circuit board, when this goes bad, the freezer quits defrosting, and freezes the fans that circulate air through the fridge side of things.
To check this, unplug the entire fridge, leave the freezer open, wait for it to defrost a bit, if this causes the fridge to start cooling again when you plug it back in, then its the defrost. You should also see ice crystals on the back of the freezer just under the icemaker.

Hi Simon I saw that problem because you have a hole in the bottom of the freezer connecting directly on the wall of the fridge you need to block it ... because the air flow directly from the freezer 2 the fridge . Hope it was helpful.

The ice builds up in the freezer compartment because the defrost cycle is not working. Check the timer , the defrost elements the defrost thermodise.

Hi, you have a common problem with your control boards; there is a cheap fix if you can use a soldering iron or you can have your modules repaired.
