THIS FRIDGE FREEZER IS ALL MESSED UP.THE FREEZER SIDE IS ONLY COLD ENOUGH TO USE AS A FRIDGE AND THE FRIDGE SECTION IS NOT COLD AT ALL.THE MODEL IS GSG25 MIPAFBB.ANOTHER THING,WE NEVER GOT THE ICE AND WATER DISPENSER PLUMBED UP AND IF WE PLUG IN THE FRIDGE IT BEEPS....ANY HELP WOULD BE GR8 AS IT HAS BEEN STANDING IDLE.
The unit is not defrosting because it needs one of three parts that make the evaporator defrost every about 8 to 10 hours depending on the refrigerator, 1. defrost thermostat which snaps on the evaporator coil behind the rear panel in the freezer, 2. defrost heater which is also behind the rear panel in the freezer, the heater melts the frost on evaporator, 3. defrost timer or defrost control which is either on the back of the fridge behind a small panel that must be removed to access to the control or it's in the fresh food section.

Test and make sure your freezer section is getting to 0° and -5° often times with this problem I find the freezer section just not getting cold enough due to a condenser needing cleaning or condenser fan not working at the right speed Other items to test make sure refrigerator has 4" inch of clearance behind and possibly side but behind is absolutely a must
it could be the damper part number WR49X10091,if the damper door isn't closing correctly cold air will just keep coming into the fridge side from the freezer,usually the damper door opens to let the cold air in when the fridge starts warming up and when it gets cold enough the door will close but your damper is stuck open
If, the fresh food section is 34- 38 degrees, then the freezer should be cold enough to keep ice cream solid. All of the cooling capability comes from the freezer section. I, personally, would not waste time or money on a ten year old box. Ten years ago it cost $1000, so, the outlay is $100 per year. Dump the old refrigerator and get a new one.
Cleaned the condenser coils which were dusty but not severely so. Checked the evaporator coils which were NOT iced. Reset the fridge to coldest setting and freezer to #5 (mid range of temperature) and waited a full 36 hours. Fridge temp is 40 F and freezer is about 0F. Not sure what is different except coldest setting on fridge. Warm weather is here but not warm enough to require AC. Temps in late afternoon in house about 77-80F. Any thoughts are appreciated because I suspect this problem is not completely resolved.
