Defrost is your problem (heater, terminator, or defrost control)

Tips for a great answer:
This problem seems to be two sided. A refrigerator
defrost it is supposed to take the water from defrost down a pipe located
behind the freezer rear wall to a pan below the refrigerator where there is a
fan blowing warm air over the water to evaporate back into your home or
business. If that drain is blocked your refrigerator will accumulate a large
block of ice and frost behind the rear panel of freezer and temperatures will
warm considerably in fresh food compartment and freezer. Here is one site I want you to read over=> Leaking Refrigerators Just What may Be Happening and here=> Leaking Refrigerators here is a link to a service manual=> LFX25960xx Service Manual Let
me know if this service manual is close enough to your model number. At this point I am looking for air blockage behind the rear panel of freezer. If air is being blocked by ice and frost you can use a hair drier to help speed you up while melting ice. If drain is blocked use whatever you can to open the drain line mentions on the links I sent you to and let me know what is found, Thanks Sea Breeze
Freezer Back Panel
NOTE: Freezer compartment should now be empty and
walls should be clear of anything that will
obstruct removal of back panel.
1. Loosen screws that mount icemaker to freezer

As you do so, work fill cup free of fill tube. Unplug
icemaker electrical connector and remove icemaker
3. (Pull out Drawer only) Loosen and remove screws
that hold 2 basket glides in place at left and right
sides of compartment.
4. If unit has no icemaker pry with flatblade icemaker
connection cover. Remove cover.

6. Squeeze tabs on ice maker plug to release it from
Defrost Terminator (Thermostat)
1. Terminator is fastened to evaporator tubing with a
2. Snap terminator off tubing and cut wires to terminator.
3. Remove terminator from unit.
That is word for word.
