The back sides of the refrigerators cabinet (Liebherr primium) maintain at 37 degrees F accumulate ice most of the time.
Food products that are in contact with the back sides are getting frosted and deteriorate.
The fridge distrubutes cold by air movement. A overstuffed fridge can have trouble. There is a fan that blows a controlled amount of freezer air over to the food side, altho when this goes you usually have frozen freezer and food too warm. Make sure the air is allowed to move.

Hi Jasmin Black, I suspect ice build up behind the back panel of the freezer could be causing this. this could be due to a faulty thermostat transducer that tells the freezer to defrost when the ice builds up.
The self defrost mechanism is not working. The evaporator is getting blocked with ice, an insulator, and that affects freezer as well as refrig temps. When you unplug unit the ice melts and it will work till the ice block returns.
1. Get the Food out of the Ref and Freezer. Unplug the power cord from the wall. 2. The cooling coil is in the back wall of the freezer side. Working from inside the Freezer. 3. Remove the back plastic cover to expose the cooling coil. It's called the Evaporator coil. 4. Use a hair dryer to melt all ice off the coil. 5. Put it back together. It should work for 3 - 5 days now at least. 6. Put a thermometer in there. After 24 hrs. the freezer should be 0 to 10 degrees F. and the Ref. side 37 to 44 degree F. 7. Check the door gaskets for tight fit, using a dollar bill for a gauge. Shut the door on the dollar and try to pull it out in several places.
If it ices up again in a week or two, you have a defrost heater problem. There is a electric heat strip around the cooling coil. This heat strip comes on about 10 minutes every 8 or 10 hours. This heater melts the ice off the coil. There is a clock timer device under the ref. that cycles the heat strip. You may have a bad clock, fuse device or burned out defrost heater strip. The cooling coil must be ice free to work properly.
i have seen this problem before
its the control board in the back the board is about 150 dollars
and it goes every DING DING 5 years lol
horrible design of the one that comes on the fridge every ge side by side has this problem
its very easy to replace but have to "ground" yourself before you touch the new control board meaning rub you hands on plumbing pipes, not pvc or copper
good luck if you got questoins let me know
Hi, As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...
Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...
