Removed freezer bottom and back plates-encountered ice -melted with heat gun.Observed fan not running with fridge plugged in and considerable erosion of the styrofoam part.ordered fan motor and blade and styrofoam ducting and replaced same.Fan started running immediately when plugged in and now the compressor cycles normally and the refrigerator compartment is much cooler and icing has stopped. I'm good to go until the compressor fails! thanks for the excellent delivery service(2 days)and your parts diagrams really helped me trouble shoot the problem.
