Well first I noticed the back of the freezer compartment freezing up and the ice not freezing. I moved all the contents of the freezer to another freezer. I waited and noticed even when pluged in and everything defrosted the fan didn't kick on on the condensing unit! After a few minutes it did kick on and I took a guess that the defrost timer was probally ok without checking it. I took eight screws out of the back plate and noticed the defrosting tube on the lower part of the coil was broke in half. I knew I had found the problem. It took maybe 10 minutes to remove and about 10 minutes to order the part. Three days later it was at my door. I took my time installing it which only took maybe 30 minutes. It took longer for me to wipe everything down and clean the inside of both compartments than it did to insall the part. Pluged it in and fired it up and problem solved. Thanks Part Select!
