Defrost heater stopped working. Refrigerator side not cooling. Freezer side working fine.

Removed inside panel in freezer compartment. Used blow dryer to melt collected ice on evaporator coil. Removed clips on bottom of defrost heater. Replaced with new defrost heater, re-attaching the clips. Replaced defrost Thermostat with new one. Re-attached inside panel. Now unit works just fine. Really easy job. Defrosting the collected ice took the longest to do.

Freezer gets ice on coils and refrigerator gets warm!!

I defrosted the ice from the freezer coils with a blow dryer and then removed the back panel from the freezer and I change the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat, I believe that being I am a woman and not really knowing what I was doing, (only what I read on PartSelect) that it took me as long as it did...Once I realize what I had to do, it was over in a jiffy....So far the Refrig and Freezer seem to be working fine..

Fridge to warm, icing up every three days

Wrong part, found the problem. Start with the thermostat, controls both when to start and stop the defrost cycle. Not the defrost heater or the timer.
