Icemaker stopped working,warm fridge,

first i entered the symptoms into your site and the culprit was gonna be the defrost timer or defrost heater-thermostat. I ordered the parts and they arrived the next day even though I didn't pay for next day. Defrosting the freezer was what took the time.After it was thawed it only took about 15 minutes to install the heater and timer. Am happy to say I have all the ice I need and your diagnosis was right on.

Warming of the freezer section above 15 degrees

This actually was a part of a thermostat problem. I bought a thermostat one week earlier and that fixed the problem. I bought the thermostat thinking that was part of the warming of the fresh food and freezer section. I installed the defrost timer anyway with the thermostat and it is working well. I didn't know that the freezer got above 15 degrees on the defrost cycle every 16 hours.
One 1/4 hex screw at the top of the housing removes the entire assembly. Be careful not to damage the foam on the left side removing the housing. There is a tab on the bottom right on the back panel that lifts up to remove. Unplug that whole assembly from the fridge wiring harness and the rest is obvious.

The freezer was not freezing

repaired and replaced the thermostat timmer, defrost thermostat and the defrost heater. The frig is 10 years old and the real culprit to this problem was the defrost heater.
