Refrigerator fresh food side warm, freezer frosted over

First did the easy part, removed and replaced the defrost timer. Didn't correct the problem.

Then got into the defrost heaters. Big job, because the factory didn't provide for repairs. Had to remove the ice maker because there was one screw holding on the cover panel behind it. The factory installed defrost heaters were run behind the freezer coils so I had to cut them out. Then I had to bend the light aluminum sides with heavy pliers to slip the burned out defrost heaters out and replace them with the new defrost heaters. Didn't use the defrost timer, because I was taking it one step at a time.

Now the refrigerator fresh food side maintains 39 degrees and runs 1/10 the time it was running. My wife says it's better than new! Saved $ 2,400 (the replacement she had picked out).

Refrigerator was freezing up and not cooling!

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!
