Paul for model number GX5FHDXVB03
Answer:

Hi Paul, Thank you for your question. I think that you should first check your water inlet valve, see if it is sending too much water up to the ice maker. Thus over filling it and causing leaking that freezes and creates your ice build up. If that part is alright, I would suggest checking then your ice maker to see if it is working correctly. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Not sure what part i may need. The freezer part of my fridge runs and cools properly but the fridge portion does not cool at all.

Robert Maynor for model number GX5SHDXVB03
Answer:

Hi Robert, Thank you for your inquiry. There are some parts that you will need to check to see which one is causing the issue. You will need to check the electronic control board, the capacitor, the evaporator fan motor, the bimetal defrost thermostat, the damper control assembly and the condenser fan motor. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Refrigerator section wasn't getting cold.

To keep from having to pay the appliance repairman $100.00 for a diagnostic fee I just started replacing parts that were known for causing this problem. First I replaced the compressor switch and capacitor that didn't work so then I replaced the damper controller then I replaced the control board then I saw that the evaporator fan wasn't spinning so I replaced the evaporator fan motor and the bimetal defrost thermostat. That was the problem I wish I would have checked that first. But it works like new now.
