    My refrigerator will not freeze my food and it's freezing up on the coil. We tried resetting it but it will run and freeze up in the coil, even after defrosting the freezer. Also cold air is not getting to the bottom part of refrigerator and water is leaking from the top part of the freezer. It's a little warm and the setting is set to the Max for both location. Can you please tell me what need to be replaced?
    For model number FTMD18P4RW1
    Hello Mary, Thank you for the question. I suggest checking the Evaporator Fan Motor PartSelect Number PS12728811 to ensure it is running normally. If the fan is operating, you can test the Defrost Heater with a Multi Meter to check for continuity. Hope this helps!

    Fridge is in the garage. In cold weather the freezer is not maintaining 0 degree temps. Food is thawing out. What part do we need to fix this issue?
    For model number FFTR1821QB9B
    Hi Stephanie, thank you for your question. There are a few parts that could cause this issue. You should check your run capacitor and start relay on your compressor. If those parts are fine then you may want to take a look at your cold control thermostat as well. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

    Getting ice build up at air passage between freezer and lower ref. box. Defrost heater reads 55 ohms and defrost switch reads ok. No major ice at cooling coils. Door open warning beeper no longer works. Just enough ice to block air circulation.

        FREEZER WAS COLD FRIDGE WARM
        YOU TUBE VIDEO POINTED ME IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. USED MULTI METER TO CHECK FOR VOLTAGE. NONE, REPLACED DEFROST HEATER. WORKS LIKE A CHARM, PART DELIVERED TO MY DOOR FOR LESS THAN $60.00, IN TWO DAYS FROM PARTSELECT. FIXED IT MYSELF FOR LESS THAN THE COST OF A SERVICE CALL.
