fridge stopped working, no clue what to do next
« on: July 30, 2012, 03:51:59 PM »

My fridge stopped working; I replaced the timer, then the thermostat, now it works, but I have a frost built-up on the lower back panel in the freezer. I have no clue what to do next.

The next step is check the defrost heater and bimetal termination thermostat.
