Thank you for submitting your question. The information Barbara has provided is good information. Ice forming on the back of the freezer wall will be due to a defrost issue. First make sure the the freezer door has a proper seal so that it's not causing any air leaks. Then I recommend running the unit through a diagnostic mode to determine what's failed. By putting the control board in a test mode it should indicate an error code pointing to the root cause of the problem. The images below will assist you through this process. The problem is usually caused by the defrost fuse/sensor. I hope this information helps. Please reply back to this thread if you require further assistance with this repair. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Hi,

Thank you for your question. It is concerning when the refrigerator is not functioning correctly.

The power to the bulbs comes from the main control board. The power is routed through the door switches, when the door is opened the power circuit is complete and the bulbs light up. There are feedback wires on the switch which tell the control board if door is open or closed.

NOTE: You should only check that live voltage if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely measure it. Wear proper safety equipment (electrical safety gloves and safety goggles) when checking that live voltage.

If you want to do the circuit checking I will gladly assist you, but if you would rather a professional check the circuits here is a link to follow, Sears Home Services .

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance please include more details in a reply to this entry below.

You could have an evaporator fan that is hitting on excessive frost build-up. You can try to resolve this problem by safely storing your food and then defrosting the unit by unplugging it for 24 hour and leaving the refrigerator and freezer doors open. This may melt the frost so that the fan blades will no longer hit the frost. If the frost does not return, then this simple fix will work.

If the frost returns, then you will probably need to diagnose and repair an automatic defrost system problem.

If that noise does not go away after defrosting the unit, then you could have a bad fan as described in that link for a previous answer that Joseph P. posted in the above response. You can access that evaporator fan using the information in that previous answer. Be sure that you unplug the refrigerator before accessing internal components. If you need parts, you can order them from the Sears PartsDirect website.

This repair can be more difficult than it looks. If you get to a point where you need to have a service technician repair the refrigerator, you can schedule one through this link: Sears Home Services .

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.
