Shane,

Check the back wall of the freezer compartment,

For "snow" or ice,

Your description would indicate a probable defrost problem,

The first indication would be frost or ice building up on the evaporator, and restricting the air flow in the unit, and causing ice to form on the back wall.

Good Luck,

Would this be on the inside of the freezer? If so, there is no frost buildup...

Shane,

Yes,

It would be the back wall inside the freezer.

And you also stated both the fridge and freezer have an intermittent cooling situation, correct ?

Based on that, I would have to suspect the ADC timer board

Part number: AP4909015

Part number: AP4909015


or the temperature control

Part number: AP2151626

Part number: AP2151626


Of course there are other possibilities( sealed system failure, defrost thermostat, etc.)

But that's were I would start if it were me.

Good Luck,

So, I have the back panel off where the condenser unit is...I open the doors to the fridge and when cooling is called for a humming sound comes from the condenser for about 3 seconds and then stops...could this be the issue? Shouldn't it run until the temp is reached?

The fan to the coils is running constantly...

The two parts you speak of, is there any way to check if they are bad before purchasing them?

Shane,

Now that's a better description, and more informative.

It now sounds like a bad compressor relay/overload assembly.

Part number: AP4367355

Part number: AP4367355


Part number: AP4315853

Part number: AP4315853


If you remove the assembly from the side of the compressor, and shake it, if you hear or feel a rattle, you've got a burnt PTC assembly inside and you'll need to replace the part(s).

Thanks for the update and added information,

Good Luck,

I have removed this and do not hear any rattle...Is there another way to see if it is functioning properly?

I unplugged it for about 10 minuets and when I plugged it in the compressor ran for a good minute or so and then stopped...When it tried to go again, I could hear a slight wine, then a click and then nothing?

Shane,

We're back at a bad relay / overload assembly, or a sealed system failure.

You're not going to be equipped to do a sealed system repair(special tools, refrigerant , etc.)

Do you have access to a multi meter, so yo can test circuits and voltages at the relay or compressor ?

Let us know, and we can get you the information, and get you up and running.

Good Luck,
