Help my milk! I have a side by side and it has a little "door" that blows cold air from the freezer to the fridge. Bottom half of fridge is cold but not top. Can't figure out what is wrong. Someone help me please!

Yes, that indicates a defrost problem. Remove the rear wall of the freezer section test the defrost thermostat and defrost heater and locate the defrost timer/defrost adapter.

I haven't been able to pull up your model. But a defrost problem has to be one of those 3 things.

we removed the back wall and it was all frosted up. we defrosted all that and cleaned coils under fridge also. how do u test those things? we have it going now and will see how it does by morning. the freezer is working as ice cube tray is freezing. i feel the cold air going through the damper to fridge now. husband wants to know how to test those things you said. thanks!

Test them with an ohm meter for continuity. You should be ok for a week or so and it will start freezing up again.

Double check your model number, I couldn't get it to pull up ad I can give you a little more information.
