Hi,
The model is pretty much what I was thinking about. The temperature is controlled by a thermistor, located near the lights in the fresh food section. It supplies the input to the board and if the returns are clear it would be a thermistor.

Hi,

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

Without a model number I will be only giving general answer to the problem. If the ice is forming on the top shelf of the fresh food section, That would be lack of air circulation and linked to the fact that the freezer is pulling in warm air and pushing it up to the fresh food section. Make sure the fresh food return vents are clear. The vents are behind the crisper. After the freezer drawer gasket is repaired and if the return air vent are clear, the frosting should go away.

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