    Default Ice inside fridge wall / running warm (Conquest side-by-side)

    Just got the fan replaced few weeks ago since the wall betw the freezer and fridge was running incredibly hot. That works fine now.

    Now - the fridge is def tunning not very cold and there are chunks of ice at the top and bottom wall that is common with the freezer. the bottom ice coems off in chunks when I open the bottom drawer - maybe kinda near some vent there? dont recall.

    Something I can replace myself??

    thanks!

    Default model number

    THanks for your reply.

    Whirlpool Conquest Model# GD25DIXHW00 (maybe the first 2 letters are actually 6D?). Mfg date 05/2000

    Cpl of other observations - the inside walls are VERY damp - u can scribble your name in the moisture! Fan is running fine, compressor seems to be cliking on and off, coils not too dusty, no ice on any copper pipes in the back. Its not cold in there - but not too warm - e.g the butter is not melting, but the fluids are definitely not as cold as they should be. freezer temo set to min, fridge temp set to max.

    How can I confirm that its the gasket seal on the door? Also - I dont know how to check for the defrost timer, etc. If it is the seal - is that something that's self-replacable?

    Any help is appreciated!

    Did you look behind your back freezer cover inside the freezer to check the evaporator coils, to see if there is a thin layer of frost on them all?

    I'll check that when I get home. If there is frost... what would that mean?

    Default yes!

    just checked... there is some frost on the coils behind the plate on the (inside) back wall of the freezer. Interestingly - there's prickly frost in/around the icemaker AND on the ice in the ice bucket too!

    so.... what does that mean? dying to know how I can fix it! Thank you!

    It sure sounds like an air leak, but without looking at it myself, its hard to say.

    You may need to call an appliance repair company out to look at it.
