Hello, my fridge has stopped a couple of times the first time just seemed to leave water on floor, from ice cube maker we thought. Next time it stopped i went to ice maker found one of the pins in side wasn't connecting proper fixed that now ice maker works fine. noticed that when i grabbed ice maker unit i burnt my finger on what looks like a heating element.

It stopped working again, lots of water on floor, would not start up no matter what i tried. pulled back panel off cleaned a bunch, followed wires to behind panel in freezer still nothing funny. pulled panel off where cold knob is. when i tried to turn the little thing on frost timer it clicked like a wind up clock, as soon as i moved it the fridge started. Do i need a frost timer or was it just coincidence ?
