Hi, My Kenmore coldspots light that control the temp on fridge and freezer went out on control panel.. about the same time the fridge wasn't staying cold then the freezer got ice on bottom back. could it be anything besides the control panel going bad?

It's most likely all related to the control board. When the control board goes out all kinds of strange things start showing up or stop working. Seen it many times before and a common problem on that model.

Here's the one you need:

Thank you very much. We already bought a new fridge but was wanting to repair the old one for the garage. was hoping for a small repair like thermostat or something similar. I will have to think a little longer on whether or not I want to replace the control board.

You should unplug the machine if you're considering the repair so the compressor doesn't get damaged.
