I have a Kenmore Elite 795.77569600 french door refrigerator. The refrigerator fluctuates between 41-46F and the freezer 17-25F. The ice maker also has severe issues including not stopping when the ice bucket is cool and sometimes the tray won't dump the ice into the bucket. The interior light also does not work. I tried to clean out the freezer and remove the back panel and the evaporator had a little frost on it but not too much. I cleaned it off and I also cleaned my condenser coils and compressor. No other frost or ice build up in the freezer. Still facing the same issues. Any ideas what else I should try? I attached a copy of my service manual.

That sounds like a sealed system problem, because the evaporator should have a thin layer of frost on ALL the coils from TOP to BOTTOM.

Look at the photos below. The very bottom photo is a NORMAL frost pattern.
