So first the ice maker stopped working, then the freezer started having a lot of frost and now the fridge has stopped cooling completely. After reading through this forum I believe it is the wires. I attached a picture. 3 are broken.

I'm doing the repairs with my dad. We want to solve the problem now and for the future. So we want to add extra cable to give it more slack. Is this possible? Also what would suggest I use to reconnect the cables? Videos would be great.

Yes, this is a very common problem, yes add more wire, Solder, heat shrink, and some black electrical tape should fix it.
