Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

My Kenmore side by side is not cooling the refrigerator. The freezer works fine. About 3 months ago I had the same problem which I solved by letting it sit for 24 hours. Everything melted and the fan then could blow cool air to the refrigeration side. I am noticing again that there is a build up of ice on the inside back coils. is there a defrost unit that could be out which is why I had the first problem but now the same thing again. What is the expected repair?

Have a Kenmore refrigerator about 9 years old. This has freezer on left side, refrigerator on right. This also has an ice/water dispenser. It is making ice, and everything in the freezer appears to be frozen. The refrigerator is a little on the warm side (about 45 degrees according to the thermometer). I have cleaned the coils underneath the refrigerator, cleaned the fan near the compressor, and checked the unit that lets the freezer air into the refigerator side. The unit's "venetian blind" mec

We have a Whirlpool Gold side-by-side refrigerator. The freezer must have started defrosting today. Everything inside is soaked, the ice maker quit producing ice and the ice was melting. The blower fan is running continuously but not blowing any cold air. We did have the freezer packed pretty full but not much more than usual. It seems like the refrigerator is now starting to warm up. We have turned off the freezer side to see if it makes any difference. What else should we do?

My Jenn Air side by side I think has two problems. I have problems with the defrosting unit in the freezer area not working. I have temporarily been manually defrosting it.

My ge side-by-side refrigerator/freezer isn't cooling. It started on the refrigerator side and now both sides are losing cooling capability. There is ice build up on the lower back wall of the freezer. Sounds like something with the defrost from what I've read. One guy told me I needed an Ohm meter to check the defrost thermostat and the defrost heater for continuity and whichever one reads "open" needs replaced. Does this sound right?
