you can not but perhaps you can try putting a kitchen knife in there to hold it open partially . I had a friend do that and then had to have the motor that controls it replaced by a service tech

I would think that the part he is ordering would be the main control board otherwise known as the jazz board. They commonly fail but seldom lose the display and usually just stop defrosting the unit. This can be verified by listening closely, and setting the control to zero or the off position and you will still hear the compressor running. Reach up and smack the control and it will go off. part # is WPW10503278 and the only thing I can think of is that he would be ordering a sensor as well. The third part is a mystery to me so update and let us know please!

The problem you describe it probably the starting kit of the compressor. You have not mention how old is the fridge so we consider that is rather new and the compressor is not possible to fail.

If you have a multi- meter you can check the compressor to see if the windings are ok.

**First, Unplug the fridge**

Remove the panel at the back down at the bottom. This should gain you access to the compressor. On the side of the compressor will be the start relay/overload assembly such as this image...it may be enclosed in a black plastic cover as well.

Pull off the relay & overload and you'll see 3 pins in the form of a triangle...

With a meter measure between any 2 pins at one time, going between each pin with one remaining on a "common" pin.

You'll want 3 measurement's, similar to this example- 6ohms, 3ohms, and 9ohms.

On some meters you may simply get a reading of "0" ohms, as long as the needle moves off of "infinity" which would indicate an "open" winding = not good !

If following that, the readings are good, you need to replace the compressor starting kit which is the part no 10 to the compressor parts diagram.

yes.. costs is about $100.00 for a gasket (bought from an appliance store- add 4-6 hours of frustration trying to get the !@#$%^&* gasket to seat flat against the door frame.. Then call the appliance store.. probably about another 75-100$ to have them do it..

The presence of the oil tells my that you have a refrigerant leak in the coil....
The leak will need to be found, fixed, and the system recharged....

You will need to find a professional to do this but make sure that you get a complete price and a promise that it will be fixed with a warranty before giving the go ahead...

Possibly the filter both air and water. Make sure the lines aren't frozen. If the unit has an ice maker you can warm the lines with a blow dryer ( warm on low fan) make sure it's level. Is the trim gasket around the door worn?

Theres a few solutions that could fix this. 1st I would let the unit thaw out could have ice built up on the air passage that wont allow the air to travel freely. Some caused by not having a good seal around the door.

Always fault find and repair the fault before replacing a board. Without sight of the machine, I can only guess at the compressor.
