the problem is that the compressor is not working
call a technician for a proper diagnosis

Did you flush the system after changing the filter? Air can cause water to leak if it not flushed after each filter change. It takes about 6 to 7 minutes to get all the air flushed out. I hope that helps...

Hello Sherry;
My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
1.) If the refrigerator shut down for 20-30 minutes:
Your refrigerator goes into a defrost cycle every 8-10 hours. The refrigerator shuts down for 20-30 minutes. At this time, you have a heater under your freezer cooling coils (Evaporator). The heater turns on and melts the frost off your cooling coils. Then the refrigerator turns back on. This is where you get the term; "Frost Free".
2.) If your refrigerator has shut down and is still shut down:
a.) If it shut down going into defrost - Some refrigerators have mechanical/electrical defrost timers that are easy to access and manually bring it out of defrost. Unfortunately, your refrigerator defrost cycle is built into your main control board.
b.) You main control board is bad. This is a primary electrical part. It is not a uncommon failure. The control board is about $85.00 and easily replaced.
I have faith in you Sherry, lets replace it:
1.) The new control board will come in a silver bag. This is a anti-static bag. Static electricity will not the board out. Ground your self by rubbing your hands on a steel object.
Move the refrigerator out to where you can freely stand behind it. Unplug the refrigerator. There is a metal cover plate about 10" x 12" on the back. Remove the screws and lift up. There are tabs on the bottom of this cover. Now, the control board in front of you is held in place by small white retaining pins. On each side of the pin is a small leg. With one hand squeeze these legs and the other hand pull the control board toward you to free the board from the leg. There are several pins around the board. Now that the board is free, take the new board, systematically going around the board one connector at a time. Remove one connector from the old board and connect it to the new board. Repeat this one connector at a time. Each connector at the top has a clip that you must squeeze to disconnect. Make sure on the new board you hear the connector click. Do not pull on the wires. The connectors are fool proof. The connectors are designed to only fit one connection size. Remount the board on the pins. put back cover on and plug in.

In the freezer side there is a panel in the back. behind the panel are the evaporators. over the evaporators are heaters you will find one of then broken from water dropping on it the bottom one was broken on mine. put a fan to the freezer and thaw it out. get the model and serial numbers and look on ebay.com. or there is a place called http://www.repairclinic.com/
These are not hard to change but above all UNPLUG THE FRIG OR THEY MAY PUT YOU IN ONE.

Hope this helps.
