Possibly the defrost heater could be faulty or the defrost thermostat or defrost thermistor (sometimes called D-Sensors I believe). If you turn off the fridge and let it defrost itself for 12 hours and then start it again, it may work fine for a week or two (or may even be totally fine in case you left the fridge or freezer door open by accident).

Unfortunately, this model has had quite a few problems, because it is such a complicated refrigerator. Many times a shorted component that is connected to the Iceland main control board will affect completely unrelated items making it easy to chase your tail for hours. I would suspect the freezer thermostor - only because we have had to replace it many times in the past.
Suggest you go to the www.searspartsdirect.com and copy the electrical diagram and then verify electrical reading on the main PCB, to try to isolate the problem.

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it can
be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if FREEZER CONTROL is turned WARMER WHICH MAKES THE REF COLDER AND VICE-VERSA. SEE?
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
But is probably a common defrost problem The ice build up
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
Make sure back cover is on the fridge. Some take them off and throw them away.
make one out of cardboard if its gone, using the holes of the old one.

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

I would have tried to get you going as fast as possible, but when you have a business things are different. If you have any commercial equipment it is always good to have a source for answers. Model Numbers and Brand Names listed someplace where you know just what you have and know who to call without having to get into an expensive repair trap. I'm not saying that those that came out overcharged you but it does happen a good bit of the time. If I can help feel free to ask here or through my websites, Thanks, John Tripp/AKA Sea Breeze

How about a compressor model number. This will identify the Refrigerant used.

First thing to do is check for ice build up on the coils and make sure there is air flow in the unit. If there is any ice build up, then try defrosting and cleaning the coils, make sure any dust build up is also cleaned off. If that doesn't help, a new thermostat may be needed. Let me know if you need anything else.

Hi,
It has lost some freon and is not charged correctly...the unit is pumping down and shutting off on low pressure and then after being off a bit the pressure comes up and it restarts...
Need to check the charge and top it off and you will be good to go..

you will need to replace the main control board located on the rear panel behind an access panel,this board controls all temps and digital readouts,when the readout goes dark this board is the culprit

you need to remove the rear access panel inside the freezer and find the defrost heater and check this and see if the element is open,it is under and the side s of the evaporator,and if this is good you need to see if the defrost timer or adaptive defrost board is bad

You should have a tag / sticker on or near the compressor. This will tell you the info for servicing
I hope this helps:).

normally, most freezers will accumulate frost . it can't really be helped. however , the amount of frost can be controlled as it is basically a by-product of three things . 1.how often you open the door, 2.how well the door seals, and finally, 3.how well the food is sealed before it is frozen.
