Agreed. Is this an indication that the refrigerant is low as Furd suggested? I thought the defroster was at the top so it surprises me that is where it is icing up. BTW, the freezer temp spiked to...

The temp seems to be staying at around 11 and 42. This is borderline usable, I think. The unit is pretty empty because I'm afraid that food would spoil if the temp spikes up again. Below is what...

I put the middle cover that goes over the fan back on. The temp this morning was 4 and 36 (set at 0 and 37). When might the defrost cycle kick on?

Thanks Furd, that's kind of what it looked like from image. Unfortunately it is not disconnecting. Very, very frustrating! Perhaps it is frozen? In any case I've unplugged the unit so it should...

Thanks for the link. The Inset Air Fz and Tower Air Fz Asm are in the way. It appears that these have to come off first? But I don't see how. Very frustrating!

The problem is back! The temp as of 2:30 today is 19 and 44. It has been steadily increasing. Can this be the same defrost issue already?? If not, then what else could it be?

This morning the freezer was -1 and fridge 38. It appears the patient has stabilized. :) I'm still a bit hesitant to restock the fridge though. If it is indeed a defrost issue, what should I...

The temp this morning was -3 and 37. This is very promising. But I noticed there was a puddle of liquid by the compressor and fan. This definitely wasn't there before I unplugged the unit. I've...
