In most older reefers, the fan in the back of the freezer does the entire job. It blows cold air through a duct that leads to the ******. If you have no cold air in the ******, but your freezer is still cold...but barely, your fan is shot.

Sounds like the defrost circuit of your fridge has failed. If you remove the back panel of the freezer compartment, you will see the evap coil encased with ice. Normally the defrost circuit will turn off the compressor and turn on a heater to warm the coil to about 45 degrees to melt any frost build up. After about 40 minutes the compressor will kick back in to keep your fridge cool again.

The typical failures are that the defrost heater burns out. If you have an older fridge, the defrost timer fails to advance, causing the fridge to stay in cooling or defrost mode.

This can be a complex problem. Test whether the defrost heater circuit is getting 120 v from the main control board. If it is getting the voltage, the main control board is okay. You could have a broken heating element or a blown fuse in the defrost control assembly. Here's a video for a different error code that shows how to access the freezer evaporator in that type of refrigerator: youtube.com/watch?v=a4MdwuoN3jc Unplug the refrigerator and use the procedure in that video to remove the evaporator cover in the freezer. Check the resistance through the defrost heater and replace it if it's electrical open (measures infinite resistance). If the defrost heater is okay, you may need to replace the defrost control assembly which contains the defrost thermistor and fuse. You might want to call a service person on this.

u more than likely have to remove the bottom plate first and the screws along the back wall are most likely covered with a plastic covering

There should be an access panel on the back side of the refrig. Remove that you you should see a tube running down into the drain pan. Often that tube gets plugged and needs to be removed and cleaned. If it is a rubber tube, consider replacing it as the rubber gets old and sticky with age and that stickyness causes the plugging.

Would you tell me why you want to repair this water line? I'm not clear about the problem you are having. To prepare the refrigerator for service. You will need locate the shut off valve to the refrigerators water supply line. After the water is turned off. You can slowly and carefully pull the appliance away from the wall. If the water supply line to the refrigerator is copper tubing. You want to move the unit as little as possible. The more it is moved the more there is a chance of developing a leak. Depending on the installer, they may have used copper or nylon tubing. Copper is similar to metal in the respect that if the line is bent repeatedly. The material will weaken and could crack. This will not happen quickly. It's just a good practice to leave it alone and move it only when necessary. Please write back and explain where the unit is leaking and let me know if you are referring to the water supply line going to the refrigerator. If you suspect that the water line inside the door is leaking please tell me where. It is a common mistake that owners think their refrigerator has a damaged hose. In actuality the water control valve assembly is worn out and leaking. Feel free to write back with any questions and I'll do my best to help you figure this out. You don't want to waste your time pulling a door apart when the problem wasn't even there to begin with.
