You need a registered refrigeration technician. It either needs refrigerant gas or the thermostat is faulty. Worst case scenario is that it is the compressor. Correct diagnosis is the key, but you have to have a licence to use the gas.

The purpose of a refrigeration circuit is to move heat from the inside of the cabinet to the outside.

The compressor pumps refrigerant around the circuit and if everything is ok the evaporator is cold and the condenser becomes warm. If the compressor is running but nothing inside or outside is happening either the compressor is defective or the refrigerant has leaked away.

If the condenser is warm or hot but the inside is not cold the defrosting panel might be permanently switched on.

Check to ensure items in and around the refrigerator and the door are not preventing the door from closing on its own.

Yes , your fridge can get stuck in defrost mode. If you can locate the thermostat. Sometimes buried behind a panel in the freezer. There's an adjustment screw or trim screw that allows you to advance the timer on the thermostat. Sometimes they stick in the defrost mode. It may happen once and never happen again. If however it does continue you will have to replace that part.

The defrost water drains into a holding pan and is evaporated away. The video displays the most likely problem.

The water is condensation from the air. It maybe pooling in the wrong place due to blocked drainage in the unit.

Heaters and defrost timers, and thermal cutouts should be changed at the same time.

This should be serviced by a factory authorized technician, who should make all repairs totally free of charge....i.e. no charges for anything. Consult your user manual on warranty issues.

Inspect door seals for shifting, bunching, and tears and adjust or replace them. Inspect shelving in compartment to make sure of proper positioning. Inspect door baskets for item protruding over the top and holding door back. Inspect door for loose hinges allowing doors to sag.
