thanks for responding! The model # is GS22Y8DV. It was moved with hand trucks and leaned slightly with them just enough to move. Because I new it was bad to lay one down. The lady I bought it from said it was about 6 years old. Hope you can help and it isn't going to cost me an arm and leg. I did notice the there are some ice frost formed on the back inside of the freezer but the freezer still isn't freezing the ice trays. Thanks, Kandy

G'day,

**The model # is GS22Y8DV**

A SxS style.

**The lady I bought it from said it was about 6 years old**

With the serial#, we might be able to tell when it was made.

** I did notice the there are some ice frost formed on the back inside of the freezer but the freezer still isn't freezing the ice trays**

Shouldn't -see- much frost or ice as the frost should be hidden behind the back wall in the freezer. Fan in the freezer working?

Might need to remove the freezer back wall and let us know what the cooling coils look like...all covered with frost, 1/2 frosted and 1/2 bare, ball of ice, etc.

The serial# is 12455906MF. The frost is on the inside of the freezer. I cut the freezer off last night and let it defrost. That seemed to help some. However it still isn't working good.Thanks

Hi,

**The serial# is 12455906MF**

Serial # indicates the unit was manufactured 03/1995

**I cut the freezer off last night and let it defrost.**

With the doors opened? For 12 or more hours?

**However it still isn't working good.**

Definetly need to remove FZ back wall to expose the cooling/evaporator coils and let us know what you see....

**The coils are frozen up!! **

White snow everywhere, if yes....a -temperary- fix is to manually defrost the cooling coils with a hair dryer ( careful of any plastic or foam parts ) and put the cover back on, this will usually last 3-7 days.

Best of course is to find the faulty part(s) and replace them...

I unplugged it for about 17 hrs to defrost and see if it wasn't working because of the move. That didn't work either. What would cause no cool air to come through the holes at the bottom inside holes? Thanks

With the door closed it would take much longer to defrost.

**What would cause no cool air to come through the holes at the bottom inside holes?**

Fan in the freezer working? Cold air comes out the top and gets sucked in at the bottom.
