I have a Kenmore frost free refrigerator that I bought new just over a year ago. It has worked great right up until the past week. It hasn't been moved from the location it has been while it was working great. A week ago I noticed the milk wasn't as cold as it usually is and there seemed to be alot of frost built up in the freezer. I turned the refrigerator control to colder but it didn't make much of a difference. The freezer seems to be working fine other than the frost build up and it is frost free. I also thought about it and I haven't heard the automatic defroster kick on, it usually crackles and pops. I noticed on the compressor that there is a tan colored sticky substance. I though it was glue from the container on top of the compressor that the water runs into when it defrosts. I have a tech coming on Monday. The compressor and sealed units are still covered under warranty. Tech call is still $65.00 dollars though. What is wrong with it. It's a new Kenmore for god sake. PLEASE HELP GUYS.

** there seemed to be a lot of frost built up in the freezer. ... What is wrong with it. **

Sounds like a defrost system (see the following link) failure. Which *part* of that system is the actual cause can only be determined through testing.

- How does a frost free refrigerator's defrost system work?
