If it's iced up then that would hold it shut until it melts.

Icing up is usually caused by a bad seal!

I am pretty sure you are having a defrost by CouponDropDown">drain blockage problem. Most defrost every eight hours and over a period of time the drain line that comes down from freezer into a cup like object top middle and back of the fresh food section. If blocked by gunk or ice you will see trails of liquid leaking down the rear wall of fresh food compartment until it reaches the crisper drawers.This is not always the same with every model as you may see frozen ice flowing down ther rear wall of freezers on side by sides. Here is an example Click here=> Whirlpool Leak Photo taken by TechnicianBrian He has been around a good bit and deserves credit for his contributions. Here is another way to make this look more si mple in clip below. TechnicianBrian.com And in this photo are several parts listed in photo group #1 were it is most likely running down the wall=> MagicChef CTB1921AR fresh food section. If you still have questions please ask and rate me if I was able to explain this well enough. Every refrigerator is made different so these are examples only. The key is to find if ice or just gunk has blocked you defrost drain. Unplug and then remove the rear panel in back of freezer. We need to see if the water is overflowing the condensate drain tray or if the blockage is in the turn the drain leads down back of your refrigerator. Much more on this page=> Leaking Refrigerators! This is a common tip so I will be placing this post and add as we go new ideas listed in Sea Breeze Tips Section. If you run into any problems along the way of repair please let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Your refrigerator has at least three motors with fans in addition to the compressor motor. The one most suspect is the one that passes air from the freezer to the refrigerator.

JUST ROTATE YOUR THERMOSTAT TO THE MAXIMUM AND WATCH IF STARTS COOLING THEN ADJUST THE THERMOSTAT TO YOUR REQUIRED LEVEL LATER ON. iN CASE IT DOES NOT START COOLING CHECK THE COMPRESSOR WHETHER IT IS WORKING, IN CASE YES THEN THERE IS NO GAS IN IT

If the common in your house is grounded, as it should be in the older wiring systems it should work unless the refridgerator is only grounded through the ground lug. If that is the case AND you know the house is wired correctly throughout, ie no wires switched in any switch or outlet, you can ground the common at the fridge. BEWARE! If one outlet or switch is wired backwards and you do this you will get zapped when you touch the refridgerator.

Check if your water filter is up to date, if not check if the ice maker has the option to choose the side of the ice cubes, if so, set it up to medium side.

You may have have your freezer drain stopped up and when it goes into defrost, it melts and the water spills over to the lower section being the crisper. This is a simple fix. You just need to find out where the water is coming from .
