Thermistors input temperatures to the control boards. Thermistors may have a 2k Ohms value at 70° F, a service manual or guide, or look up part number for replacing any thermistor out of range.

Check the line that goes from the water pipe to the back of the refrig. Someone may have used something they shouldn't have. The lines in the refrig won't break down like that.

Often it's the gears that become bad. See if you can get a new gear set or call in an appliance repair service to install or at lease check it out.

Probably the unit is trying to fill because the on/off bar it down (senses the level of ice in the tray). Lift it up to turn off.

Set it initially to 5, then adjust after 8 hours as needed. If the regular liquids (not alcohol) start to freeze in the fridge section, it's too cold!

39E is a bad ice maker as you know. Try to heat up the ice maker with a hair dryer in case ice has jammed the ice maker from rotating properly. If it still doesn't work, the entire ice maker would need to be replaced I'm sorry to say. '

So error 40E means your ice maker fan isn't running properly and 24E means your freezer isn't defrosting properly. Both items are inside the freezer behind the back wall. You'll need to pull everything out of the freezer and remove the entire back wall inside the freezer. Thaw any ice or frost built up you see with a hairdryer. Re-install everything and then on the dispenser press and hold the upper right and upper left buttons to reset the error codes. If everything resets, then great. If it won't reset, then you need to replace your defrost temperature sensor clipped onto the top of the silver coils behind the back panel you removed, and you also need to replace the ice fan motor.

With a miniscule leak, it is not easy to detect with liquid type detector, a halogen leak detector may or may not detect it.
What after a leak is detected, it needs to be patched, soldered, but refrigerant would need to be removed first.
You may install a tap on service port, it clamps on the line and no soldering required.
With normal operation, the top 2/3 of the condenser coil is hotter than the bottom 1/3 of the coil.
