It is most likely that the defrost drain is blocked in the freezer causing the water to drain through the air vents. You will most likely have to remove the rear panel in the freezer and pour hot water in the drain trough until the drain clears up and the water drains down the drain tube.

It will be in the freezer behind the rear panel. You will most likely have to remove the rear panel in the freezer and pour hot water in the drain trough until the drain clears up and the water drains down the drain tube.

Look for a couple plates somewhere around the top and bottom of the door hinges. These can be pried off with a screwdriver. The bolts or screws will be under them.

this appears to be the door switch is either bad or disconnected and has triggered an alarm mode to the display. If the unit is cooling ok then you should remove and check the switch with a meter.

It's now April 29th and I'm probably WAYYY late on this one. First of all, I'm not certain that I have the qualifying answer, BUT here is what I believe could be wrong with your icemaker. I believe there is a fuse in the wire loom coming ouf of the icemaker that could be bad, and if it IS blown, possibility is greatest of a defective motor. Since these motors seem to rarely go bad, I'd be applying a "necessity is the mother of invention" technique and put your gray matter into looking for a commutator that turns this assembly a little deeper in the bowels of this assembly. Those little finger contacts CAN be corroded, but more often lose their tension, which will foul up it's operation. Hope this helps some, and my deep apology that I didn't spot this sooner to try and help you out. Sincerely, Fred

Hopefully you have figured this out. Its fairly simple to do. If your freezer if full you will need to empty enough that you can place your hand in and on the Plastic Light cover. Its in the center at the top of the freezer. This cover is removed by simply applying a little pressure to the right and left corner and pulling toward you and down. The light cover with very little pressure should mover and pull down. Once it begins to lower in the back just keep a hold of it and mover your hand toward the rear of the freezer and the front tabs will slide out.
After changing the light bulb, simply put the front two tabs of the front of the cover in first and snap back into place by pushing up. Takes about 3 minutes to change the light bulb. Good Luck!
