fridge ok but freezer stops freezing food while still making ice
I've been using this Amana side-by-side since 2004.
The fridge is working fine.
The freezer is still making ices.
The freezer's coldness, which remains at/above 40 degrees Fahrenheit (since 2 weeks ago), is obviously colder than fridge's but is not cold enough to freeze foods.
Today I removed all the foods in the freezer to open the inside back panels and removed the ice buildup that was right above the coils using a hairdryer.
But it remains about the same so far for the past 5 hours.
Could someone please advise what I could look into next? Or, is it about time to replace it with a new one?
Thank you very much in advance!
Is dit een goede vraag?
