So I decided to try a temp fix myself. I figured that he cooling elements were all iced up again, so I moved all the frozen stuff from the freezer into a cooler and unplugged the whole thing. I'd watched the repair guys, sort of the last 2 times they'd been here. So, armed with my electric screwdriver I removed a few screws and took the panel next to the ice maker off. Then I got my hair dryer out and started blowing hot air in to the air vents. After a bit I could see ice melting when I looked though the vents. I know the repair guys had removed all the plastic shielding inside so I figured I could do it too.
I managed to get the fan shroud off, and yep, the elements were totally iced up.
|Ice all melted.|
|Oops, forgot to put the fan shroud back on.|
