My kenmore has never worked super well.  It symptoms are freezer freezes ice but ice cream is never hard.  Refridge is cold most of the time till it gets over 95. great winter fridge.  I've used your flow chart coils are clean and everything else seems to be in order.  I did notice something last summer.  shelves in fridge looked bent, turns out all of back wall inside was full of water.  drained water out and left off for a day.  It seem to be working ok again but summer is here and problem back.starting to put milk and stuff I like to be fully frozen in back fridge( garage sale unit that works great).

I am wondering if defrost cycle is to long,  sometimes ice is super solid and other times it is melting.  Freezer temps down to -10, fridge about 36

What kind of instrument are you using to measure these freezer temps? A freezer at -10F means the sealed system is good and the problem is either  defrost cycle or air distribution.  

 

Your unit does use the ADC control board that has an algorithm problem and Whirlpool (the actual manufacturer) has issued a tech bulletin on this problem.  It basically comes to clipping out R10 on the ADC board:

marshalls instrument gage, i wait 24 hours.  So if I remove r10 this will solve air distribution problem.  when the ice partially melts so instead of ice cubes i have ice blocks points to defrost cycle. trying to find manual that shows where defrost timer, control board is.  should i try r10 first and see what happens?

Removing R10 disables the ADC algorithm and makes the board do a straight timed defrost cycle. No direct effect on air distribution except as it may be affected by incomplete defrosts from the ADC algorithm.

I found ADC board clipped out r10 plugged back in and lets see what happens.  Thanks for all your help.  How many beers do I have to serve to you before I will  take the pebbles from your hand?
