I meant excessive frost, fan blade grinding on it. The puzzling part is - its been going on for few months, but no temperature issues. Visually , Only vented part of evap cover (fan output) and air duct that leads to icemaker are covered with frost. But when I hand press against Evap cover I hear frost crunching behind. I suspect intermittent defrost (board, thermistor, or poor connection) or slow fan, or air leak somewhere. Seal itself is good and no frost around it. Fridge was under warranty up to few months ago, and fellows from Sears defrosted it couple times not solving anything.

soo... it had Defrost problems for a few months, but Sears didn't fix it ...

After it's manually defrosted, it may take up to a few weeks for problems to re-appear.

Pictures of Evaporator Frost pattern would confirm it
