Did either prove to be bad?

Fresh food and freezer sections? Hear things working like the evaporator fan motor, condensor fan motor, compressor? Inspected the cooling/evaporator coils? Any strange noises?

No cooling at all in either sections?...if yes, for sure pull the unit out and remove lower back panal to see if the compressor is running or not. Both fans and compressor should be running at the same time.

That's when you access the evaporator/cooling coils to see what is happening with the frost pattern....all evenly frosted, 1/2 frosted and 1/2 bare, ball of ice, etc.

Wand arm on the side of the icemaker not jammed, can move freely? Lift the arm up in the off position to see if the icemaker will then shut off.
