whirlpool model et18rkxyw00. I recently installed a new defrost thermostat on this stacked freezer fridge unit. All is well and it has healthy looking coils. I went back for a repair on another appliance and she pointed out that there is a barnacle of ice building up underneath the air inlet into the fresh food compartment. It is hanging down from the center bottom flat area and the airway looks clear. On the shelve below there is a little frozen water, I guess from when drips occur in the defrost mode. I checked the defrost drip line and ran water down it and it is all clear. I think I know the problem but would like to know if there are any other things to look for. The hinged side fridge gasket has tears at the top and other areas and the whole 3' or so of the magnetic strip that is inside the gasket is missing. thanks

Door Gaskets:

Try the George Wa$hington test.

Close the Door on George and take him for a ride around the Door Gaskets and check to be sure he stays snug.
