That model has a history of problems the yoder tube rusts around the doors and gets pinhole leaks and so does the evaporator coil in the upper box the aluminum gets pinholes as well as the epoxy joint where they joined copper to aluminum tubing. Also heard the condenser coil which is steel painted black rusts out from sitting in the water tray by the compressor.

There is a nice french door at Lowes made by Hisense for 1300 and Best Buy sells same fridge under their house brand Insignia for around the same price.

Hello... I checked the issue you gave. I also own lowes. They suggested I get a new one. Can I really do something to repair it?

Hi, I do not understand your post do you have the same model fridge and did Lowes come to repair it?
What did they diagnose as the problem?
Thanks
