heater which is an issue with all refrigerators no matter what model or brand.

If the wires on the left top hinge are intact and not broken then a multi meter should be used to see
if the door flap heater is measuring some resistants in ohms usually around 15ohms. If only a open
circuit is measured then the door flap heater is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If the door heater is measuring 15ohms and the wiring has been checked and measures OK, then
most likely the main board is faulty and needs to be replaced for correct operation.

The f20 error code is related to the ice maker sensor which is located under the ice-maker inside the
freezer compartment. Usually the sensor wires have broken off due to the continuous twisting of the
ice tray when dumping of the ice cubes. Usually the sensor wiring can be soldered back together if
the wires are not severed too close to the sensor itself.
