I guess you haven't heard that knowledgeable consumers no longer buy much of anything from Sears, especially appliances. That said, from your description of the problem and what the genius repairman did to correct it, the problem appears to be the lack of a proper seal between the freezer door and the fridge.

He did the easiest and least effective repair in smearing silicone on the door seal. Even if it fixed the problem, it was only temporary. A couple of things might fix the problem. One, you need to determine if the door is properly aligned and can create a good seal.

You can do this by putting a stiff/new dollar bill in the door on the seal and close the door---in more than one place on the door. Try to pull it out with the door closed. If it is seal good, you will have to exert some force to get the bill out with the door closed. If it slides out easily, the door is not sealed properly.

Also, take a look at the door seals themselves. Are they damaged in any way or brittle and/or cracked? If the door appears to close properly---equally onto the fridge frame then my guess would be a bad seal which can easily be replaced by Sears. This is really not rocket science, even for Sears.

Determine the cause and then fix the problem.

Personally, I would demand Sears fix it and if they don't, dispute the charge as defective product delivered and refusal of Sears to fix the problem and then wander over to Lowe's and buy a new one from another manufacturer. Lowe's will deliver most appliances for free costing over $399---as I recall.
