check and clean the condenser coil under the ref , remove the back to the ref if the compressor is real hot you need to put a fan behind the ref for a couple of hours until the compressor cools down then plug it back in.

That is usually the evaporator fan motor ($30).
Check to be sure you can get a replacement fan first, they last about 4 - 5
years. Can get from a parts supplier or electric motor company.
Unplug fridge. Located usually in top of freezer behind a vented cover
plate. Remove cover, remove screws holding fan in, may have to cut wires.
Replace with new motor, make sure the fan pushes air into the freezer area and
doesn't spin backward drawing air from the freezer area.
The possibility is that the freezer fan is not working or the passage from the freezer to the refrigerator where the fan blows the cool air from the evaporator is blocked. Also if you say you manually defrost it could be that it is not self defrosting which can also cause this problem because the evaporator will build up ice and block the flow of the fan air
You need to look inside the freezer at the rear wall cover and see if it is frosted over. If your refrigerator is not defrosting that can cause the refrigerator side and the freezer side also not to cool to the desired temp.
is the fan in the freezer working when compressor is on? if not you need to replace it. do you have a large frost build up on the back wall of the freezer? if so you have a defrost problem, or back to the evaporator fan. If the fan is working you have a defrost problem which could mean a bad heater, timer, or bad defrost thermostat....
hi thanks for the question yes lots of times i would check the fan motor in freezer you should be able to hear the fan going with the freezer door open if not replace the fan motor in freezer and also check for frost build up in freezer thanks the appliance doc
1. Check freezer temp. Above 5 degrees? Icemaker will not start. 2. Make sure there is water coming to the refrigerator from the supply line. 3. Is the refrigerator clean underneath? Fan running? Dirty refer bottom can cause high freezer temps, see #1. Ideal freezer temp is -5. Icemaker and valve should be checked by a service tech.
