Question about Refrigerators
I have had the repair guy out three times, this week will be the fourth. It started out with the freezer not freezing and then the refrigerator not cooling evenly. First he vacuumed the back and thought it would be fine with proper air circulation, then he replaced the motherboard which was burnt out then inside the fridge side the component with the mechanical flap to open and close to let air in was replaced. As of today, the freezer is fine, the refrigerator is not cooling at all, barely tepid. The repair guy is due back this week, any suggestions before I poison someone with spoiled food. Thanks for your help in advance.
Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if
there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not
defrosting as it should.

Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.
Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm
Is the evaporator fan in the freezer running. It blows cold air into the fridge side through a damper in the wall between the freezer and fridge. Make sure the damper is open.
Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).
