I went ahead and signed up for Sears' service warranty since I knew I had to get someone to come out. IT costs $200/yr. They say it covers everything, but when the technician came out, he told me that it just covers $500 per visit. He said that a new motherboard and the labor alone was going to make it $498. Anyway, he had ordered a new motherboard. Apparently the motherboard wasn't working. It is located in the back bottom left side of the refrigerator behind the panel. There is a compartment on the lefthand side that slides out and houses the motherboard. He put that in and also had to fix the fan that is in the back of the freezer. That fan is the one that sends cool air up to the refrigerator part. When I had looked at the fan before the repair man came, it was not moving at all. So at least take a look at the fan in the freezer. Just take out the freezer drawers, and the fan is located in the top center of the freezer behind the compartment cover. Maybe that's the problem with your refrigerator, the fan. Hope that's all it is. Good luck!

The unit was built bt LG. It is a computer controled unit and the timer is built into the main control board on back of the unit. However, the most likely cause of the broblem is the defrost terminator located on the evap on the upper right hand corner. Also, try unpugging the unit it will reset the computer board. You will also have to defrost the unit.

SOURCE: refrigerator not cooling
This could be that it is out of balance. Set the temperature settings to midway. This control can easily get the fridge temp out out of balance if over adjusted. If you already have the tmp control at midway then you need to make sure there are no obstructions to the duct that carries the cold air from the freezer to the fresh food section to cool it. Check for ice buildup or any kind of blockage. Let me know what you find.

Totally up to you. Most people set them for the temp they like their milk and the firmness of their icecream

I have the same problem with this refrigerator. It looks like Sears Parts Direct sells all the parts for this unit except for the printed circuit board and temperature control switches. I called my local repairman and set up an appointment. He called back to cancel his appointment because he was also unable to get the electronics. Were you able to fix your unit? What did you replace?
