Question about Refrigerators
The most common problem that causes these types of problems is the Fan. As long as the compressor comes on underneath the refer it is probably the fan in the interior not blowing the cold air around. the fan is plastic with a metal drive shaft, eventually the two separate, the fan motor dies, or ice builds up in the area around it and as it warms up, ice melts allowing the fan to spin again. easy do it yourself for $80- - $100 bucks. you do have to remove the panel in the back, usually in the freezer section, to access the fan; look around see if ice is blocking it (no frost freezers melt door water and can run into the fan space). if it's not spinning pull it out, take an old power cord and wire it to the fan and plug it in ( dont let the two wires touch ) if it runs then it is something else. watched a guy fix mine a long time ago, it was the ice thing, i was watching him where he couldn't see me. Said it needed a new fan, put it in. I asked for the part when he was done, could see it in the bag, said left it in the truck and cut the wire off really close and said it was broken ( it was a fresh cut). soldered a wire back on and it worked fine. had a fan go out in a rental, same size, put that good old broken fan in. don't think I've replaced it yet.
