remove evrything from bottom of freezer. take out the shelves . You will see a panel on the back of the unit with screws holding it on take these off . under it is the freezer exchange coils they got froze up, and frosted full so now no air is circulated between the cabintes, refridge and freezer do not use any sharp object to clear it use a towel and blow dryer to thaw it even a spray bottle with warm water, but don't pick at it!!!! you can puncture the coils . take your time and you will save your unit. also while your at it pull it away from the wall remove that small panel from the back, and the grill from the front and with your long reach nozzle vacuum the heat ex changer coils under the unit. put back together carefully and it will run for a while longer i have one that is a 72 model still runs great Oh any change you find is mine!
I understand that your fridge is warm and your Feezer is cold. I have wrote a tip just about this porblem with refridgerators that will help you to fix the problem that you are having. Below is a link to the tip that you will need to follow in order to repair your unit.
Pull it from against the wall, to let it breath. The condenser is usually in the back of the frige...It can also be a problem with the compressor or it's simply loosing freon. Make sure doors shut with a seal too. Try adjusting both thermostats too.
The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper)
between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through
it.There is a flap you adjust with the
fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the
fridge temp . OR .
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer
are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of
cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.
Mod. R47 gas RV fridge 1973. It lights and gets cold (sometimes below freezing in the bottom of frige) then it starts to warm up above 55, but the flame is still burning high. I try to turn it down with the fridge thremostate and it stays the same. Is it the thermostate? If so where can I order one?
