Re: our refidgerater is not cold enough running at about...
Hows the freezer?? is only the refrig warm and freezer still frezzing?? if so id open the freezer door and listen for a fan motor, it should be spinning to circulate air to the top sect(refrig). if not on sounds like a bad fan.. if the fan is on but the rear panle is completly iced over, sounds like a defrost issue

you say its operational again, does that include the cooling as well, or is it running and not cold. if its running and cold, and it was not running when it was previously discovered warm, then your problem is likely with the cold temperature control that you adjusted to get it going. When you first adjusted both controls to the coldest setting, did the unit kick on then or shortly thereafter? then absolutely that is your problem.
Good day, First, on some versions of your machine, there is a fan on the bottom rear, make sure if it has one, that it is running. If it were a defrost component, as you suggested, then you would see a build up of frost and ice on the rear panel in the freezer compartment. If so, you would need to defrost it. There are 3 components to a defrost system. The 2 you described, behind that rear panel, and a timer in the fresh food compartment, in the upper housing. Below is a tutorial on defrost systems. You need a ohm meter to test the components. If none of the above apply, then it is in the sealed system (compressor, leaks in the tubing or restriction in the lines) and would require a trained tech to sort it out.
most refr's dont so well when the ambiant temps fall below 50 degrees. you should not need to adjust the controls must past the "midpoint" usually 4. but 7 is the coldest setting. the best thing you can do is check what the actual temps are in your garage and if you can warm it up to above 50, then the unit should run properly again. if the ambiant temps are too cold, the freezer wont be cold enough and the refr section will freeze things.
First, I think it’s important to know that the Ref side has no cooling coils, it’s basically a box and the cold air in the freezer is blown over by a fan through a channel into the Ref side. This channel has a door which regulates how much cold air goes through. You probably have two control knobs in the Ref side, one controls the temp with numbers 1-9, 9 being the coldest. This temp control tells the compressor how long to run. The other control is for that little door and it may have letters A-E, E being the coldest. If you set it on E (coldest) then this will close that little door and keep most the cold air in the freezer.
So, how can the Ref side be cold and the freezer side not freezing?
1. Coolant leak. There is enough coolant to keep the Ref side cool but not enough to freeze on the freezer side.
2. Defrost system failure. The coils on the freezer side are clogged with ice and it's just a matter of time when the Ref side won't cool either. The back wall in the freezer will be covered with ice/frost
