    samsung srs535nw fridge side not cold. a few months ago I replaced the temp sensor in the rear of the freezer side and the unit has been running well. This week the fridge side has slowly been getting warmer. I replaced the temp sensor on the fridge side but it hasnt helped. Fridge is running. Its cold in the lower half of the freezer side, but warmer at the top. The fridge side is not cold. Is it a fan problem? The freezer side is not iced up at all.

If the compressor runs but doesn't cool then it is possible you are low on refrigerant. Also if you recently moved the unit by laying down to transport from one place to another, it may have developed an air lock in the lines and may cure itself by simply letting it sit over night unplugged

    ok, I.ve made a bit of a blunder, but better to come clean so others don't get lead astray. I checked the compressor cooling fan, was running ok. Compressor running but not excessively hot. Coils covered in dust so cleaned those. My next step was to see if the evaporator fan was running. Where is that I wondered? Probably behind the panel inside the freezer compartment. Took the panel off and found the cooling coils all covered in ice . The evaporator fan was running fine btw. De_iced with a haidryer. Fridge running well now. So, since I replaced the temp senso a few months ago I suppose I must have a faulty defrost heater, or the timer/controller that activates the defrost heater. Any suggestions how I progress from here?

Most refrigerators get their cooling from the freezer. I suggest that you give it some time, and make sure the small door or damper leading from the freezer to the fridge is open and not obstructed by any food items
