check freezer for frost build up on back wall and if fan blowing, check condenser make sure clean, and fan blowing, check vents in refrig. make sure no blockage, freezer control should be in the middle setting, you can try turning that to Warmer freezer allowing MORE air to refrigertor side.

SOURCE: zanussi fridge compartment has stopped cooling but freezer is ok

How to check everything
http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php


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.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

My Daewoo fr590nws is not cooling in the fridge compartment. the freezer compartment works perfect.


At a guess, I'd say the air channel between the freezer and refrigerator section is iced over. The easiest way to fix this is to switch off the unit, and leave it to defrost overnight. If the condition persists after this please repost your issue.

My RJ 523V-R refrigerator has worked perfectly for 8 years, but suddenly stopped cooling the fridge properly while the freezer seems ok. how can I fix this?


Often times their is a fan from the freezer section to the refrigerator section, of some brands of boxes. If the fan goes out, the refrigerator sections no longer cools.

Mullion heater is not the problem. If the refrigerator is not cooling look to the freezer compartment for your problem. Air from the freezer is used to cool the refrigerator(s) section. If the freezer coil frosts up it stops air circulation to the rest of the system. Although you may think the freezer is working properly it may have a defrost problem and will show up there also. Look for signs of frost on the back wall of the freezer as a sign of the coil freezing. The mullion heater is designed to put out just enough heat to stop condensation between the outside temperatures and the inner compartmant temperatures. If the inner compartment is warm the heater will seem warmer than normal.

Check for frost build-up behind back wall in freezer. If there is a heavy frost build-up, it's not defrosting. This will restrict airflow to refigerator section and can stop fan. If fan is stuck again and it's not because of frost, replace evaporator fan motor.
