Question about Refrigerators
The motor in the freezer is running fine and blowing some cold air. There is a bit of frost in the freezer but not a crippling amount. The refrigerator is not getting any cold air and there's nothing coming out of the cold air distributor at the top of the refrigerator compartment. Any ideas which part? (THanks!)

SOURCE: Warm fridge, cold freezer
I had the same problem. There was tons of ice build-up in the freezer back wall which prevented the cold air from flowing into the refrigerator section. I removed all the products from the freezer, and melted the ice - even took off the back panel (lots of ice back there). It solved the problem.

I have a Kenmore w/ freezer on bottom. The top vent in the fridge is ducted to the freezer and is supposed to blow air. Mine was not.
I removed all the frozen goods and took off the back panel (inside to unit) which had a little ice on it. Underneath the panel was a solid wall of ice......including the motor which is supposed to blow air up to the 'fridge. I'd bet a beer that is your problem as well.
The ice seized motor will not be harmed because it is resistance loaded.
The best part is with a blow dryer and some elbow grease...the fix is free! I hope it helps.
