SOURCE: my fridge compartment is warm
Check the freezer for frost on its back wall. The refrigerator gets the cold air for cooling from the freezer section. If you have frost on the back wall you have a problem in the defrost circuit. There are three parts involved in the defrost of the coil. Heaters, thermostat or defrost thermostat, and timing device. If your model has a mechanical timer you can located it and rotate the clutch head screw Clockwise very SLOWLY until you hear one click. This puts the freezer into the defrost mode. After 30 minutes if the defrost takes place and the refrigeration does not restart, rotate the clutch head screw a little more and it will start. This tells you the timer is the problem. If it does restart by itself and defrost does not take place your problem is in the heater of defrost termination thermostat. The timer is generally located near the controls for the temperature.

My husband removed the covers inside the fridge which contain the lights and the cooling fan. The problem was the icing up of the cooling fan (which circulates the cold air) preventing it from rotating also the drain hole at the bottom of the fan was also iced up.
The fridge was switched off at the wall socket whilst working on it. After removing the panel containing the fan and unplugging the connection take the panel outside. A hair dryer was used to thaw out the ice. The drain hole was made slightly bigger to hopefully prevent this happening again.
When panel is screwed back in fridge make sure the black sealing tape is in position also take care not to damage cooling pipes which are attached to the evaporator unit. Defrosting a couple of times a year might prevent this happening again. It seems to be a design problem which im sure the makers will be aware of and modify future appliances. Q Will the makers repair this problem free of charge even if the warranty has expired !?

there is also a fan in the freezer compartment which if broken will cause this problem. you need to check that both fans are working. please refer to other fridge posts here re repairing/ replacing the freezer fan- there is a document here which shows you exactly what you need to do. important thing is to switch off the appliance first and leave the freezer door open for about 20 minutes before attempting to remove the back cover ie let it warm up first, so that you don't break any of the panels.

Sounds like the inside fan is getting worn out. Should vary in speed. Try replacing the fan and see if that fixes it. I'd bet it will. ken

Sounds like a defrost problem. Remove food from freezer section, take the back wall out after removing shelves, and use a hair blower to melt off the ice and frost. Most likely you need to replace the defrost heater.
