Question about Refrigerators
My mother had a problem of the circulation fan freezing up, therefore not keeping things cool in her mini fridge. When I went to visit her, she asked me to take a look at it. When I opened the door, I found it stuffed full and she was right, it was not cooling. So, I began emptying everything out to find that she had inadvertently blocked the circulation vents with packages of hamburger buns. After allowing the fan to thaw out, I turned it back on and reloaded it, being careful not to block the vents again. Checked it later and found it working fine. Remember, fixing the symptom isn't always fixing the cause! Hope this helps, if not, at least you know one thing to check if you have a similar problem.

your problem is still poping up even though it was resolve already. i guessed you should rate a technician in this form as to delete the work from the list of jobs to do.. i am on the way to solve it but you had it solve with a real technician.

check continuity thro the fan motor and check it is free to turn. also check if power is present at the fan

Loss of coldness is common with compressor related problems....relay and overload(simple fix), loss/leak of refridgerant(need a cert. tech). need to check the compressor and see if its running....do this by pulling the unit out and removing the back panel, place your hand on the compressor and see if it feels like its running....if not probably just a relay, if it is running, could be a more serious problem dealing with sealed system.
