if you go here you can see the damper,fan assy. that's in the top of your machine in the fresh food side http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Damper/WR49X10091/1055112 this is a damper with another fan in it,when the t-stat calls for cold air the damper door opens to let the cold air in from the freezer and the fan in it blows the cold air around inside the fridge,if the freezer is fine and the fridge side is warm most likely this is your problem,part number WR49X10091 and it's around 130 dollars.unplug the machine,remove the light cover on the ceiling,remove the 1/4 inch screws and drop the light assy.remove thhe filter cover on the right side so you can remove the damper assy.pop off the cover on the piece that runs up the back center,remove the screws to the damper,read the instructions and put it back together again.should take you around 45 to 60 minutes.hope this helps and good luck.
Many times a freezer and/or refrigeratordo not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many otherthings that can go wrong.
If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out thelast two tips.
If your refrigerator is running but warm, then...
Check out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a great place to starttrouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then callinga repair person to do a simple thing for you...
With that amount of info it would be hard to try to pinpoint it. Here's a list of items that can cause a refrigerator to not cool.
Items that will cause a refrigerator not to cool..... 1. Defective thermostat 2. Defective freezer fan motor 3. Defective defrost timer 4. Defective defrost thermostat 5. Defective defrost main heater. 6. Defective condenser fan motor 6. Defective compressor overload protector 7. Defective compressor start relay 8. Defective compressor start/run capacitor (some models only) 9. Defective compressor 10. Restriction in refrigeration sealed system 11. Loss of refrigerant (leak) 12. Excessively dirty condenser 13. Broken wires, bad wire harness connectors, ect. 14. Defective fan motor switch (some models only)
As you can see it could be one of many,many items. If your handy with a meter you might want to start at the bottom back of the machine where the compressor is located.
Sounds as if it is not running, or running without refrigerant in the system.
Also, if it has a cooling fan motor in that area, make sure it runs, since all fan motors are wired to run at the same time.
1.The fan motor at the compressor must be running to keep the compressor cool.2. If you hear a clicking sound at the compressor,that is a indication of a bad compressor start relay that must be replaced.
If you are talking about the freezer fan motor, it should be running if the compressor is running. if the compressor runs without the fan running the compressor will overheat and become damaged.
The mullion heater in the door divider is not affected by the compressor.
Compressor will be hot to the touch. You stated the fan was replaced and then said the fan is not cooling. If you replaced the fan and it is now operating, reinstall the panel you removed to install the fan motor. That panel determines proper air circulation to cool the system.
Check the back of you fridge and make sure the coils are clean. If you have access to a small air compressor, blow everything out and make sure the motor are is clean. The build up of dirt on the coils will not let the heat escape during the cooling process.
