Hi,
I had the same problem...it was a defrost problem in the freezer....mad i know...fridge doesnt work but freezer does...so its the freezer problem right!!!
This is how i solved it....there is fan behind the freezer compartment....you need to remove all the freezer draws then the plate at the back of the freezer compartment(everything is accessible from inside the freezer only) once removed you can put your hand up inside the gap(make sure power is off and unplugged) just in reach is the fan which you should be able to rotate with your fingers...mine was covered in ice and not able to move as a result the cold air couldnt be blown up into the fridge(the only thing controlling the air into the fridge is a flap and depending upon what fridge setting you have this determines how much cold air its letting in.)
If the fan has been frosted up you need to defrost the freezer....and source a new defrost sensor.
hope it helps.

    i have this model of fridge/freezer and if i was you i'd cut my losses and get rid of it,i know it sounds drastic but my experience with these has been that as soon as you change one component ,another will fail soon and you will be chasing your tail,the really are made with the cheapest materials available and are not worth the bother.please avoid zanussi fridge freezers at all costs!

Re. Zanussi ZK87/46EFS Fridge Freezer

The same symptom occurred in our fridge freezer. The fridge compartment warmed up whilst the freezer compartment continued to keep temperature.

The cause of our problem was diagnosed as a frozen sensor that controls a flap, that controls the flow of cold air from the freezer compartment up into the fridge compartment. We were advised to power off the fridge freezer (removing all food and trays from the freezer unit first), and to leave it to defrost for 24hrs. We needed to place a few towels on the floor of the freezer compartment to soak up the melt water. After 24hrs we followed the power up instructions in the manual (versions are available online if you have lost yours). Within a few minutes it was obvious that the fridge compartment was being cooled – Problem solved :)

Not cooling at all? or other symtoms that can help us get you going. Can you make sure the refrigerator is listed as Kenmore
Here are some examples of model numbers for this appliance: 106.8782070, 596.58692890, 119.909851, 119.3101279, 198.887482, 253.835123
•  Inside the refrigerator or freezer, on the upper left or right side wall
    •  Behind the lower crisper drawer
    •  Behind the lower toe kick-plate
    •  On the face frame of the refrigerator body
Can you help locate these numbers so I can assist you with the drawing of that door?  TKS,Sea Breeze
