Question about Refrigerators
The fridge is from West Point company and we brought seven years ago. Last year was also not working in the complain The technician said that the setting of the cooling is not good .
After 2 days when it starts to warm up are you turning it off and then turning it on again later and it works? If it is working repetitively for 2 days at a time and you are having to turn it off in between then you most likely have a circulation problem. It will be either the circulation fan or the defrost element. These are both behind the rear panel. If it is working for 2 day intervals and your doing nothing inbetween then sure it may be the controls.

Your condenser coil is frozen up with condensate...need to fix the defrost system, most likely it is the control sub module.

we bought a f&p fridge freezer and in summer noticed it wasn't cooling and the freezer wasn't freezing, when the service guy came out he noticed our ducted air con was blowing onto the fridge, once we had redirected the air con outlet the fridge started working as normal, apparently f&p's work on air being convected around the cabinet of the fridge and air blowing on the fridge can effect the temperature of the convected air. hope this helps you or someone

It sounds like you have a plugged defrost
drain line. This is where the water goes to in the bottom of your
freezer when it goes through the defrost (removal of ice from the
freezer coil) cycle. It sounds like that hole is plugged and now the
water/ice has now frozen in the vent that lets air circulate down into
your refrigerator compartment. What I usually do in this case is to
unplug the refrigerator, empty out the freezer compartment. Usually I
also end up either pulling off the back panel or the bottom panel (in
the freezer compartment) Looking for that defrost drain hole and
actually I use a hair dryer. I can sometimes do this also by pouring
small amounts of HOT tap water onto it and then sopping/absorbing it
away with a sponge or dishcloth. I repeat this until I get the water to
go down the drain tube.
Hope this helps,

Try changing the damper settings in fresh food compartment. Your refrigerator has a control board and it is possible the board is no longer working correctly. If your board is bad I can help you locate one. If the fridge is still under warranty I would have the technician come out. He would possibly just change out the board without testing to original board. Other things that could cause problems are thermistor and defrost thermostat located inside the freezer and attached to the evaporator coil. If you continue to have problems, let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze
