Any info on electrolux RA1300 gas fridge. Freezer works well but fridge compartment doesn't chill
If you had an electric fridge the problem is usually the evaporator fan motor ($30).
I suspect that you may have the same problem. Generally, freezers are cooled only, when the fridge needs cooling, the evaporator fan comes on and blows cold air from the freezer to the fridge compartment. The advice below is for an electric fridge but may also work for you, it's worth a try I suppose.
Check to be sure you can get a replacement fan first, they last about 4 - 5
years. Available from a parts supplier or electric motor company.
Unplug fridge, or disconnect gas etc. Fan should be located usually in top of freezer behind a vented cover
plate. Remove cover, remove screws holding fan in, may have to cut
Replace with new motor, make sure the fan spins the same direction (CW
OR CCW) as your old one, if you don't know which way it should spin
then be sure it pushes air into the freezer area and
doesn't spin backward drawing air from the freezer area.
